Trolleyguy commented about Why Movie Theaters Originally Banned Popcorn on Jul 7, 2017 at 7:25 am

In the late 40s, my neighborhood theatre wouldn’t allow soda pop in the auditorium. It had to be consumed in the lobby.

Watched this last night on Amazon Prime. Really goes into the social impact of drive-ins on American culture.

Trolleyguy commented about Fay's Twin Cinema on Jun 22, 2017 at 6:14 am

From the website, how this theatre got its name: The cinema is named after Mrs Fay Howard, late wife of cinema owner Don Howard. Fay had died suddenly earlier in 1982, and Fay’s Twin was built in tribute to their shared vision of a brand new cinema complex for Taree. :

That is correct. It is in the original area where the gold rush started in California. This city was known by several different names, including Old Dry Diggings and Hangtown before officially becoming Placerville in 1854.

Trolleyguy commented about Flyway Minema on Jun 6, 2017 at 3:01 pm

The Pepin Chamber of Commerce informed me that the theatre is definitely closed. They believe that the group running it is either dissolving or reorganizing. The word “Fly” represents fly fishing lures. Status should be closed.

Nice and good news for symphony goers. Still doesn’t bring movies back to downtown Milwaukee. Not even an art theatre.

I think this place is closed. The website has not been updated, nothing current of Facebook page, and the phone is disconnected. Google Street View of October 2016 shows a hearing aid store at that address. There is some indication on the website that they are moving into a new location.

Trolleyguy commented about Super Saver Cinemas 8 on May 27, 2017 at 7:58 am

In the grand opening ad, one of the films is the Hunt for Red October. As this was released in the US on March 2, 1990, by July 13 it would have been in second-run status.

I also don’t believe that photo is of the Grand. Look at the current pictures and you will see the mounts for chains to support an over the sidewalk marquee.
