DavidZornig commented about State Theater on Apr 4, 2017 at 7:55 am

Just added a late 1960 photo, with “High Time” and “The Enemy General” on the marquee. So it was still operating then. They were released in September & October of 1960.

The current street view shows that it has indeed been replaced by the Alvarez Condominiums now, which I believe is a new structure. Since the auditorium roof line is no longer visible. The small building to it’s left in the 1960 photo, still remains today.

The Florida Theatre’s grand opening was April 8th 1927. It is celebrating it’s 90th anniversary this Saturday with a free Buster Keaton film. Article below also has the timeline of it’s conversion in 1983 to a performing arts center and beyond.

Ran across this 1992 Tribune article about the Oak’s then conversion to a music venue. Further proof on how sadly short that incarnation was to last.

DavidZornig commented about Round-Up Theatre on Apr 1, 2017 at 1:05 pm

It was still the Round-Up Theatre in 1964 and 1970, the dates of the two photos I uploaded. It had become the Round-Up in 1947 when Ted Gamble took it over. With a Westerns only policy and Western themed interior. I have found no record of it returning to the Rex Theatre name.

DavidZornig commented about Times Theatre on Apr 1, 2017 at 7:56 am

I found those two on a Facebook page called Forgotten Oregon. I must have found 10-15 pics of various theatres, and I wasn’t even ¼ of the way through their photos section. I’ve already created 4 new CT pages for missing theatres based on what I’ve found. Still need to make one for the Parkrose when I have time.

I’ve submitted a CT page for the Music Box Theatre next door to the Fox, including Joe Vogel’s information above. As well as additional info I found in a PDF, which I will add with photos once the page is up. For the record it was built in 1924 as the Broadhill Building, and remodeled in 1959 into the Music Box.
