I forgot to add the name of the person who posted the 3 B&W 1948 photos, that I re-posted in the Photos Section above. They were originally posted by Crystal Cheeseman Roling Porter to the “You know you’re from Freeport if…” Facebook page.

I should add “Debut” closed after only 5 performances because of poor reviews. But even if it was the last live show as the Holiday, it was still 1956. But early enough in the year that there is likely little record of it other than her website.

I just added a photo of the Holiday Theatre, with the live show “Debut” starring Inger Stevens on the marquee. According to her website it opened there 2/22/56. Which means live theater lasted one more year than the 1955 date in the Overview.

DavidZornig commented about Hoyburn Theatre on Aug 18, 2013 at 5:14 am

To CT Administrators, please add “Photo copyright J.J. Sedelmaier” to your main description of the Hoyburn Theatre. Since it is the only photo in the Photos Section of the Hoyburn, it is appearing in the overview by default. But the photo credit does not appear unless it is clicked on twice. Which won’t happen since it’s in the overview. Thanks.

CT posted the photo before I could finish writing the description. The Standard Theatre marquee is on the right in 1958. Photo source unknown.

They have a Facebook page called Theatre Dublin. It says they will have a website soon: www.theatredublinga.com but it is not active yet. Elvis impersonator Ben Portsmouth recently played there.

Just added a photo circa 1965 courtesy of Dorn’s Classic Images, www.dornsclassicimages.com Found on the Robert’s World Facebook page.

It also confirms the Lyric was open at least until 1965, beyond the 1951 date in the Overview.

DavidZornig commented about Park Theatre on Jul 15, 2013 at 12:06 pm

Just added a photo of the former Park Theatre in it’s current incarnation as the Montana Candy Emporium. A Google search will also bring up a head on shot.

Status should be changed from “Demolished” as the building is still standing.

Have tried to add this link with the Thompson’s full history and source of the photo, but CT won’t work with Cut & Paste. Maybe someone else can add it.

DavidZornig commented about Thompson's Moving Pictures Theatre on May 27, 2013 at 4:35 pm

I have the Theatre Talks LLC link from which the 1913 postcard image originates from. The link has the full history of the Thompson’s Moving Pictures Theatre. But I am unable to copy & paste it to this CT post. I have sent the link to the CT Admins, and hope that they are able to share it here. And replace the brief description I added when I added the theatre. If anyone else can add the link it would be appreciated too. The word Theatre shoulod be added to the name. The word “Broadwalk” also needs to be changed to “Boardwalk”.

I’ve just been informed the Fargo Theater fashion store conversion photos I posted in the Photos Section, are from October 1974.

DavidZornig commented about Fargo Theatre on May 26, 2013 at 10:09 am

I just added 3 images to the Photos Section. They are courtesy of Chicago graphic artist Shelley Howard. Who in the early `80s was commissioned to design an art deco motif at the Fargo Theatre. For it’s brief run as a designer clothing outlet. This would be what Darrel Wood’s 2005 post refers to.

He designed and painted the marquee and the murals in the lobby interior.

Shelley also designed promotional posters for JAM Productions concerts in Chicago, that hung above the door of NEO nightclub & other clubs. Old school graphics via keyline & paste up, no computers.

The photo I added posted before I could finish it’s description. It is the Chicago Theatre presumably after it closed in 1951. Photo courtesy of IIRC via Scott Grieg via the Forgotten Chicago FB page.

DavidZornig commented about Cherokee Theatre on May 11, 2013 at 4:33 pm

Could this theater also have been called The Capitol Theater at one time? I saw a photo of a Capitol in Lafollette that later became McCarty Fashion Store. I can find no Capitol Theater in Tennessee on CT.

Just added 2 images of a 1926 Hamlin Theatre program, courtesy of Bruce Kelleher. Though 1925 is written along the top, all the films were released in 1926.

Coincidentally there is an article about the recent sale of this theater that came out today.http://www.uptownupdate.com/ www.uptownupdate.com if the link doesn’t work.

DavidZornig commented about TCL Chinese Theatre on Jan 15, 2013 at 7:47 am

Ironically I just received this update, but didn’t recognize the theater name in my e-mail. That’s because since my last update this morning, the Grauman names has been removed from the header on this Cinema Treasures page.

I think it should have been left in place, as it is the most recognizable name associated with this theater. Was TCL behind this change, on a forum that deals more in the history of theaters? I’m just curious, because the CT search feature is not very thorough to begin with. And removing the historic Grauman name will just cause confusion. (It’s the Marshall Fields/Macy’s mess all over again to us in Chicago)

I spent an hour or so searching for a theater on Division Street in Chicago. Only to have another forum find it as The Vision Theater, and sure enough on Division St. The CT search field never brought it up, even though I used every combination of Division Street, St., West, W., Chicago etc.
