Good news! The City of Centralia has approved a one million dollar bond to fund restorations of the Fox Theater. Story here:
The front of the theater is in sad shape. At least electricity appears to be still connected.
The mall replaced the theater with a Krispy Kreme donuts shop. The donut store is mostly deserted every time I drive by it.
Brenkert BX-80 projector heads, RCA 9030 sound heads, RCA projector pedestal, Strong Super Lume-x xenon lamphouse running 2,000 watt bulbs, and Eprad Co-Operator automation. Not shown in this picture is a Strong 5 deck small size platter that was made to fit small booths such as this one.
In “The Olympian” newspaper today is a story about the managing director of the theater suddenly resigning:
Anyone have pictures of the interior of the projection booth?
Is the theater open yet? Anyone able to get interior pictures?
Website is still down and it’s been 4 months now that it has been down.
That’s an RCA “Old Style” junction box that speaker is hanging from.
Tapgirl95: Any chance you can post pictures of the interior of the building?
Are they still using speakers?
Fred Thibodeau was also the longtime owner of the Skyline Drive-in Theater in Shelton, Wash.
Wow, extremely overgrown.
Wow! That’s a beautiful theater inside!
Status should be changed then from demolished to renovating.
I was never able to get inside the theater to take pictures. I could only get exterior photos taken. I haven’t been back to Seaside in several years. So the building did not get demolished? I’d like to see any interior pictures. Any chance the current owner could post some interior pictures here?
Their website has vanished. This is all I get:
HTTP Error 404. The requested resource is not found.
As far as I know, they did not open.
Wow, this is great! I remember that sign. I thought it was gone for good when Act 3 theaters tore it down. I wish the drive in theater was still in operation.
Still have not yet opened for the season.
I guess it’s taking longer than expected. They still have not opened yet for the season.
Yes, the “G” stands for Ghossen, the family who built it.
The right hand storefront (as looking at the front of building) was a barbershop for many years. The left hand storefront was I believe a second hand or antique store.
Let me guess, the hole in the roof is right over the stage and has been leaking on all the backdrops and on the stage floor?
Kingsley Hall had been working on updating all the electrical wiring in the building and had some sort of wood pellet heater installed for heating the auditorium. By chance do you know what happened to the E-L-M-A letters on the sign? I know Kingsley also had a few security cameras setup to keep an eye on the rear doors of the building.
Any more updates? Did you purchase the theater?
Did it convert to large reels? Or did they use 20 minute reels throughout it’s life?
