I have called this theatre’s box office manager and hope to receive a tour this winter. This theatre is just around the corner from the famous Woolworth sit-in of the 60’s which is another stop while in Greensboro.

That would be great as it has set unused for quite some time.

Curtis McCrary of the Rialto Theatre held a a special vigil in honor of Gabrielle Giffords, John Roll and the other victims of the recent shooting in Tucson AZ tonight at 7:30. The marquee gave a message of hope to their Gabby.

I just learned of this theatre through a former Toledo resident. You can hear a fascinating balcony story by clicking on this youtube link.

jaybird21: Sorry to hear that the vitrolite is gone. It’s a shame that I didn’t know the name of a man in St. Louis (back then) who does repair vitrolite across the country/ What is the status with this Mr. Penner and his ownership of The Stage? My email is as I’d like to talk further about this theatre and your meeting with Frank. So glad that you got to meet him!!

Would like to see the stone facade taken off as the original Vitrolite is probably still there!

jaybird21: I just posted a comment in the Weeks Funeral guest book for Frank Versage. Please read what I wrote and add your comments if you wish as I’m sure the family would appreciate it.

This theatre was quite ornate for a DeAngelis design. And to think it is now an “empty plot”.

Joe Vogel: I looked at the Boxoffice Feb. 21, 1942 issue and couldn’t find the Colonial article with photo though I did find the Colonial article in the April 26, 1941 issue. Thanks for the Boxoffice website information as I visit it often now.

After comparing a photo of this theatre in Box Office Magazine I also see that an exterior art piece was either removed or covered over. Hope this theatre is open now.

lyndawilsonsmith: Since you don’t have a contact email provided on your profile page, I hope you see this post as I have interest in learning more about your grandfather, Oscar Glas. He did work for the Farman Theatre in Warsaw NY that was later named the Warsaw Cinema and now The Stage listed on CT.

I just sent an email to journalist, Matt Surtel who wrote the Daily News Online articles. I wanted him to know how much I enjoyed reading about Frank Versage and his longtime dedication to the Warsaw Cinema and to all of the kids who walked through its front doors.

I just found several Daily News Online stories about The Stage and hope it continues to operate as it is a true ‘cinema treasure’ for the community. The art deco auditorium murals, alone, are a very special part of its interior plus the fact that is a DeAngelis designed theatre still intact and open!

jaybird21: Thanks so very much for the information on Frank Versage and the article about him. I was pleased to read that you had the pleasure of meeting him and to hear his great theatre stories.

Mr. DeAngelis would be very pleased! Wish my hometown could have saved the Grand Theatre also built by DeAngelis! Let the show begin!

jaybird21: Good news! I visited that town this past Fall and though I wasn’t given a tour I did see the theatre! It has beautiful art deco work on the walls and I thought then it was certainly worth saving for this community. Someone must have read my mind or seen me milling about the marquee. Happy Holidays to you and to The Stage.

I recently learned of this theatre and its monumental relocation! Congrats to those who saved it by moving it.

Interesting that you were last week. I was there in October. Spoke to some locals about the restored ‘facade only’ restoration.

Are there any interior photos available?
