Patsy commented about Grand Theatre on Dec 30, 2004 at 10:55 am

Steiner: I also have the Corry Drive-In listed on my favorites page and would like to see a movie there this summer. I know when they have some car cruise-ins at the Wal-Mart in Jamestown NY some of the cars caravan over to Corry to see a flick! Isn’t this cinema site just wonderful! I’ve learned so much about other theaters and met so many nice folks who have the same incurable ‘cinema’ bug which is just so great!

Steiner: Gosh, what a very ‘grand’ surprise to read your email! When I read “my father owned the theatre” I could be seen jumping up and down in the computer chair! :–) I have recently sent letters to the last manager of the Grand, Thomas Tetrault and to a man who was on the demolition committee, but no response from either as yet! So I would dearly love to chat with your father either by phone and/or in person as we spend our summers in the Chautauqua Lake area and frequently travel into Erie. If you notice, a member by the name of Richard G posted about another owner by the name of Dietner who also owned the theater. Does your father know this name as I plan to contact that person, as well this summer. I didn’t realize that the theater was owned by so many different people over the years. I was going to send you a personal email, but I see that you have chosen not to provide that information on your profile page but my email is there so I’ll be anxiously awaiting a ‘grand’ reply! :–)

“The theater has been restored to all of its original beauty.” That is what we all want to read for every theater still standing today!

“You can still tell where the box office used to sit and the current receptionist desk is the concession stand but modified. The brilliant Art Deco curvatures in the ceiling exist as does the domed lobby and brass railings. To the right of the desk is a commissioned letter by, I believe Paramount Studios, that contains well over 50 autographs of then famous stars and directors.” I must go see this for myself!

Ok, Thomas I’ll simmer down, but was just concerned over another former theatre. I have friends from Concord NC and asked them tonight about this former theatre so will check it out for myself sometime. Your quote “Don’t worry downtown Concord will have a renovated theatre soon enough” did interest me though.

Patsy commented about Raymond Theatre on Dec 29, 2004 at 8:12 pm

And Pasadena isn’t far from Hollywood, home to many movie studios whose movies appeared in such theatres as the Raymond so it’s a natural to SAVE THE RAYMOND! They did it in Atlanta with the Fox, so it can be done in Pasadena with the Raymond!

Someone needs to sit down and talk to Gene Buchanan about his plans to reinstitute his 1987 plans to ‘gut the Raymond’! Shame on you Mr. Buchanan!

Pasadena, home to the Rose Bowl Parade but not many old theatres? I watch the parade every year come down Colorado Blvd.

McGee: Found it interesting to read that a resident of S.W. Atlanta HAD possession of the Wurlitzer! I wonder if Larry, organist in residence, at the Fox knows this fact? Also, where is the organ today?

I hope to locate a copy of Popcorn Palaces to see the Loew’s Grand Theatre. Thanks to those who have offered photos of this Atlanta theatre.

Patsy commented about Atlanta's Fox Theatre Celebrating Its 75th Year! on Dec 28, 2004 at 8:25 am

These are great questions and the answers would be of great interest to us all so hope that someone can elaborate on it all. The 2 hour video that was narrated by Hal Holbrook alludes to the GWTW-Fox saga. BTW, I haven’t had time to put my thoughts together on my visit to the Fox for the 75th anniversary open house, but for now I will just say that I met the organizt in residence, Larry Embury and that was a thrill of a lifetime!

This theatre is located in a relatively new area of West Palm Beach called City Place. The interior is opulent, but new.

I’ll be at the open house tomorrow and will be wearing a nametag CINEMATREASURES.ORG with my name beneath PATSY so if anyone sees me, be sure to say hello!

I plan to attend the Fox Theatre open house on December 26th! I plan to wear a nametag that says CINEMA THEATRES.ORG with my name beneath PATSY so look for me as I’d love to meet others who post on our cinema site! I will post my thoughts and experiences here on Monday or Tuesday!

I wouldn’t know this bit of trivia, but think I would prefer red letters over pink letters.

Patsy commented about Happy Holidays From Cinema Treasures! on Dec 24, 2004 at 6:39 am

The Aviator and Beyond the Sea, but for sure Polar Express in 3D! And maybe even National Treasure with Nicolas Cage. And speaking of ‘treasures, I highly recommend Cinema Treasures as Santa has already put it under my Christmas tree this year! I’ll be reading it tonight with a cup of hot cocoa as Santa begins his journey around the world. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all and to all a good night!

Good suggestions, Dwodeyla. Some of the ones I have added don’t have all the pertinent information though I figure someone might know if I, at least, add the theatre name and the location.

I will check out this address site this summer when I’m in the Erie PA area as Wesleyville is a suburb.

Patsy commented about Penn Theater on Dec 23, 2004 at 5:00 pm

Through my research I believe there was Penn Theatre in Titusville, PA.
