Sounds like it closed for the season due to bad weather and flooding.
This is great news!
Picture is of a Glenn E. Koropp Company speaker. Koropp was located in Sacramento.
Is this what was the Liberty Square theater?
Looks like the theater is in excellent condition.
It was in pretty sad shape back then.
So it looks like they purchased the surrounding property in order to expand to 3 screens.
Appears to have three projector portholes.
This view is on 4th Avenue looking west.
There is still talk that the remaining 4 walls of the theater will be torn down and apartments will replace the theater. It looks more and more like the apartments will win out.
It looks like only the center section of seating was replaced with brand new chairs. Still appears to have old seats on the sides.
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.
