Two of the old ovular, flashing Pussycat logos have been rescued from storage and have been hung inside and outside the theatre, which now shows straight porn in addition to gay smut.

Photo and story about this now-closed theatre is here: http://www.dailynexus.com/news/2006/11140.html

Demolition begins in about three months, apparently.

The Metropolitan website says it’ll be reopened as a theatre in summer 2006. Yay.

Make that “February 2006”.

Gutted and closed as of February 2005. Possibly to be replaced by office space.

Ken, do you have a link to a page with showtimes for the Avalon?

Ken does that edition of the Film Daily Yearbook give an address for the Claremont Theatre?

Was this known as the Cinema Showcase at some time in the mid-1990s?

Moderators, please merge comments on this, as it’s a duplicate listing for /theaters/5478/

Street numbering is all weird, though.

Is this a different Ritz Theatre from the one that was on 7th Street?

MagicLantern commented about Hayworth Theatre on Jan 22, 2006 at 10:55 pm

Somewhere along the line the church moved out and the marquee has been retrimmed in green neon, now called The Hayworth(!) Apparently now it’s theatrical presentations. Very strange.

There’s a “for rent” sign on this theatre recently.

MagicLantern commented about Palace Theatre on Jan 22, 2006 at 3:39 pm

Saw this marquee change, too. Looks like they were wrapping up filming this weekend; the job they did on changing it to the Detroit was amazingly seamless.

MagicLantern commented about Globe Theater on Jan 22, 2006 at 3:31 pm

Letters O and B on the right-hand side word GLOBE have fallen off. Not sure if they fell into the street or back behind the marquee.

MagicLantern commented about Broadway Theatre on Jan 22, 2006 at 3:27 pm

The vertical “Teatro Broadway” sign has been removed. The entire building is being renovated, possibly to become loft space as is currently the fashion downtown. Couldn’t be a better time than now to see if photographs of the inside can be taken. Joe, I got those Tally’s New Broadway dates from Mike Rivest’s old list.

MagicLantern commented about 101 Drive-In on Jan 17, 2006 at 10:18 pm

Opened in 1956 as the One-O-One Drive-In Theatre, it operated under this name until 1967 or 1968, at which point it became the Pacific One-O-One Drive-In Theatre, from 1969 through its closing. A huge new clutch of shopping malls inhabits this space now.

Isn’t this a duplicate of this listing?
