Found a 2009 reference that the Redemption church was using the Danville 4 as a temporary home. Three theaters combined for a 300 seat auditorium. Lobby and other auditorium used for other purposes. So it would appear that the additional four auditoriums opened across from the original twin were subsequently thought of as a separate entity. Does that mean that the add on continued after the original twin closed?
I’m confused. This started as a twin. According to rivest 3,4,5&6 were added. So why is this on here as Danville 4 when, at no point, it was never just 4?
Matt do you have any interior photos? I understand there were a number of dressing rooms, too.
At the March 14th meeting the matter of demolition was tabled another month. So what else is new.
Capacity down to 68 by actual count.
Uploaded photo of original facade.
Three photos uploaded.
Uploaded a vintage exterior photo.
Uploaded a 1943 photo by Jesse Crawford found on the Carroll County Historical site.
Time will tell, moviebuff. I’m sure they’re not monitoring Cinema Treasures for suggestions.
Saw an interesting piece on Facebook. During a recent renovation they came upon a wallet that had been lodged in the floorboards. They figured it was there from 1944. Through some detective work they located the owner who was a teen at that time.
The building still stands and is currently being used for storage.
Early photo of the full facade uploaded.
Uploaded a poor quality image of the original Dream Theatre and two ads from that venue. The one headed scenes from yesteryear incorrectly says this theatre burnt down. In reality it was the third theatre to bear this name which burnt. See that site on CT.
Uploaded a newspaper photo of firemen fighting the fire after the marquee had collapsed.
Uploaded a photo of the interior. Must have been some sort of meeting; not a woman or child in sight.
Yes, Joe, the theatre was opened until the fire of April 17th. I have a picture from the Corydon Democrat showing the fire in progress with the marquee on the ground which I’ll have to scan and upload. I, too, have a photo of the theatre showing Comanche Territory from the Democrat which I’ll also upload. Incidentally native son James Best was featured in that movie. I’ll also upload a photo of the interior, an image of the first Dream and a number of newspaper advertisements.
Theater mentioned, but not by name, in a February 21, 2016 Long Island Newsday article about a wartime romance.
I think the whole business of recliners is ridiculous. Just give me a good movie at a reasonable price.
Banners outside the theater proclaim recliners.
dallas, I don’t understand. You can add comments and pictures but not establish a new theater? I am not aware of any restrictive policy.
Dallas you have left a thread dangling. When I went to Frisco to see the followup on the Queen which was to have been opened there using the equipment and signage from this Queen I found nothing.
dallasmovietheaters you have mentioned four theaters in Missouri Valley yet only the Rialto is on Cinema Treasures. Since you seem to know all about them how about putting them on CT. At that time it would be appropriate to put the photo of the Majestic which is on the Rialto site where it belongs.
In the 1937-1939 period there was also an upgrade of the theater adding steel beams to strengthen the balcony, new seats and a new facade and marquee.
