It is demolished.
That ad says 300 N Burk but the Google Map capture above clearly puts it at 300 N Denson St.
It was right across the street from the Hub restaurant which was at 138 County Rd 7A so this theatre would have been at approximately 139 County Rd 7A.
Address is 625 Watervliet Shaker Rd.
Address is 23 E Market St. in Red Hook.
The theatre closed in January 2014, not 2012.
It looks like this theatre closed at the end of the 2013 season as its website now only states that it is for sale.
Now reopened as the Medina Theatre.
2803 Brewerton Road is the address. Plans are in the works to demolish the theatre and build a hotel on the site.
It appears this theatre could not afford the upgrade to digital and closed in summer of 2012.
The Strand Theatre in Seymour, Connecticut closed at the end of December. Run properly it could easily turn a profit. A big part of their problem was they were only running three shows per week (Friday and Saturday evening, Sunday afternoon). If they were open all day on Saturday and Sunday and listed showtimes on commonly used services the Strand would make money.
Now known as Silver Screen VII.
This is a screen capture of a photograph I took in 2003 and has been appropriated without my permission.
There is a sign in the window that says “Closed for Renovations” but I don’t believe this is true. I think this theatre is closed permanently. None of the other signs in the window have been updated since October (which must be when the theatre closed). All the posters and standees in the lobby are for movies from back then, the theatre’s Facebook page has disappeared, and the movie hotline phone number just rings and rings.
The Strand has closed as the town has pulled out as the operator. The final movie was “It’s A Wonderful Life” on December 15, 2013. The theatre hosted live community show on December 21, 2013 and is now dark as the Knight of Columbus who own the building ponder its future.
It is true that it does not operate as a theatre in the traditional sense. However, during the summer they show movies once per week on the screen and charge admission. To me that still qualifies as open.
What about adding some kind of link on each theatre’s page that says something like “Make Corrections” which people would be able to click and send corrections (or what they think is a correction) to a Cinema Treasures staff member for review? Then people do not need to make a post about it publicly at all. Also, it streamlines the corrections process. There are theaters I have commented on as being closed or open, for example, that have the incorrect status on here and years later nothing on the page has changed to reflect updated information because no staff member ran across my comment. Adding a corrections link would help in that way as well.
I sit towards the front, about 1/3 of the way from the screen. If I am stuck in a theatre with stadium seating I make sure to sit in the non-stadium part, even if it means being too close to the screen.
jaboschen is right. The lobby building and auditorium both still stand. You can see it on the Google Maps overhead view and street view. Endicott Furniture, as shown in the old photo above, is still next door to the theatre. From the Google Street view you can even see the writing “Concord Theatre” on the sidewalk of the entryway to the former theatre.
The theatre was across from the library. It was demolished. It was wider than the apartment building that is now there,
The cinemas closed in 2011.
I called the drive-in today hoping to find out when they open for the season. Instead I got a recording that their phone number is no longer in service. That is never a good sign. Does anyone know anything?
Definitely better back then. Very few single screen theatres still exist and it is nearly impossible to find one with a balcony anymore. I can’t stand stadium seating because it is so far from the screen, so I typically do not go to any newer cinemas.
This cinema is not closed. It was taken over by City Base Cinema and will eventually become an Alamo Drafthouse.
