This theatre is marked as closed and it should be marked as demolished.
I called the Ridgway Chamber of Commerce and have learned that the town spells its name as Ridgway without the letter E.
What is Jacko’s?
The name at the former Rialto Theatre site looks like Jacko’s. What is there now and is there anything reminiscent of it being a theatre?
I brought up the link, but didn’t see any text…only a great photo of the underside of the marquee being restored. Can you repost this Buffalo News article?
LouB: Thanks for the Buffalo News link! I have heard there is an outdoor cafe near the Palace. It would be fun to meet there for lunch some afternoon and tour the Palace. My husband and I are in the western NY area and can be reached at
This one is an art deco beauty! Would like to see it next winter while visiting friends in Mt Dora.
I have toured this 1929 theatre and told about and saw the concrete stilts over the Ohio canal.
Yes, a very cool picture from times past!
This theatre is marked as closed and it has been demolished.
The 2011 Tony Award Show is coming from the Beacon tonight and it is an awesome theatre..thanks to the television crew for featuring its beauty with their wide angle shots.
And Dansville is the original home of Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross.
With the plans for a Winter Garden plaza by the JRC (Jamestown Renissance Corporation) the former Winter Garden will be remembered. I have suggested to them that an historical plaque be put at the plaza eventually.
Just returned from visiting the Star and can report back that the original chandelier is still hanging from the ceiling in the auditorium! They even had balloons and a birthday cake in the lobby to commemorate the theatre’s opening on this date 90 years ago!
And today this theatre opened on June 4th in 1921…90 years ago! Congratulations!
Is the original chandelier still hanging from the ceiling? Will be passing through that town this weekend though won’t have time for a tour enroute to Conesus Lake.
I hope Mount Dora gets their Princess Theatre back someday. I plan to call Main Street Leasing that is now located at the former theatre site and speak with someone about my concerns.
Richard: Thank you for your kind words and I hope to visit your community someday.
Chuck: These former Mooresville theatres should be on CT. If anyone knows information, please add these names. Thanks.
It’s where the senior center is located now.
The former Princess Theatre is now owned by Main Street Leasing. The number is 352-735-0334 if you want to inquire about returning it to the Princess Theatre again!
Looking forward to the relaunch and how it will look and “feel”.
Unfortunately, this show had to be canceled but you can still see this fantastic disco sound group perform on the floating stage in Bemus Point NY on September 4th with fireworks after the show. Bemus Point is on Chautauqua Lake in western New York State. Go to www.bemusbaypops.com for more details.
