“A wall in the middle of the main floor (Orchestra) seating divides it into two auditoriums. The former balcony is the third auditorium.” This answers my question regarding this Warner being “twinned”, but after reading this I realize it has been twinned plus one! Hope this Warner returns to a single screen venue.
Love the interior photo that “lost memory” once posted…sure miss that CT member who gave so much of his time and theatre knowledge to CT!
I have just reviewed the link posted on October 24, 2010 and can’t believe my eyes! This theatre was beautiful! The folks of Rochester PA have truly lost a DeAngelis masterpiece!
clarkw: This is a remarkable post and one that truly got my attention! To think Mr. DeAngelis had all of his theatre blueprints at his home! It saddens me to think that local theatre folks didn’t look him up at the time! I truly hope that his irreplaceable archive is somewhere safe and sound. If over time you have any other follow-up to this story, please post! Thanks!
Such a shame that Asheville no longer has the Imperial Theatre today!
Was the Strand originally on College?
Love the old ticket kios! The Warner Theatre/Erie PA still has a kios and it is used!
And SchineHistorian would know as she is the expert on Schine theatres!
Always nice to see a recent post on this Michael DeAngelo designed theatre…very unique exterior with the round windows and that shiny vitrolite.
mcnamara: Just checked out the link you posted…very nice! I wish all little towns could bring back a theatre like Blossburg PA did! Congratulations!
So nice to see this theatre become a theatre again! Must try to see it, in person, someday! Amazing that it was a feed store for 30 years!
I’ve been in the lobby of this theatre and found it to be a great old theatre that is now a teen center. Would love to see it returned to its original design though the lobby is still original.
Carmichael: Very nice post regarding your memories of the Carolina. I still hold out hope that someday the Carolina can be returned to the downtown area.
Yes, any photos?
It’s nice to read about this Oscar night fundraiser and to see a photo of the Denis Theatre on Washington Rd.
I haven’t been to Mount Morris in the past year, but would like to return to see if the theatre is now “just a facade”! So many of these small towns across America that had small theatres have them no more.
What’s the latest with this theatre that needs to be restored and returned to the citizens of Mt. Dora? If the nearby town of Eustis could do it, so can Mt. Dora!
LouB: A wonderful post about a survivor theatre! I have never met the Palace Theatre owner, but hope to this summer as I have talked to him over the phone!
Again, what a lovely theatre and thanks “Driveintheatre” for the addtional flickr photos! This theatre is truly a “gem”!
Thanks again for this Boxoffice article with photos! Another theatre that should be with us!
Thanks Joe for the 1941 Boxoffice article with photos! The fact that it was designed by Michael DeAnglis and was a grand art deco theatre made it special for me though sad to know learn that it is no longer with us due to those ugly words…urban renewal.
Keith: Nice to know that your great grandfather helped paint this cinema treasure in Columbus Ohio prior to its opening! What a painting legacy he left us all.
Thanks Chuck for the good news follow-up information. Do hope and pray there aren’t any problems with the change of ownership!
I’m very saddened to learn about this theatre and how it is being used in 2012. I’m about to read the book by David Margolick, Elizabeth and Hazel. Perhaps all of us should read it and add To Kill A Mockingbird to that list of civil rights books.
