We are in possession of a complete set of approximately 500 very old marquee letters that were rescued from the basement of the Victoria Theater in Dayton Ohio in 1967.
Unlike newer letters (e.g. Adler) that were produced in the 1940’s, these letters are reverse-type cut outs, hand soldered with raised edges around each letter. Each letter has a grooved slot in the back to hold a piece of milk glass to allow for illumination from behind.

COPPERAS COVE, TX — The nearly 60-year-old, 250 seat, single-screen Cove Theater in this small town about 55 miles SW of Waco is for sale, as its owner wishes to pursue an acting career. The theater has a rather, shall we say, polychromatic, facade.
Sanders said he is asking $400,000 for the theater. He said he has had an interested buyer since June, but the buyer was unable to come up with the capital because of the recession. Sanders decided to see if he could get other offers.
Of the calls and inquiries Sanders has received, he said the serious ones have been from people who likely would keep the movie theater open.

ADA, OH — Rodney Miller, the current owner of the 61-year-old Ada Theater says in a recent article that the theater is for sale. However, if can’t get the price he wants, he has backup plan: acquire a liquor license , develop a relationship with a pizzaria, and add tables in the theater.
The Ada was substantially renovated in 1986, with additional improvements made since then. Miller owns three other theaters in addition to the one in Ada, home of Ohio Northern University.
Catching Rodney Miller, owner of M. E. Theatres Inc., while he is in Ada and has a moment of spare time is either a difficult task or a stroke of good fortune. On the occasion of the latter, he is gracious enough to talk about his most recent business news: the Ada movie theater is for sale.
“Right now I am running four theaters,” Miller explains, “which is part of the reason for the sale – I’m putting in well over 100 hours per week.”
