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.
Uploaded historical photos from the Puget Sound Theatre Organ Society site.
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.

Very similar photo to the one linked by Joe Vogel, sans people, from the collection of the West Virginia State Archives uploaded.
Uploaded two exterior and one interior photo. Note: name should be Capitol Center for the Arts.
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 façade 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……..
