Joe: Your boxoffice post on December of 2009 is not providing the information. Help and thanks!
What is the current status of the Dattola?
I have found the photos and find them to be very upsetting. The roof should never have been allowed to deteriorate to its present condition! You can see that the former opera house was a “treasure” at one time. My thoughts will be on that auction come Thursday. Wish I were closer to Binghamton than 200 miles!
General: Thanks for your informative reply. I do hope that the auction is successful with a motivated buyer! Keep us posted with the auction being May 24th.
generalenigma: How is the Riviera Theatre listed on the site you posted on 12/18/10?
Paul: Unfortunately, I won’t be there so please post photos of the event on CT or send to my email (
Going to see the musical Charlotte’s Web on June 2. Can’t wait to see this restored theatre in the heart of the Allentown area of Buffalo.
JPaul: Love the flickr photos that show off the fabulous art deco exterior. The May 24th concert should be a “blast from the past”! Congrats to everyone involved in saving this “cinema treasure”!
Any interior photos?
And does this theatre now have an organ? Former CT member, Lost Memory tells us it had a Beman organ.
LouB: The interior view link doesn’t seem to work.
Hope to see this theatre, in person, soon!
Nice to be updated on the Victory Theatre!
Tinseltoes: Love the vintage theatre photos! Thanks!
Love the 1949 marquee look! Wish it still looked that way!
raysson: Keep us informed about future Foundation for the Carolinas news articles regarding the Carolina Theatre’s future in uptown Charlotte. Thanks.
Thanks Chuck! Love the stage photo of when this theatre was in its heyday! If only…………….
So nice to see “ncmark” post this information and link. I couldn’t bring up the link so found the complete link that all CT readers will find most interesting. I do hope that this Foundation can make a difference for this once remarkable theatre in downtown Charlotte! It is time for this theatre to be resurrected and brought into the uptown theatre district as a theatre destination among the other theatre venues.
David Stear: I see that you added this theatre to CT and wondered if you are from the western NYS area. I’m helping a local historian with the history of the Grand Theatre. Thanks. (
And this theatre has most definitely been demolished and not closed.
Joe: THANKS AGAIN! I do recall this now.
P.S. Did you ever find any other articles about the Grand in another Boxoffice magazine other than in the January 3, 1942 issue?
Joe: Thanks so very much! Since posting on CT last night I did finally find the Boxoffice link called The Vault. I then passed it along to my historian friend for future reference regarding the hometown Grand Theatre. Thanks again!!!!
