Yep, looks like 2 or 3 entrances to the building. Sun Realty is listed in some places as 206 or 206B N. Main St. So they could be the central entrance, the left side entrance looks like it goes up some steps first. My guess is there are at least 2 business at this address. Not sure where 282 N. Main St. above refers to.

The reason for the name, more than likely, was due to it being in a suburb called Arlington Heights, just West of Fort Worth.

Yes, I remember when this theater was torn down when they were widening the freeway. There was quite a few buildings in that side of the freeway that are now gone. If I can find it, I still have a piece of the blueish tile that was part of the facade of the building.

To get the map link at the top of the page to work, change the spelling of the highway to Asheville.

My point was the map link above was pointing to Guyman, OK, which does not exist. Guymon, OK does exist. It’s fixed now, so the point is moot!

This is likely the site, due to the shape of the lot….

Map link doesn’t work. Supposed to be Guymon, OK instead.

At least 72 films were filmed in Las Vegas, NM to date. I just spotted the theater in Red Dawn.

Looking through Google Maps, business locations, and Street View, the address should be 101 E. Bridge Street. Land Bank is 105, Edward Jones is 103….

Can’t quite make out the marquee, but something’s Coming Soon…

Off Hwy 516 and Bronco Lane North of Beeville. Another case of Broncho versus Bronco.

If you click on the map link at the top, add another l to the word Marshal to make it work. Town is Marshall

Sorry guys, stopped by today right after 4:00, waited until close to 5:00. Never got in, no one was around… Maybe some other time.

Silicon Sam commented about Main Street Cinemas 1 & 2 on May 31, 2009 at 12:37 pm

Almost next door is Maurice’s which is 302 Main St. Joan’s Hallmark is listed as 310 Main St. But they’re on opposite sides of the street. Which would make the Snyder 311 Main St. Which is also listed as the address as The Grand Theatre in Williston. But it’s not, it’s actually a block away.

Google lists the Grand as 311 or 312 or 211 Main St. 211 is more accurate, but Snyder and Grand are on opposite side of the street so 211 Main and 311 Main don’t work. Maybe it does since the US Bank on 202 Main St. is on the same side of the street as Snyder. Joseph’s Ready to Wear is 205 Main St, right next to the Grand.

Confused yet? I am hopping on the motrorcycle and get out of here…

I have to go to San Antonio tomorrow morning, then to Houston, I’ll be driving right by in the afternoon. I’ll stop and take some photos if anyone is interested. Even if you’re not, I’ll take some anyways.

Finally found it on Street View. Around the 346 block of Main St. Nice modern LED marquee too….

One more odd thing… In Street View, if you are dead smack in the intersection that the above map puts you in, there are no street lights in any direction. Just one click in either direction, the street lights reappear.

Street View is odd on this one. Only Hwy 54 is mapped out, but the difference between the Street View and Satellite view is totally different. Street View shows after the tornado, satellite show before. Lots of building are gone…

460 would be closer. The jewelry store next to the old theater is listed as 464 Aultman. The Street View shows a Fantasy Fast Photo in the old theater building, but phone listing a Fantasy location, but on 11th St.

Silicon Sam commented about Uptown Theatre on May 28, 2009 at 11:18 am

Looking at Street View, the entire facade is gone. Just a simple concrete face now, with some windows in the upper floor. Wonder if those were just covered up when the porcelain facade was installed?

Silicon Sam commented about Palace Theatre on May 27, 2009 at 10:57 pm

Still shows up in Street View, but in the 500 block of W 8th St. Looks like 2 story building next door was torn down first, it does not show up in the view.
