The United has been sold. Close to $1 million worth of renovations are expected to take place before it reopens as a combination cinema/live theatre.

Roger Katz commented about Did Any Of These Boston Theatres Show Movies? on Apr 6, 2005 at 9:05 pm

Check on CinemaTour.com – any Boston theatres listed there showed movies (I edited the Boston listings there and verified any listed had actually showed films.)

Roger Katz commented about State Cinema on Apr 6, 2005 at 11:51 am

The plan to show art films has been abandoned along with plans for two more screens. The State Cinema is – and will remain – a twin showing sub-run.

McElfatrick designed the interior while Vance designed the exterior.

Actually http://www.twoboots.com/pioneer/ gets you to the main page of the Pioneer Theater rather than the theater info page.

Roger Katz commented about Cameo Theater on Mar 14, 2005 at 11:50 am

That article says the Cameo closed in the early-80’s which is obviously false. If you look at my photos at http://www.cinematour.com/tour.php?db=us&id=7164 you will see a movie poster still displayed there for a film that, according to IMDb, was released in late 1995.

Roger Katz commented about Theaters Listed for Sale on the Web on Feb 21, 2005 at 2:45 pm

If you want it updated feel free to go right ahead and do the research required. I don’t have the time right now to put together another listing. Many of the theatres above still appear to be for sale. The Madison in Albany is only asking $399,000 now.

Back in 1909 ALL cinemas were one screen.

Roger Katz commented about Lyceum Theater on Feb 8, 2005 at 12:49 pm

I drove by this building after I went to the Danbury Trashers game on Sunday. It really does not look like a theatre. if there was a theatre in here it must’ve been of the storerfront variety.

Roger Katz commented about Fine Arts Theater on Feb 7, 2005 at 1:39 pm

Isn’t the address for this actually 106 Federal Road?

Roger Katz commented about Coronet Theatre Will Close On Feb 10th on Feb 5, 2005 at 12:48 pm

Why are cities still knocking down these movie houses? Haven’t they learned the lessons from all those towns who knocked them down decades ago and wish they had them back? Or the cities who DIDN’T knock them down and are so glad that they didn’t?

Roger Katz commented about Carmike Bloomfield on Feb 3, 2005 at 8:30 pm

Also, it opened in 1996, not 1999.

Roger Katz commented about Carmike Bloomfield on Feb 3, 2005 at 8:30 pm

It is in the Wintonbury Mall (there’s a spelling mistake in the listing above.) Chain is entertainment Cinemas.

Roger Katz
Roger Katz commented about Entertainment Cinemas Seymour Cinema 12 on Feb 3, 2005 at 8:29 pm

The chain should be listed as Entertainment Cinemas.

At 20 screens, this is the largest theatre in Connecticut.

Roger Katz commented about Lyceum Theater on Jan 31, 2005 at 11:44 am

Frequently in that era a theatre that you find was only around for a year or two was one of those old storefront movie theatres. Maybe that was it. I don’t know. I’ll check out the building when I’m in Danbury this coming Sunday.

Roger Katz commented about Lyceum Theater on Jan 31, 2005 at 1:39 am

Did you find any evidence that the Lyceum was a movie theatre? Perhaps it was just a live theatre. In the old city directories movie theatres often were designated as having moving pictures, but not always.

Roger Katz commented about Shaughnessy Theater on Jan 22, 2005 at 8:40 pm

Was this previously a movie theatre under a different name?

This was known as the Norwalk Theatre in its early days.
