Patsy commented about Kon-Tiki Theatre Demolished on Jan 10, 2005 at 4:40 pm

So sad that a theatre with South Pacific decor would be demolished. Too bad that someone or some group couldn’t have saved this theatre and it’s soul as all theatres have a soul! Where on the daytondailynews site is the article? Thanks.

Patsy commented about 1891 Fredonia Opera House on Jan 10, 2005 at 4:34 pm

A great overnight stay in Fredonia would be the White Inn located on Main Street and is within walking distance to the Fredonia Opera House. And less than 20 miles to the west on Route 20 is my former hometown art deco theatre, the Grand which “was” located on the corner of Main and N. Portage. There is a small park there now with a statue of Abe Lincoln and Grace Bedell who wrote Lincoln a letter asking him to grow a beard! Nearby is the train station where Lincoln stopped enroute to Washington as he wanted to meet Ms. Grace Bedell, in person! He did!

Patsy commented about Fox Theatre on Jan 10, 2005 at 2:48 pm

Larry: I, for one, so much appreciate you taking the time to include your Fox thoughts on this cinema site. My husband and I truly enjoyed meeting you and Mighty Mo! I recently attended a MTOS dinner/meeting. Our longtime Atlanta friends sent me the Fox 2 hour video during the holidays so we showed that wonderful tape to the Metrolina Theatre Organ Society group and they fell in love with the Fox all over again. In fact, one of the members, Charlie Clayton who is originally from Atlanta and has known Joe Patten and the organist prior to you, Mr. VanCamp for many years so he truly enjoyed the video! So whenever we find ourselves back in Atlanta we’ll come by to share a glass of wine. BTW, we would love to meet the “phantom”, too! God Bless you and God Bless the Fabulous Fox! Happy New Year!

Sadly, “was” in Hawaii!

I had to add this one to my favorites just because IT’S IN HAWAII!

Charles: Made email correction….thanks again for the Riv info!

Very interesting to note that on Valentine’s Day 1989 the Riv became the loving property of the Niagara Frontier Theatre Organ Society! What better group to maintain the theatre and it’s organ than a dedicated organ society! Congratulations!

THANK YOU CHARLES! MUCH APPRECIATED!

Patsy commented about Grand Theatre on Jan 9, 2005 at 9:37 pm

If anyone clicks on the Mapquest location for the Grand it was not north of I-90, but south of the NYS Thurway at the corner of N. Portage and Main Street.

Patsy commented about Grand Theatre on Jan 9, 2005 at 9:21 pm

Must be something to see an ‘atmospheric’ church in Milwaukee WS! This one interests me because of the former Grand name as my hometown theatre was called the Grand, also.

Have a safe trip and when you return please let us know what you saw on your CA theater research trip!

KenRoe: There are many wonderful theatres in the USA, but then again perhaps you only post the ones you have actually visited? Many of mine are those I have never seen, in person, and the rest I have visited (most recently the Fabulous Fox/Atlanta) or hope to in the coming years.

Patsy commented about Avalon Theatre on Jan 9, 2005 at 8:04 pm

sam_e: Funny post! When I read about the Avalon I, too, hear those lyrics and that song in my head! I recall it being “26 miles” also, but then again it seems that lyricists sometimes take special license to rhyme words or in this case….numbers to make them flow better in a song.

Patsy commented about Wiltern Theater on Jan 9, 2005 at 4:02 pm

I just added this one to my favorites as it’s another grand art deco lady!

My husband and I lived in Wichita Falls TX during his USAF years and so we recall going to see movies at the Wichita Theater.

KenRoe: Interesting to read that this theatre is on Catalina Island! Found this theatre while reviewing your favorites and this one is the only one you list in the USA.

Patsy commented about Judy Drive-In on Jan 9, 2005 at 3:45 pm

The car cruises that are held here would be worth attending if you live close to the area and have a neat classic or street rod to drive to this drive-in!

Patsy commented about Tampa Theatre on Jan 9, 2005 at 3:36 pm

Another great theatre that I was recently told about at an organ society dinner party. These ‘atmospheric’ theatres that have been saved and renovated are a jewel to their communities and are such cinema treasures!

Patsy commented about Olympic Theatre at Gusman Center on Jan 9, 2005 at 3:31 pm

Found this theatre though a newly introduced friend and couldn’t believe how utterly beautiful this Eberson ‘atmospheric’ theatre is. I lived in FL for over 30 years and never visited this theatre in Miami as I didn’t know of its existence and didn’t have the theatre ‘bug’ then. Sure wish the Paramount Theatre in Palm Beach FL still existed though. My husband knows the man who bought the Paramount sign many years ago and now wonder if he still has it today??

I would also suggest that you contact someone in your area for help…perhaps an architect who is familiar with building models, to scale. Good luck, Angelgirl.

Patsy commented about Warner Theatre on Jan 8, 2005 at 6:59 pm

A cinema member named KenRoe who is in England has much information on many theatres so he may be of help to you, also.

Angelgirl: I will be attending a theatre group party this evening and will ask around for you although I’m not in the CT area. Always nice to read a post from a young person who has the ‘theatre bug’!

Patsy commented about Carolina Theatre on Jan 7, 2005 at 9:02 pm

Ross: I would like to see the complete Carolina Theatre information included at the top of this page rather than the word ‘unknown’ as most or all of the background information is included in several posts particularly the ones from KenRoe and Charlie C.
