1960 Picture looks much cooler than the 1980s.No Vertical and cheap looking sign.
Cool site nice pictures.
Great site with lots of good pictures,the most that I have seen on any C.T. site.
Funny stuff, Mike was about 5 then.
This was the 2nd Ben Hur the first one was a silent film, also shown at many Loews Theatres.
Nice old picture of the Imperial. Which one is Mike Rodgers? Ha Ha.Thanks Lost Memory.
The old show-biz saying,Will it play in Peoria.
Was the movie house near the airport???
What no pictures? 1281 cars @ $2.00 a car,if they where full,that was a lot of money back then.
Nice name for a movie house,in England they do not tear the old stuff down like us in the U.S.A.
Address numbers do and can change sometimes!This might lead to some of the confusion in the Google maps.This is rare but it does happen.
Of course they were all new at some time,Lost Memory, I just like their name.If it had been a Loews house it could have been the Loews New.LOL
Looks like someones house.Maybe they sell enough tickets to pay the rent.
The “NEW THEATRE” is not so new. Nice to see that it is still being used instead torn down.Good luck to them.
Cool pictures, not many downtown theatres left anywhere.
Nice pictures, they do not make them like that any more.
Its wild to see that the building is still there after being closed for some time.That the marquee is still there is amazing.Must be in a bad part of town.
Nice pictures, love all that neon, glad to see thats its still up and running.
Cool looking movie house does not look bad to be 70 years old.Bad costumers however is not a new thing, working in the theatre business for Loews in Nashville years ago we had the same problem at horror movies and others.If you show classy movies you get classy customers if you show horror movies you get horror patrons, but as theatre owners know all their money is green.Go to the movies during the week when all the freaks stay home.
The new picture looks much better than the 1982 pic.It may be small but at least its up and running again.
Good to see that it is still being used, and from their website looks real nice,seats over 500 now.
Building looks like a Resturant.
you are right Chuck1231 if the building cannot be used for something else the property it is sitting on is worth a lot itself.
I can give you some good stories about my days working for Loews in Nashville, Tennessee. I started at as a doorman and the Loews Melrose in 1973 @ $1.50 a hour, I ended up working at all 3 houses Loews had there then. I worked my way up the Asst. Manager then Relief Manager and finally up the Manager back at the Loews Melrose were I started.I think my salary was 200.00 a week in 1980.
Wow a brewery where they used to show porno, at least it still an adult business.
