Anyone in the Carlisle PA area should see this film.

I just rec’d a THSA (Theatre Historical Society of America) email telling me that this theatre will premiere a short story movie entitled Palace on May 5th.

Sorry to read “was limited by a lack of funds and public support” as it is important to “make civic use of this beautiful piece of Mount Morris history”.

Joe: Great post! American Seating Company provided seats for many theatres including my hometown theatre!

When theatres like the Dayton came down in the 70’s for most likely Urban Renewal didn’t the folks of these communities ever think they would need or want a place to show movies, plays and musicals? They had this theatre and then let it be demolished for “an empty lot used for parking”.

Thanks to Ken Roe in the UK he directed my steps to the Loews Dayton Theatre only to read that this theatre is gone and that “the site remains an empty lot used for parking”. So sad and so shameful that Dayton no longer has this treasured cinema!

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 the atmospheric feature still intact?

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”.

TexasBob: I have Google Earth on my Smart Phone, but still learning my way around the phone so send me the Google photo of that area via my email () Thanks.

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 1:42 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.

Patsy commented about Carolina Theatre on Feb 10, 2013 at 8:15 am

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.
