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.

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.

A recent story details the success of the Kickstarter campaign to purchase 2 digital projectors. The third one will have to wait for a while. Here’s the link: http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/on-wisconsin-a-community-saves-the-towne/article_21990597-f411-5d31-a50c-95268348d15c.html

Cinematour shows the Central Theatre as an AKA for the Lowell Theater, just up the street. Rotate the street view and you’ll see it down the block.

If this site were about the sexual mores of urban cultures, then OK. I think there is something more prurient afoot here.

Is this theater being expanded? The Google Street View of April 2013 shows quite a bit of construction. There was discussion in 2011 before the Cherokee Planning Board to expand to 6 screens.

Isn’t this the Center Theater? Same address, same street view.
