Trolleyguy commented about Patio Theatre on May 6, 2014 at 6:09 am

In this part of the city, the trend has been to take major intersection corner properties and convert them to either Walgreens or CVS stores. Maybe the Patio owner has been offered a deal to good to refuse?

On Friday, May 2, Marcus announced the breaking of ground for the new theater complex in nearby Sun Prairie. This should mean the end for the Eastgate once the new complex is open.

Is this theatre a twin screen? The marquee shows #s 1&2.

The website only details funding efforts and the phone goes to voice mail. Is this place really open?

There is a brief glimpse of the marquee in the 1977 film “The Gauntlet.” Clint Eastwood is in an ambulance escorting a prisoner to the airport as it passes the Fremont.

This theater is prominently featured in first part of the new film “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.” The auditorium shots may have been filmed in a studio, though.

Trolleyguy commented about Frost Theatre on Jan 5, 2014 at 6:47 am

According to the Corsicana Daily Sun of 11/20/12, this former theater is located at 116 N Garitty. It is now home to the Frost Heritage Center.

The article gave some history of the site:

“The first business in that site was Beene Bros. Furniture and Undertakers, which sold caskets 24-hours a day, and was converted into the theater in the 1940s. When that closed in the 1960s, it housed “The Purple Radish,” a kind of dance hang-out for the high school crowd. It has since been an antique store, a video rental store, and a private home.”

As evidenced by the interior picture, there is really nothing left to suggest it was a movie theater at one time. The exterior has been wonderfully restored, though.

On a recent trip to Key West, we went to this theatre. We sat in the old main auditorium, which is now theater 4. Well appointed and comfortable.

Trolleyguy commented about Twilight Theatre on Nov 21, 2013 at 7:57 am

The History Channel show “American Pickers” was set in Greensburg last night. (11/20/813). The guys were in a warehouse filled with items from the tornado’s aftermath that were going to be auctioned. Two 35mm projectors and lamp houses from the Twilight Theater were shown, as well as an exterior photo. They were expected to bring $500 each at auction.

Trolleyguy commented about Strand Theatre on Nov 12, 2013 at 6:16 pm

Go to Google Streetview and look at the florist shop at 354 Simcoe Street in downtown Beaverton. The details on the upper windows are a match for the first theatre picture of the exterior. It truly appears to be a theatre which predates 1940.

The Strand on Mara Road was built in 1940 and has its own Facebook page.

Streetview was way off. Address is 420 Roberts Drive, not Street. It has now been corrected. According to film listings the website, this theatre seems to be screening public domain DVDs using a DVD projector.
