Patsy commented about Dayton Theatre on Mar 25, 2013 at 6:28 pm

This theater was mentioned and featured on the Weather Channel this evening, March 25, 2013 re: the flood of 1913. In the still b/w photo one could see the marquee that read DAYTON. Does anyone have historical information regarding this theatre in addition to the information already provided to CT? Thanks.

Yes, send the link to Ross as he would love to see it. And thanks for listing me twice though there is only one of me! Have a great day!

And I wonder who the 2 men are in the photo as they look at the destroyed stage. I hope that at the time they wondered “if” they were doing the right thing! I can anwer that question now in one simple word……NO!

The Plaza demo photo is hard to view though glad to see this once great theatre is included on CT. I have recently learned that the site is now home to an insurance company’s headquarters. Do hope an historical plaque is placed at the location so nobody will ever forget what was once there for theatre and movie goers. And I sincerely hope that there were some residents of Schenectady who opposed the demolition and fought to keep this theatre standing for future generations. Sadly, someone with pen in hand presented the RKO with its final blow and existence.

Do wish former resident..Lou Dobbs would invest in his hometown and theatre.

Is there an update on this theatre and its mighty Wurlitzer? Great 1930 photo with the blade marquee!

TexasBob: Interesting commentary that ends with “those landmarks are gone with the wind”.

Would still like to see photos! If the structure still standing or was it demolished? I recall the town being neare the St. Lawrence Seaway. Our hotel was right in front of it and the next morning a huge freighter came by the hotel property. The owner was a chef and cooked dinner for the guests in the hotel restaurant.

Thanks gentlemen for your informative comments. I have been in contact with the grandson of Michael De Angelis. He has posted on the Stage Theatre CT link and has provided his email address there!

After reading about this theatre on the above boxofficemagazine link I have come to realize that De Angelis was truly ahead of his time! As was another famous and well known architect….Frank Lloyd Wright.

I guess Carrara Glass is similar to Vitrolite.

Patsy commented about Colonial Theater on Feb 11, 2013 at 3:42 pm

It is a shame that the Colonial is now a bank, but more importantly that its beautiful interior was changed “back then”…in the “boxofficemagazine” article one can see the elegant interior with the corner organ!

And I just viewed the Scotty Moore link! I had never seen an overhead view of that property and the theatre/stage in proxmity to the neighboring buildings! Would love to see the original facade replaced as it was all numbered when it was disassembled.

I walked by the Carolina Theatre corner just last night and saw a lovely small park setting in front of the former theatre. The most recent news in the Charlotte Observer this a.m. is very welcome news to all who hope to see this theatre restored and given back to the citizens of Charlotte!

Hard to believe this theatre was closed in 1954. It should have never closed in this quaint lake village.

The grandson of Michael DeAngelis, Mark DeAngelis became a CT member today, Jan. 31 2013. He posted on the Stage/Warsaw NY link. Join me in welcoming him to Cinema Treasures!

Again, this theatre should SADLY be noted as demolished.

Patsy commented about Paramount Theatre on Jan 31, 2013 at 8:22 pm

“The most ironic thing about the Paramount/Piccadilly’s demolition is that the city is now attempting to construct a performing arts center on the exact same site!”

If anyone knows…post what is at the former theatre main street location now. Thanks.

I was in Canandaigua this past summer. Had I done my homework and realized that this town had a theatre designed by Michael DeAngelis I would have inquired about it and its location! A return trip is now in order!

Here is the list of DeAngelis designed theatres for anyone such as myself who is interested in the list of 31 with only 6 open today! I think the theatre in Batavia NY is now a church. Interesting that Michael designed a theatre in Florida which still has to this day…alot of art deco buildings such as the hotels done in pastel colors on South Beach.

Mark! Let me be the first to welcome you to CT. It is a pleasure to have the grandson of Michael DeAngelis among us. I hope that you honor us with many DeAngelis posts regarding this theatre designed by your grandfather along with the other DeAngelis designed theatres listed on CT. Again, a huge WELCOME!
