Ken is in the UK so you’d have to visit England to meet Mr. Roe.
Chuck: Pleased to read that the tassle collection went to THSA.
Ken Roe is a fine CT member and has been so helpful to me over the years of my membership.
Jim Rankin. He was a treasure on Cinema Treasures and I wish we had more like members like him. I had no idea that you were that close to him and that you shared many phone calls along with emails and CT posts. I also didn’t know that he collected tassles from theatre curtains. I wonder where that collection is today? The THSA should acquire it. Are you a THSA member? I plan to join as their magazine, Marquee is a treasure!
I never knew that Michael DeAngelis built a drive-in. Amazing talent. Thanks Joe as I enjoy your posts.
mark: Since Lost is no longer an active CT member I will respond to you on his behalf. The photo he posted that really showed those half moon doors is another great example of his many CT contributions over the years. I have asked him to consider a return to CT, but he has moved on as they say which is our loss.
Adelphi: Great photos of a great atmospheric!
Denny: Good research! Whenever I add a theatre I try to include as much information as I can.
anthony: I have been told that the projectors are now at the Reg Lenna in downtown Jamestown. And that one will be put on display. I hope this is the case. What happened to the vintage candy machine? And, last but not least…..I’d like to see an historical plaque put at the site of the former Winter Garden. This would be a good project for you to promote.
It’s a shame that at least a small section of seats weren’t saved or even auctioned off as I see posts from time to time on CT about theatres needing seats. In the case of a theatre in Gowanda NY prisoners from a local prison are or were restoring the seats for that theatre..at least that is the story that I have heard over the years.
Chuck: What a wonderful photo. The sky was so blue that day! Thanks for posting!
Paul Jones: It sounds like you are in Erie. I’m not far and always jump at the chance to visit the beautiful Warner which has never closed in its long history in Erie.
J Paul: Congrats and continued success!
Irv: You being in FL should venture out towards Arcadia and check out this former theatre, in person!
Irv: The cinematour photos are quite interesting. Any chance it will return to being a cinema?
I don’t have a definitive answer to your question, but will be anxious to read the answer by some fellow CT member. I know the answer has to be out there somewhere. One of my favorite theatres is RCMH. I was in the lobby once, but didn’t take the tour which I regret to this day!
I received 2 CT notices tonight…one was the Garden Theatre in Winter Garden FL and the other was the former Winter Garden Theatre in Jamestown NY.
Merrie: I have yet to meet with one of the men who worked at the WG, but hope to this summer. His name escapes me at the moment, but when I look it up in my theatre file I will let you know via personal email. Again, thanks for becoming a member of CT. Your memories of the WG and it being your “second home” will be a welcome dialogue.
Merrie: Thanks for your personal email and it is wonderful to have you aboard! Welcome!
I’ve visited this theatre and it is a must-see when in Lakeland FL.
The site with artist’s rendering is posted with a Jan 11, 2010 comment.
Chuck: I’ve seen this former cinema and the last I knew it was going to be some sort of art venue/gallery. If I find the website for this concept, I will email. A NC artist friend of mine might know the current status, too.
Irv: Great post!
I would love to see a photo of this theatre by someone/anyone since longtime dedicated CT member, Lost Memory isn’t around to provide it. Thanks.
The home page for CT has the video posted by Ross Melnick about the Roxy and the folks of Langdon ND who love their main street theatre!
