Trolleyguy commented about Superior Value Cinema on Jun 6, 2014 at 2:26 pm

Now known as Superior Value Cinema, because it is a 2nd-run house. Most likely due to the proximity of the first-run Duluth Cinema in the Canal Park section of downtown Duluth.

It’s now 2014. Has the theater been brought back to life yet?

Trolleyguy commented about Tiny Texas movie theater asks for help to convert on May 24, 2014 at 6:46 am

The news article mentions that they will also be installing a new screen and making overall improvements to the location. That can eat up a lot of money very quickly.

Trolleyguy commented about Patio Theatre on May 6, 2014 at 6:09 am

In this part of the city, the trend has been to take major intersection corner properties and convert them to either Walgreens or CVS stores. Maybe the Patio owner has been offered a deal to good to refuse?

On Friday, May 2, Marcus announced the breaking of ground for the new theater complex in nearby Sun Prairie. This should mean the end for the Eastgate once the new complex is open.

Is this theatre a twin screen? The marquee shows #s 1&2.

The website only details funding efforts and the phone goes to voice mail. Is this place really open?

There is a brief glimpse of the marquee in the 1977 film “The Gauntlet.” Clint Eastwood is in an ambulance escorting a prisoner to the airport as it passes the Fremont.

This theater is prominently featured in first part of the new film “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.” The auditorium shots may have been filmed in a studio, though.

Trolleyguy commented about Frost Theatre on Jan 5, 2014 at 6:47 am

According to the Corsicana Daily Sun of 11/20/12, this former theater is located at 116 N Garitty. It is now home to the Frost Heritage Center.

The article gave some history of the site:

“The first business in that site was Beene Bros. Furniture and Undertakers, which sold caskets 24-hours a day, and was converted into the theater in the 1940s. When that closed in the 1960s, it housed “The Purple Radish,” a kind of dance hang-out for the high school crowd. It has since been an antique store, a video rental store, and a private home.”

Trolleyguy commented about Strand Theater on Dec 19, 2013 at 7:40 pm

As evidenced by the interior picture, there is really nothing left to suggest it was a movie theater at one time. The exterior has been wonderfully restored, though.

On a recent trip to Key West, we went to this theatre. We sat in the old main auditorium, which is now theater 4. Well appointed and comfortable.
