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!!!!
Joe: If you find the Boxoffice Grand drawings and photos of Michael DeAngelis, etc. please send to
Joe Vogel: Could you help me find the Boxoffice magazine article about the Grand Theatre again? I went to the link and wasn’t able to find it. Help!
And who is responsible for “twinning” this theatre and then making the balcony a third auditorium??
“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!
