Uploaded a postcard image showing the Rainbow. One source estimates the theater was operational from the 1930s until 1955.
Ron if the building is still standing could you provide a full address. Maybe Google will pick up the image.
So you’re saying the building for the original Edwards', the former garage/ bicycle shop still exists. When you do get the photos please put them on the proper site. Also if that building does still exist could you furnish the actual address. Also, it would be nice if you could locate some photos from the time it was a theater. As you can see the one I added leaves much to be desired.
Could you post a photo directly to CT?
The new seats cut down seating tremendously; they’re recliners.
Photos uploaded from the Dickenson 16 days.
Uploaded a picture from the Historic Beeville, Tx site. Blurb indicates it was built prior to 1922. No clue, however, as to the specific location.
Couldn’t you incorporate some of this information in the blurb?
Do you have any photos? The one I was able to track down was not too clear.
Regal just announced it’s intention to upgrade this theater to a luxury, first run, destination place.
And, of course, one could always go to the Fantasy in Rockville Centre which many people do now because the Lynbrook is such a dump.
Last thing the area needs is another theater. Merrick, Bellmore, Seaford two multiplexes in Farmingdale. What kind of seating capacity are they talking about – many Regal auditoriums have fewer than 50 seats, albeit big lounge ones.
Nothing currently on the marquee.
Status is renovating? Place is still open and looks more like an abandoned property all the time. If they are going to build a new theater there is no announcement at the site. Could easily build it adjacent to the current building because of the size of the parking lot.
Those center poles don’t do much for sight lines. How bizarre, side by side screens.
Much earlier on I commented the place was a dump. As I read these comments it was even worse than I thought.
Roger, the information in the heading is sketchy, would you have any more and, perhaps, a photo to share.
Tour see the site for the Edwards' on Cinema Treasures. Details the retail origin of the original including the bicycle shop.
astroboy perhaps you could also provide some narrative about the theater for the heading.222
Finally scanned a photo and uploaded it.
Uploaded photo as the Gayety.
Ron, if the Arcadia and Opera House were in Rumford, neither are on CT.
Former employees have embarked on a Kickstarter program to raise $70,000 by September 2nd. $8,000 raised so far. Money for additional digital and seating updates.
Ground lease for the property expires in 2048 and specifies premises must be used as a theater.
Uploaded a photo from the Three Rivers Community of Maine Collection.
Some shots of and in the Milbridge can be seen in the 2005 indy movie The Puffy Chair.
