Address need to be updated to 5250 Baltimore Ave.
Car capacity listed at 300.
A duplicate should have never been submitted. The corrections should have been made on this page. Evidently Ken has deleted the Carolina East Centre Cinemas, it is not showing up on CT.
It should be 2 screen with a car capacity of 600. The 60 figure comes from the enclosed building that seats 60 and faces one of the screens for indoor seatingl

I agree there are tons of comments on CT that a perticular movie was seen at a particular theatre, but there are also a lot of movies seen at particular theatres that the comments also have a relexion on the presentation, sound etc which do fall in a historic/informational category.
“Dr. No” was the first Bond film followed by “From Russia With Love”. They were double billed before “Goldfinger” was released. “Goldfinger” was the first blockbuster for the Bond films.
Who is operating the Ritz at this time?
From the street view it looks like they have lighted panels all along the marquee and the neon looks to be in working order on the blades.
They haven’t updated their website as of today.
Was this a small Nickelodeon? If the address is correct, demolished for sure.
Ken needs to change the name in the header to Ritz Theatre.
Friedrich, you need to post a link to your Flickr photos, doing a search on Flickr under friedrich_berlin pulls up nothing.
Playhouse on the Square lists and address of 66 S. Cooper, so if the address for the American is correct they were two different buildings. The Playhouse on the Square may have the capacity for showing films but do not show main stream motion pictures.
“Help” played day and date at the Crestwood and the Loew’s State in Downtown St. Louis.
Joe, I locked in the street view and it looks like the rear of the auditorium was chopped of to make the entrance to the parking lot on W 3rd St. I went down W 4th to N. Division and over N. Division to W. 3rd St. and down to Cedar and W. 3rd St. to locate the former theatre.
Looks like the city of Chicago is out to make money in any manner they can.
Mike, what are we now pushing Facebook on Cinema Treasures?
