I was in Nauvoo earlier this week. The hostess of the eatery pried open the plywood coverings of one of the theater doors and showed me the interior. Indeed,the theater is INTACT and could be re-upped,so to speak. As tourists flock in increasing numbers,to this astonishing town,there just might be a market for this ancient venue to live again.

I thought I had noticed that TITANIC was the last film.

All it takes is a stroll thru the google world to see what a nice place this was.

Miss Toes has found something very interesting. The Trenton/Warner needs more research.

According to their website-should be changed to OPEN. This old classic came so close to being demolished,after escaping “condo conversion”,believe it or not.

A TWO MILLION DOLLAR grant by Mr.& Mrs.November will facilitate a total renovation of facade.

A shot of the dedraggled facility shows up in a new car magazine in an article about the Buick LaCrosse.

Just spent an hour going through over a hundred pages of the old roanoke website.On it are pics of the MUSIC ACADEMY,which is fairly well remembered-and should be on this site- quite beautiful,but also the RIALTO(Campbell Ave.)and the PARK,nearby,probably on Jefferson.

If you turn the pic to the left(S),the tall building next to the shorter,old building is the site of this former great theater.Still angers me.

Article in today’s Tribune goes into continuing limbo of this wonderful venue.Best thing is a gallery of recent interior shots.

How can the theater be “too far gone”?? The building seems sound.Has ANYONE seen the place inside?

Chuck,I’m just thankful that it,amazingly,has survived,mostly intact.Yes,SLC once had one of the finest collections of downtown movie venues.Remember TAMPICO,between Main & State,in an alley.That and the Heidelberg,were my favs for dates when coming up from Happy Valley.Were you around when the Sound of Mucus played for over a year on Main St.?

SO-you are saying Utah is a “different” kind of place? You betcha.I liked you till you said you wore RED.(lol) I am glad I am old enough to have lived in downtown SLC when most of the old theaters still operated.Walking to those wonderful bygone places was a thrill I did not appreciate enough at the time.I still wait to see the final fate of the UTAH.

Very popular with both locals and the BYU crowd for many years.What was so nice about the Pioneer,the Art City just to the South,as well as the two in Orem-they were CLEAN,safe and well-run.

Funny you should mention spooks.I just saw the “GHOST LAB” guys doing the Florida.The place IS seriously haunted,as are so many old places.Good shots of the beauty of the place.

The pathetic fact is that this ruin is the most intact old theater left in Petersburg.

It looks BAD.Going downhill fast.It is quite a small place.Petersburg,overall,is a sad place,with a street here and there getting attention,while three go downhill.
