I’ve now found and scanned my pictures of the Times Theater and added them here.
I understand the bank has taken back the theater.
That dimmer would have been for the house lights.
I’ve got some pictures of this theater in my files. Just need to dig them out and scan them.
Any more updates?
What year did Lucy appear at this theater?
All of AaronNi’s photobucket links no longer work.
Looks like this theater had RCA sound system/speakers.
Looks like their original 1.33 ratio screen. Appears all they did to go wide screen was simply paint black upwards and made it a 2:1 ratio. I see speaker posts but no speakers on them. I assume they’ve gone radio sound.
When did they stop using speakrs and make the switch to radio sound? Once they got radio sound, did they start with AM then later switch to FM? Or were they always AM?
Wow, what a fantastic paint job on the screen tower! :)
Wasn’t this the theater that Andy Crow would run 16mm silents on an old Bell & Howell 140 carbon arc projector?
Was Marshall Woodbridge involved with this theater?
I’m assuming they are using radio sound now? I don’t see any speakers on the posts.
What the guy should do is run first run product anyway and let Regal sue them. The resultant bad press from the uproar of the people would force Regal to allow first run there. Another way around it is to say the original “entity” United Artists Theaters no longer exists so this clause is no longer valid.
He passed away in July 2016.
Looks like this theater could use a marquee.
I wonder what will take it’s place?
A local megaplex did the recliners and went from houses that had 150 seats before down to 70 seats after the conversion. Now they have reserved seating only too! And naturally an increase in ticket prices again. All the more reason to stay home in my opinion.
The new seats are now installed. They are electric recliners. The theater also got a remodeling and new carpet throughout the building.
The new electric reclining seats are being installed right now. They are starting with auditoriums 1 through 7 first.
The building is indeed in pretty good condition. If you go down the side alley, the “stage door” is still there.
Wow, that building is in pretty bad shape inside.
Do they still run some 16mm films?
They recently installed new recliner seats in the entire complex.
Andy Crow, well-known Pacific Northwest organist who restored the pipe organ in this theater, passed away a few days ago. The pipe organ has been renamed the “Andy Crow Wurlitzer” in his memory. He will receive a posthumous award later in the year for his many years of playing music for silent movies in this and other theaters.
