The status of this cinema should be changed. It was demolished in 2002.

Roger Katz commented about Thomaston Opera House Receives Grant on Jan 30, 2004 at 8:03 pm

If anyone out there has any old photos of the interior please let the Opera House people know. So far no one has been able to find any photos anywhere!

This theatre was shut down for code violations in the mid-70’s and has not been used since. Photos of the interior are at View link .

Ooh! This theatre is less than 90 minutes from my house. I’d love to drop by sometime to see and photograph the wonderful restoration that has taken place!

Roger Katz commented about Berkshire Music Hall to Open This Spring on Jan 30, 2004 at 3:52 am

I didn’t include photos of the not-so-flattering details (e.g. the peeling walls, the sagging ceilings, and the holes in the floors)!

Roger Katz commented about Berkshire Music Hall to Open This Spring on Jan 30, 2004 at 3:35 am

There is no way this theatre will be reopened by June. I have been in a few theatres that were renovating, and this one is in far too dilapidated a condition to be fixed up so quickly. I’d guess that it will open at least 6 months behind schedule.

Roger Katz commented about Community Theater on Jan 25, 2004 at 2:43 am

What are you smoking? The Community Theatre Foundation faithfully updates their listings in every major newspaper and in all the online movie listing guides. They also have a phone number with a recording telling you the showtimes. They are a community-owned, non-profit, second run/art cinema. Having a website of their own may not be feasible, but you have to be intentionally ignorant not to come across their showtimes.

The Opera House is going to get a complete renovation over every square inch of the facility during the next few years that could cost up to $3 million. Its official website is http://www.thomastonoperahouse.org/

Who ever heard of a symphony concert hall that seats less than 300 people?

Roger Katz commented about Loew's Jersey Theatre on Jan 23, 2004 at 2:19 am

No, Michael, it would not. It would be a tragedy to waste a beautiful movie theatre such as this on concerts. It needs to remain a cinema.

Roger Katz commented about Avon Theatre Film Center on Jan 21, 2004 at 2:10 am

I was in the Avon yesterday to watch some screenings of 35mm trailers and 16mm films as the final touches were put on the theatre. It is absolutely amazing inside following a $1 million renovation. It is the most well-restored classic movie house that still screens films that I have ever been inside. After it officially reopens if you are anywhere in the vicinty you should come take a look at the Avon!

The textile company that uses the auditorium has proposed demolition of the marquee and lobby since it is unused and falling down.

Roger Katz commented about State Cinema on Jan 17, 2004 at 1:25 pm

The State Cinema is adding 3 more screens. The current auditorium will not be sliced up. The new screens will be added in other parts of the building. While the main auditorium will continue to show second run features at a discount price, the plan for the new theatres is first run art films.

Roger Katz commented about Plaza Theater on Jan 17, 2004 at 1:23 pm

It is a tragedy that no one has reopened this theatre. I have been inside and it is still in great shape, even though it is dirty. It would not take an extraordinary amount of money to get the Plaza up and running again. Other issues do exist, though. Apparently the landlord will not lease the space, for he will only sell the entire building with storefronts and apartments for over $700,000. Also “environmental problems” exist in the basement and clean-up costs can run high.

Before it’s demolition this theatre was on the National Register of Historic Places.

Roger Katz commented about Palace Theatre on Jan 17, 2004 at 1:20 pm

There are holes in the ceiling that have let decay take a foothold inside. The theatre is in such bad shape that it would take many millions of dollars to restore, and that is unlikely to happen.
