Ritz Theatre Inc. was formed January 1, 1941. Was the corporation formed subsequent to the opening as the Theatrical Historical Society would imply?

robboehm commented about Erie Movie House on Jul 7, 2015 at 10:42 am

The Erie Movie House (and eatery) opened November 22, 2014 as an alternative to first run releases. Initial there will be a mix of retro films with the hope that it also will appeal to independent film makers. Initially the venue only shows movies on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings on it’s 16 foot screen. In addition to the stadium seating auditorium there is also a concession stand, four, diner style, booths, a lounge and pinball and board game area.

It can also be rented for small events.

The Wurlitzer organ was reported to have cost $15,000.

I’ve uploaded a picture from NJ.com which shows the theater for the brief period it was the Branford.

Although the theater is nothing more than a box it’s nice to see a traditional marquee and the actual theater name rather than just the chain name.

These theaters have become so impersonal albeit grand.

Given the wool production in the area Angora is not a surprising name. What, or who, were O and S? Street name?

On April 6, 2011 the non-profit Historic Angora Theater Society, Inc. was formed. It’s status has been refreshed as of July 2015. Since it was formed under the arts and humanities umbrella it would seem as though some sort of performing arts center has been envisioned.

The corporation was formed using a PO Box. It would be nice if Billy or Don, who created this entry, could supply the street and address number so an image might be accessed through Google.

When you see a picture of the whole building you think of the temples at Luxor or Karnak

robboehm commented about Ogunquit Square Theatre on Jun 28, 2015 at 6:42 pm

So, now that Ron has clarified everything, I’ve uploaded the photo to which I referred as the Ogunquit Playhouse before it became Ogunquit Square. When you compare this photo with the street view you can see that the building to the left has hardly changed.

For anyone wishing to check out the image to which I refer, I did my inquiry at Ogunquit Theater Photos. It was about the 30th image and shows people on the street where a performance by Maude Adams in Twelfth Night is advertised.

Doing some quick research I came upon the Ogunquit Playhouse, which is a long time, live, summer theater. The original location was the one pictured on Shore Road above. I came upon a picture of the original Playhouse, which was a one story building with a brick fa├žade next to a two story, white frame building. This is the spot. The Playhouse has subsequently relocated.

Nowhere in the Playhouse history on their home page do they indicate other than live performances were presented. So……..
