What a beautiful Theatre, can’t wait see visit sometime……I was watching the movie “Backdraft” with Kurt Russel the other day. Does anyone know the Theatre they featured in it? It was about half way through the picture and the scene was of the firemen mopping up from a fire and throwing seats from the baalcony.

One thing to keep in mind, this Miriam Fisch from Illinois IS a politician…..I find it hard to believe she all of a sudden has developed a crusade against movie theater advertisement….She is looking for publicity and nothing else…..whenever her hidden agenda is accomplished, you will not hear another thing about this…..If she had any true conviction, maybe she should look at the oppressive booking practices of the studios….kind of reminds you of block bookings from yester years…..remember…how do you tell if a politician is telling a lie…there lips are moving.

We don’t have a problem seeing the ads….we never seem to be able to get inside the theater before the lights are dim…..I do agree with others…we are bombarded with advertisements all the time, if I am dropping $60 to $70 for a movie and day old popcorn, I sure as hell do not want to sit through advertisements….Now that said, I do not mind the slide shows before the movie that features movie trivia and advertisements for say local little league baseball or a local school fundraisers. What do you think??

I just watched “The last Action Hero” with Arnold Swartzeneger, does anyone know what old Movie Palace was used in the film?

What ia great place to see a movie, I saw the incredibles a few weeks ago with my family, I forgot how nice it was to see a movie on a true big screen. My kids are use to the Danbury screening rooms (I can’t bring myself to call them “Theaters”). They loved the big screen and loved the clouds floating by even more. They also had fun after the show trying to find John Emberson’s trade mark parriot. Well worth the drive to see a movie…or just enjoy this beautiful Theatre.

Very intersting, does anyone have some older picures of the Kon-Tiki they could post on this site, I was very young and have only slight recollections of the Kon-Tiki as it use to be.

Well said Seth, I could not agree more. This is a site for “Classic” movie theaters, not cracker jack box theaters.

I would hardly consider these cracker jack box theaters as “Classic” theaters. They don’t belong on this website.

jon6444 commented about By-Jo Theatre on Oct 10, 2004 at 4:41 am

I took my family here last night to see Shark Tales. What an experience. The Theatre reminds me alot of an old nickeloden. The theatre is rather narrow and long. The interior is simple and untouched by time. But best of all it is very personable. The only staff was I think the Husband, wife and their son. I felt like I was guest in somebodys home, not a movie theatre. Tickets were only $3 and I walked away from the concession stand with a soda and pop corn for only $5. Try to find that at your local megaplex. I recommend to anyone looking to step back in time to visit the By-Jo.

Does anyone have an update on how the restoration is going? Are there any needs for volunteers?

Very interesting link, Where did you get these pictures? I have been looking for interior shots of Keiths, Lowes, Colonial and any other Dayton theaters but have not had much luck.

This is the wrong picture for the RKO Keith’s. This is actualy a picture of the RKO Colonial.
