I miss have had too much eggnog as I meant CINEMA TREASURES.ORG
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 have now decided to attend the Fox Theatre/Atlanta open house from 1-7 tomorrow December 26th and can’t wait! I plan to wear a nametag that says CINEMA THEATRES. ORG with my name underneath PATSY! Should be fun! I will post my day at the Fox on the Fox Theatre page on Monday or Tuesday!
I wouldn’t know this bit of trivia, but think I would prefer red letters over pink letters.
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.
Through my research I believe there was Penn Theatre in Titusville, PA.
I’m in Waterford each June so will check out this Drive-In which is the “oldest operating drive-in in Erie County”!
Many of these PA towns had theaters with the same names so they must have been part of a chain(s). I do plan to visit my husband’s hometown this summer and check out the former Columbia Theater.
Also enjoyed the photo story as I didn’t know that Jerry Maren went on to become Buster Brown! More neat trivia!
Really enjoyed the Rockefeller letter! Thanks!
Thanks Dorothy from Oz for your interesing RCMH Ringo story! The Wizard of Oz was recently on TV and I just happened to catch the part where Judy G. sings Over the Rainbow…a very special moment in a very special movie!
“There were once lights at every seat so you could read the program.” A very interesting bit of RCMH trivia! Thanks Myron and to all who have contributed their RCMH memories!
Yes, Highlands exudes a small town atmosphere and is a special NC community with (I might add) many Florida tags especially in the summer months!
Now that I’ve found this ‘gem’ I plan to pay it a visit in the near future!
Thanks to the founders of this site as I was thrilled to see that you have posted my Fox comments concerning the 75th anniversary celebration on Dec. 26th along with a wonderful color postcard photo. I hope to attend the event on Sunday!
Will do…for sure! It’s not a matter of IF, but WHEN and this time I will be entering the theatre, too! ;–)
Yes, “a likely story one could say”. I have been to productions at the present Erie Playhouse Erie PA location and didn’t know that “the Erie Playhouse used this theater as its home” at one time.
A former theatre manager would probably know how rare these Norelco AAll 70mm projectors are plus the magnetic stereo sound!
Nice to see an old drive-in theatre still up and running! Congrats to Kerzan’s grandaughter for keeping her grandparent’s dream alive!
Bob Ditt: Yes, the great actor James Stewart is originally from Indiana, PA. I don’t know if there is a festival surrounding his name, but do know that there is one in the town that James Dean is orginally from in the State of Indiana. I don’t recall the town name at the moment though.
Thanks again. We plan to make a trip to the town in June for their annual Laurel Festival where my husband and I met! At this time we will check out the theatre. In fact, several summers ago we did visit the town and during a walk down main street my husband stopped at the theatre and got to see inside (beyond the lobby area)though I didn’t see it as I was, unfortunately, elsewhere.
I wonder what the style was if it, in fact, was a former house or hotel? It is located in the middle of the block and not on a corner.
My husband believes that as you walked to your seat the ceiling got lower thus the “incline” that you walk up to get to the seats.
