Thanks, LM. I didn’t see a listing on CT.
Was there a Rialto theater in Kewanne, in the 30s -40s?
Neville Brand grew up in Kewanee and must have attended this theater in the 30s before heading off to war
Not at all, since the writer is covering theaters functioning as movie theaters.
TCM’s daily blog focuses today on the Oswald-Texas connection.
Here’s the link:
NYT article on the re-opening.
Easy Mr. Harris. I probably did copy some of yours and I know that you will find many there that you do not “own”.
Imagine me having the nerve to copy a posted image of my childhood theater. I’m disgraced.
Lighten up, we are all in this for one thing, to relive memories. Or so I thought.
Sorry for the confusion. Lost Memory’s link will do it for you.
Hope to hear from folks with memories of the old RKO.
Here is a link to my photobucket album of RKO 23rd St images that I’ve accumulated.
Roxy….I’d be curious as to the Sneak Preview of the “Laugh Riot of 1956” (in Cinemascope), I’m thinking The Girl Can’t Help It with Mansfield.
Thanks, Ross for this wonderful gift.
The gift that keeps on giving.
Heartbreaking photo of the fire in 1960. I was a young lad standing with my dad watching from this angle. The theater had already been shut down, tragic enough without this happening. Note the OPERA sign in the window.
Great post, Sontaran6, no need to apologize whatsoever.
I lived in Woodlawn and became familiar with your “fondly remembered neighborhood house” in the early 70s when it was a $1.00 for a double feature.
Other than the annoying green clock, that you couldn’t help but keep checking, it was a nice, clean, safe theater with excellent programming as I posted earlier.
10 cents for a Kids Matinee in ‘45 would sound right. I remember paying a quarter in the late 50s at my beloved neighborhood house.
Great memories, have a happy one yourself.
And if you headed West (to the left) on Greenwich Ave, across from The Sheridan was the Greenwich theater.
Anyone have any idea when the Terrace closed? I think it was before the RKO 23rd Street closed in 1960. We have AL’s account of the pistol whipping in late ‘57. But nothing after that.
We can only hope it was something soapy.
and, saps, there was no extra charge for the “live” entertainment supplied by an audience on The Deuce.
I remember seeing the rerelease of “PSYCHO” there in ‘64 and the guy in front of me was scarier than Bates.
Weekend NYT article on architect Thomas Lang
The Sheridan in 1932:
This is not the appropriate site for the selling of your product. Cinema Treasures was designed to be a celebration of movie theaters, not the profiteering of theater suppliers. My two cents.
I thought it was the singer, Frankie, that drew the crowds at the Paramount, apparently not…Great shot, RobertR.
$7 million renovation spelled out in today’s Plain Dealer.
Excerpt from 1870 NY Illustrated article in two parts:
The Opera House is just completing a one-year renovation project.
I had the opportunity to tour it recently and the result is stunning to say the least. Of course, always a thrill to see grand old theaters still open and appreciated by a community.
Here’s a link to today’s Herald Tribune with some great photos:
