It worked for me. View link Try copying and pasting that.
Here are my pictures from December 2010.
Here are my shots from January 2011. It’s hard to believe that this place was once a theater.
Here is a picture of the former Tarpon Theatre, taken in February 2011.
This one might have been on the east side of Main Street between 4th and Parker. You can see a ticket booth when you drive down the block with Google Street View.
The angled front door is what gives it away.
This one was at 202 N. Main. The theater’s gone, but the old drug store next door is still standing.
Here are my pictures from February 2011.
Cool. I saw this building last March and I had no idea it was a theater.
Here is my picture from March 2010.
Here is my picture from December 2010. The exterior looks very nice!
Here are my December 2010 pictures of the Ritz. It’s a beautiful building. I only wish that they could’ve kept the old marquee, visible in the 1983 picture.
I received a letter from the local historical society, which stated the following:
“The Roxy Theater was located in the Morqus block, 121-131 W. Oak Street. Our local historian remembers that it was located in the corner building of that block, at the intersection with Monroe Avenue. It was on the southeast corner. We do have a newspaper advertisement for the Roxy Theater from January 23, 1936.”
That cluster of buildings is still standing, though the one directly on the corner is at 133 W. Oak.
According to a lady at the local historical society, the DeSoto was located behind the Rosin Arcade building; this area is now a parking lot. The parking lot is now considered part of the arcade’s property, so determining an address is a little tricky. I’d say it was at about 18-20 S. Polk Avenue.
I can’t seem to get that address to map properly.
Here are my December 2010 pictures of the Capri Theater.
It’s great now that they added 1969 imagery.
I apologize about my link above. It shows the area just north of the Sky-Vue in South Pasadena. This should show the Sundown.
Wow, still visible today to some degree.
Here is a January 2011 picture of the Ritz.
Well, Perry Highway is US 27, or Apalachee Parkway within city limits.
A letter from the local historical society gave the Soto’s address as being the same as the Arcadia Drive-in’s address. I still have a few doubts, but it seems like the Arcadia was once known as the Soto.
I’d been trying to research this one for awhile now. North Florida has dozens of forgotten theaters.
It was at about 4229 NW US 129. Nothing remains.
Roughly 386 Barnes Boulevard. The lot’s still intact with rows and everything, but no structures remain.
Tringas also owned the Tringas Theatre in Fort Walton Beach.
