Sorry to hear that, Stan. I used that crossing last year and came back through Sarnia as part of our trip. Never had one bit of trouble either time. Many Michiganders commute to jobs in Canada on a daily basis. Maybe you caught a person having a bad day.

A link will take you to the show times which are on the Newberry Chamber of Commerce website.
David, as a life-long Chicagoan, I can relate to the street name being mangled. Even by folks who live here.
Paul, the Grand Geneva in downtown Lake Geneva is now open again and showing movies.
I’ve added a recent photo of the remodeled façade to the photos section.
Now closed as of Sept 5 2017. Story: http://www.lakegenevanews.net/news/showboat-movie-theater-shuts-down/article_ce02747e-99c8-55db-8435-140df483fea2.html
I added a 1946 picture in the Photos section of this theatre’s marquee. The general rundown condition of the neighborhood is obvious.
I should think it would be safe to say that this theatre has been demolished.
Just added a picture of the new stylized marquee and front of the theater and a picture of an auditorium.
I used to go there as well. I heard the same stories about the landfill or scrapyard.
The online auction of the theatre’s equipment and seating is beginning. After the auction is completed, the theatre will be demolished. Article in Chicago Tribune: http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/highland-park/news/
It was opened in 1916 as the Chicago Municipal Pier. It was named Navy Pier in 1927 in honor of WWI Navy veterans. During WWII, the Navy used it as a training center.
Functions should include: Movies, classic
The proposed multi-million $ development of the Monroe Block might incorporate the façade of the National into one of the new buildings.
I called their phone line and heard a long announcement about how they were now in their second week of being open. Also 2 different movies than what TomMc11 posted. I think they’re open.
Just added a 1938 shot in Photos of the marquee with a Los Angeles streetcar framing the picture.
What appears to be the marquee for this theatre shows up in a couple of scenes in the movie: “The Dark Tower.”
1947 picture added to Photos section.
In the late 40s, my neighborhood theatre wouldn’t allow soda pop in the auditorium. It had to be consumed in the lobby.
1954 pictures added to photos section.
Watched this last night on Amazon Prime. Really goes into the social impact of drive-ins on American culture.
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.
