Orlando & Senosock: We are looking for a volunteer to take control of the news blog, hence no new postings on here for the past few weeks.
When doing a search the default is for currently operating ‘Open’ theatres. To see all theatres click on the ‘All Theatres’ button.
FanaticalAboutOdeon: Your comment actually relates to the former Savoy/Gaumont/Odeon, which has its own page on Cinema Treasures as the Focus Cinema.
The Wadsworth Theatre now has its own page.
HJHill:I have reset the Google Map, if you wish to now set the correct streetview.
wolfgirl500:The information text in the heading is taken from The Billboard, March 21, 1908 edition. It lists nickelodeons across the USA, but is not fully comprehensive, only listing 3 in Youngstown, which I have added pages for on Cinema Treasures, other two being the Edison Theatre and the Luna Theatre.
Anthony L. Vazquez-Hernandez: I have added a page for the original 1903 Orpheum Theatre.
From the film titles this would be February-March 1953.
The Tower Drive-In is listed in the 1952 edition of Theatre Catalog with 200 car capacity operated by Billy King. The Aitkin Drive-In is also listed but no mention of a Fox Drive-In.
In the 1953-1954 edition of Theatre Catalog the Tower Drive-In (now 400 cars( and the Fox Drive-In (600 cars) are listed as being operated by Consolidated Theatre out of Charlotte, NC.
JohnGn: Thanks for the update. The address and Google Street View have been corrected.
AlAlvarez: You may have hit upon something there, but, the Superior Theatre is listed in Film Daily Yearbooks for 1926, 1927, 1928 & 1929 with 600 seats. The Cherokee Theatre is listed in 1926 with 500 seats, In 1927 and 1928 it is listed as the New Regent Theatre (500 seats), but not listed in 1929.
AndrewBarrett: I have now added a page for the Superior Theatre on E. 81st Street.
Having now some access to some more editions of Film Daily Yearbooks, the Barnes Theatre is first listed as open in 1933 (1,300 seats Allerton Avenue and Barnes Avenue). From 1934 – 1940 it is listed as (Closed), then disappears from future listings. Could it only have operated as a movie theatre for 1 year, then went over to live theatre use, or was it ‘mothballed’, never to reopen?
The 1,232-seat Allerton Theatre is listed as open during these years.
NYozoner: The other drive-in in Biscoe was the 220 Drive-In, and I have added a page for it.
Chris1982; I have added a page for the Bell Theatre on W. Madison Street.
The Google Map and Street View have been corrected.
Ed Miller; There is a page for the New Century Theatre as the Central Park Theatre #7049. We would love you to post your photo on that page.
HJHill: The Google Street View and map have been corrected.
Map & street view corrected.
Leicester Square façade.
cine25goer;Sadly, the website I linked for the photo has now gone down. It was not my photo.
Bob, The photograph is incorrect, and should be moved to the Ilford Hippodrome Theatre page. HJHill, can you please repost it? Thanks
The large building in the centre of the photograph is the Ilford Hippodrome Theatre, not the Empire Cinema.
Joe;I made a typo, I have corrected the opening date to 1920.
