Nice to learn that two chandeliers in the Des Peres Cinema are identified with a plaque on the wall…music to my ears!
Nice to know it is still intact since it is the original design by DeAngelis.
Do wish the photo with this theatre featured the Carrara glass exterior on a bright sunny day without the highway barrels.
So sad that this theatre has been closed yet again and this time due to back taxes.
2013McCormack: I do tend to agree.
Nice to learn through a few recent posts that this theatre may be returned to its former life as a theatre and not a night club. Sorry to learn that the floor was leveled though. Is there anyone who could give me a tour as I and my husband will be passing through the Bluefield area on November 10 of this year?
Came upon this art deco gem by accident…trying to find a theatre in California by the name of REDMOND. It was featured in the movie, First Daughter.
Such sweet news! Congrats!
Thanks for posting the above links! Aloha!
Very good news! When in Charlotte next, must go see any and all progress!
Good news though I shall miss the reels which “belong” to these types of theatres from a bygone era.
This theatre is truly a cinema treasure and I applaud the citizens of Fowler, Indiana for saving and restoring this treasured gem. If I ever get to Indiana, I will have to visit this one!
Perhaps some exist…..good luck!
Welcome GreenMan415…..it is great to read another DeAngelis family related post.
DeAngelis Apprentice: So exciting to read your comment relating to Michael DeAngelis…..thank you for sharing your memories with us. An earlier post from another CT member talked about the many blueprints…hope to learn more about all of the man’s blueprints. His grandson, Mark has posted on CT in the past. Please email me at
Thank you for this information about the Lake….wish it were still with us. As quaint a town as Canandaigua is it should have a quaint and orginal theatre like it once had!
Did not mention the sorely missed CT member…Lost Memory. May our prayers be with the people effected by this latest monster storm.
Amazing to see the almost immediate posts on CT and this theatre. Viewed the auditorium photos by former and sorely missed CT member and it brought tears to my eyes.
Anyone in the Carlisle PA area should see this film.
I just rec’d a THSA (Theatre Historical Society of America) email telling me that this theatre will premiere a short story movie entitled Palace on May 5th.
Sorry to read “was limited by a lack of funds and public support” as it is important to “make civic use of this beautiful piece of Mount Morris history”.
Hope to see this Warner in person this summer!
Joe: Great post! American Seating Company provided seats for many theatres including my hometown theatre!
When theatres like the Dayton came down in the 70’s for most likely Urban Renewal didn’t the folks of these communities ever think they would need or want a place to show movies, plays and musicals? They had this theatre and then let it be demolished for “an empty lot used for parking”.
Thanks to Ken Roe in the UK he directed my steps to the Loews Dayton Theatre only to read that this theatre is gone and that “the site remains an empty lot used for parking”. So sad and so shameful that Dayton no longer has this treasured cinema!
