Congrats to the Victoria!
Just read that you are about an hour north of Utica. Will let you know if we come your way.
pobrien: Nice to see some great interior photos of a theatre that was designed by DeAngelis who also designed by hometown theatre, the Grand in Westfield NY. Unfortunately, the powers to be demolished it in the mid 90’s. I was living in south FL at the time and wasn’t around to help save this art deco cinema treasure. I noticed your screen name being “pobrien” so I assume you are one of the family owners. Keep CT posted on any and all progress. Where is Lowville NY located as I am in Western NYS and would love to visit your area and tour the Lowville Town Hall Theater. In the Fall I hope to visit another DeAngelis designed theatre, the Strand in Brockport NY.
MJM: Sounds good…congrats and good luck. I hope to visit your community and maybe attend the upcoming September meeting.
Bob: I have a former h.s. classmate who lives near Avon so I sent her this CT site and will let her know about the meeting at the village hall. Her name is Sandy.
Bob: A theatre friend confirmed this.
I see that someone by the name of Buddy Creef added this theatre…thanks. Herbert A. Creef Jr. and my father had something in common…..they both owned a fuel oil business.
To the late William C. Cline….thanks!
Ken is in the UK so you’d have to visit England to meet Mr. Roe.
Chuck: Pleased to read that the tassle collection went to THSA.
Ken Roe is a fine CT member and has been so helpful to me over the years of my membership.
Jim Rankin. He was a treasure on Cinema Treasures and I wish we had more like members like him. I had no idea that you were that close to him and that you shared many phone calls along with emails and CT posts. I also didn’t know that he collected tassles from theatre curtains. I wonder where that collection is today? The THSA should acquire it. Are you a THSA member? I plan to join as their magazine, Marquee is a treasure!
I never knew that Michael DeAngelis built a drive-in. Amazing talent. Thanks Joe as I enjoy your posts.
mark: Since Lost is no longer an active CT member I will respond to you on his behalf. The photo he posted that really showed those half moon doors is another great example of his many CT contributions over the years. I have asked him to consider a return to CT, but he has moved on as they say which is our loss.
Adelphi: Great photos of a great atmospheric!
Denny: Good research! Whenever I add a theatre I try to include as much information as I can.
anthony: I have been told that the projectors are now at the Reg Lenna in downtown Jamestown. And that one will be put on display. I hope this is the case. What happened to the vintage candy machine? And, last but not least…..I’d like to see an historical plaque put at the site of the former Winter Garden. This would be a good project for you to promote.
It’s a shame that at least a small section of seats weren’t saved or even auctioned off as I see posts from time to time on CT about theatres needing seats. In the case of a theatre in Gowanda NY prisoners from a local prison are or were restoring the seats for that theatre..at least that is the story that I have heard over the years.
Chuck: What a wonderful photo. The sky was so blue that day! Thanks for posting!
Paul Jones: It sounds like you are in Erie. I’m not far and always jump at the chance to visit the beautiful Warner which has never closed in its long history in Erie.
J Paul: Congrats and continued success!
Irv: You being in FL should venture out towards Arcadia and check out this former theatre, in person!
Irv: The cinematour photos are quite interesting. Any chance it will return to being a cinema?
