“The front facade is art deco at its best.” This is very true as on page 97 of Popcorn Palaces is a painting that shows the facade as described above. What disturbs is the word CLOSED behind the word STATUS! Would love to know the architect who takes the credit for this art deco wonder in KY!

In Popcorn Palaces there is an art deco theatre with curved marquee listed on page 121 called the Glen which also in Glen Ellyn, Illinois at 540 Crescent Boulevard, but it is not this one!

I’ve been inside this theatre when in Watkins Glen for the historical vintage racing weekend. At that time, the theatre features old b/w racing footage! Thank you ‘local resident’ for saving this theatre for many to enjoy on race weekends and throughout the year!

This is featured on page 75 in Popcorn Palaces and is Davis Cone’s favorite art deco popcorn palace in Miami Beach FL.

The Senator is featured on page 81 in Popcorn Palaces.

Patsy commented about Time Theatre on Jan 14, 2005 at 1:42 am

This theatre is one of the art deco theatres featured in Davis Cone’s Popcorn Palaces on page 44. It caught my eye as it has a beautiful Time clock in the center of the marquee which is so unusual! Cone is the art deco painter who resides in Miami Beach FL.

Funny that I would log onto this theatre as my husband’s hometown theatre in Brookville PA (Columbia) had this same ‘backward’ or ‘reverse’ floorplan! I’ve posted about the Columbia, but would like to learn additional history on the Columbia.

Bway: Yes, the lesser of two evils!

Such a shame that this Chicago theatre and the Garrick are no longer with us today as they both were connected with the famous Alder/Sullivan team!

Charles: As you know the Fox in Atlanta was a Shriner’s Temple at one time and has an Arabian Nights interior design! You mention “Phantom” and it would be interesting to know how many cinema members have seen a live “Phantom” performance and where? I saw my live performance at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach FL in June of 1995. Perhaps someone could start a poll with this question?

Lost Memory: I see on your profile you have several drive-ins listed and 2 of them are in Jamestown NY and Dunkirk NY!

I’m for educating our youth, but why this Lamb theatre!?!

Brian: That was my exact thought….why get rid of that seal. Do you know what was on the seal or if there was any wording? After looking at the present day photo it looks like a good job was accomplished in preserving the building, but keeping the seal and perhaps some of the ornate and elaborate exterior design would have been a nice touch!

The photos of this former theatre are fascinating! It had such an ornate facade that has all been removed or covered today!

Brian: Congratulations and good luck with your Warner Theatre research……I will be in touch!

The same here in Charlotte with the building up of center city with restaurants, clubs, sports arena, condo high-rises and the talk of a light rail system, but where is the Carolina Theater in all of this planning? The Carolina is still standing, but still unrestored! One of the major problems is the ‘politics’ involved, etc.

Two years ago I saw Tony Orlando at the Lyric!

Patsy commented about Louisville Palace Theatre on Jan 10, 2005 at 9:30 pm

This theatre is clearly an atmospheric theatre, yet is listed as “unknown” after the word Style!

Patsy commented about Rialto Theatre on Jan 10, 2005 at 9:25 pm

So nice to read about this Eberson-art deco theatre being saved in Texas! It just goes to show that whether they seat thousands or just 542 patrons it doesn’t matter….saved over demolished is the right decision no matter what it takes! Amen! Seth: Old courthouses are an architectural favorite of mine, too along with fire stations and railroad stations!

Jim: Just read your post concerning the art deco exterior and the spanish interior decor as I just couldn’t picture in my mind’s eye a theatre having an art deco/atmospheric interior!

Patsy
Patsy commented about Paramount Theatre Centre and Ballroom on Jan 10, 2005 at 9:07 pm

Haven’t seen too many theatres on this site with both an art deco/atmospheric description so will have to try and visit Anderson IN and see this combined artistic style!

Neo: Thanks for the Riviera photo!

Patsy commented about Riviera Theatre on Jan 10, 2005 at 9:02 pm

Thank goodness the Fox/Detroit was saved, but sorry to read that the Riviera wasn’t and it was an atmospheric-Eberson palace!

“….local officials halted the demolition”! If anyone has current info on this Art Moderne theater, please post here!

Another theatre with the Eberson connection so is worth keeping our eyes on it!
