The opening ad states it opened on 4 Feb 1928.
Architect was Walter E. Kelley.
There are exterior photos of this theatre in the Liebenberg and Kaplan papers at the University of Minnesota library which would indicate they were the architects in 1929.
A website on downtown Oshkosh states that is became the Strand in 1930,Raulf 1953 and Plaza 1968 and was demolished in 1979.The site is now occupied by Mainview Apartments.
Theatre opened 18 Nov 1907.
This theatre is listed in an edition of Motion Picture News as Roxe Theatre and it opened on 25 Sep 1928 with 1250 seats.
This theatre actually opened on 20 Nov 1913.
Tinseltoes I think that design may have been used for the Oriental Theatre in Boston/Mattapan.
Appears to have opened in November 1928.
Located on the corner of Neptuno and Consulado Streets and had 1500 seats.
The photo on this page is not what it says underneath.It is actually Eberson’s Riviera Theatre in Omaha,Nebraska which is now called Rose Blumkin Performing Arts Center.
According to an article in Motion Picture News which includes some interior photos this cinema opened in 1928 and was atmospheric in design.The architect is listed as Enrique Gil Y Castellanos.
This theatre is also listed at the Wolfsonian as an Eberson design with a date of 1947.Perhaps Sornik was an associate.
The Wolfsonian archives in Florida have a date for this theatre of 1965,so Drew Eberson would be the architect as John died in 1954.The Cheltenham Theatre was also Drew Eberson built somewhere between 1960 and 1963.
John Eberson did some remodelling of this theatre around 1913.
According to an article I have just read this theatre opened in 1938.Some time later a fire damaged the building and it was demolished.The Centre Theatre was later built on the site opening on 1 Dec 1944.Can anyone confirm this.
The Centre Theatre opened 1 December 1944.
Theatre opened 23 December 1914.
Theatre opened 15 January 1921 and the Eberson remodel was done in 1939.
Building has recently been sold to developers and it looks like it may be demolished.
I believe the architect was Leon Cubberley.
Architects were Jack Liebenberg and Seeman Kaplan.
This was not a new theatre.Alterations and additions were done to this theatre over a period of ten weeks by John and Drew Eberson.
Found information on this theatre originally opening in 1913 and it closed on 31 Jan 1959.In Feb 1959 it was sold to the First National Bank.
During my recent visit to THS archives in Chicago I found an article confirming W.Scott Dunne as the architect of this theatre.
