robboehm commented about Carousel Megaplex on Jul 18, 2015 at 10:25 am

According to the West Australian Cinema Web, an online service of the Australian Ministry of Motion Picture and Television, Hoyt’s 8 was not destroyed, but rather expanded to the, renamed, 14 screen Carousel Multiplex which official opened on October 28, 1999. Originally there was speculation that up to 24 auditoriums would result.

I confirmed on the Hoyt’s site that 14 is the number of screens.

I have uploaded photos as the Hoyt 8 and the subsequent megaplex from the Web site.

According to the Wikipedia article the Gardens portion closed in 1968 and there was an extensive renovation to the indoor theater. After a fire in the 1970s the theater was restored but closed 9/24/83.

New owners demolished the gardens adding a second auditorium which seated 210. At the time of the reopening the capacity of the original auditorium was 500 for a total of 710.

Found the daytime shot featured on the Denney Architects site. Reasonable to assume they were the architects.

Closing rumored to be related to leasing disagreements. Picture shown is the entrance to the mall not the cinemas themselves.

Ritz Theatre Inc. was formed January 1, 1941. Was the corporation formed subsequent to the opening as the Theatrical Historical Society would imply?

robboehm commented about Erie Movie House on Jul 7, 2015 at 12:42 pm

The Erie Movie House (and eatery) opened November 22, 2014 as an alternative to first run releases. Initial there will be a mix of retro films with the hope that it also will appeal to independent film makers. Initially the venue only shows movies on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings on it’s 16 foot screen. In addition to the stadium seating auditorium there is also a concession stand, four, diner style, booths, a lounge and pinball and board game area.

It can also be rented for small events.

The Wurlitzer organ was reported to have cost $15,000.

I’ve uploaded a picture from NJ.com which shows the theater for the brief period it was the Branford.

Although the theater is nothing more than a box it’s nice to see a traditional marquee and the actual theater name rather than just the chain name.

These theaters have become so impersonal albeit grand.

Given the wool production in the area Angora is not a surprising name. What, or who, were O and S? Street name?

On April 6, 2011 the non-profit Historic Angora Theater Society, Inc. was formed. It’s status has been refreshed as of July 2015. Since it was formed under the arts and humanities umbrella it would seem as though some sort of performing arts center has been envisioned.

The corporation was formed using a PO Box. It would be nice if Billy or Don, who created this entry, could supply the street and address number so an image might be accessed through Google.

When you see a picture of the whole building you think of the temples at Luxor or Karnak
