Here is a 1969 view courtesy of Historic Aerials.
Great! We can update the address to 3725 East MLK Boulevard.
The Colquitt Theatre is on North 1st Street. You can’t get a direct view of the theater on Street View since the car didn’t drive down that block, but you can see it from certain angles on other streets.
My pictures show that the theater has undergone some restorations, as the marquee is not present in the Street View images.
Here are my pictures from January 2011.
Here’s a January 2011 picture of the Albany.
Thanks. I’ve been playing around with the site since I left that comment. It’s just hard to get pictures that aren’t blurry when you zoom in.
Great! 3084 US 92.
Excellent find! The address can be updated to 14550 E. Martin Luther King Boulevard.
Are you getting these pictures from a website or something? They’re amazing.
Here are my pictures of the State from January 2011.
Here are my pictures from December 2010.
Here is the former Chief Theater in January 2011. Not much to see, but at least it’s occupied.
1003 Wyoming 789. It’s long gone.
Here’s all that’s left of the Princess. Note the painting on the marquee.
Lassiez-Faire is at 120 Laurens Street NW.
Here is my January 2011 picture of the Graves Drive-in projection booth and snack bar.
I suspect that Perry’s other drive-in was located on the Old Dixie Highway just north of Florida 30, but I have no concrete proof.
I suspect that this was at 1800 Dothan Road. 1993 satellite imagery shows what appears to be rows of car ramps. This lot is now a Kangaroo truck stop.
Here is a December 2010 shot of the Avon.
Here’s a January 2011 shot of what I believe to be the former Havana Theater.
I took a few more pictures of the Leaf today. You’ll notice two separates sets of doors. The doors on the left were for white patrons and led straight into the auditorium, while the doors on the right led black patrons into the balcony.
I suspect that the New Glades was at about 85 Avenue J, which is now a vacant lot. I believe the building that’s to the left of the theater in the picture is still standing.
Well, I made it up to South Boston and poked around Main Street for this theater. I believe I found the old Princess Theater, but its address is 532 Main Street. It was most recently Sobo’s Main Theater, but now it’s Sobo’s Bazaar.
I was able to check this place out back in December. Apparently it’s a twin theater. Admission was $3. It appears to be owned by the same people that own the Cinema 10 in town. The interior was pretty no-frills, but it still retained that small-town theater feel to it. The movie I saw was in the original auditorium. The seats were pretty comfortable and the screen seemed bigger than some of the multiplexes in Tampa. My only complaints were that the projection seemed slightly dark and that they don’t heat the auditorium. Pasco County had a freeze warning that night and I could see my breath inside! I didn’t get to check out the other auditorium, but I can only assume that they expanded into a neighboring building.
From what I could gather, this theater burned down in August 1948. An article in the Miami newspaper dated 8/2/49 states that a new theater would open in Moore Haven on August 18, 51 weeks after the Glades Theater burned down.
This one was south of town on US 29, just south of Memorial Road. There’s a lumber warehouse or something there now. I couldn’t figure out an address, but its coordinates are 34.338772,-82.954872.
Here is my picture from December 2010.
