Correction: 1976 photo courtesy of Douglas Long.
FYI. I posted a couple photos from the Oskaloosa Memories and History Facebook page. One is the LIFE Magazine photo previously posted 11/29/08, as the original link is dead.
It was mentioned in the Facebook comments that the Rivola marquee is now inside of a local restaurant called Smokey Row, 109 S. Market Street, Oskaloosa Iowa 52577. There is a photo on their website.
I just posted multiple images courtesy of Karen Kay Sisson, who’s family apparently owned the Riverview Auto Theatre located on Highway 50 just West of US1. It opened April 28, 1952.
The theatre name in the Overview should be changed to Riverview Auto Theatre. It was not the Titusville Drive-In.
I found these images on a Facebook page called History and Memories of Brevard County. I am assuming the drive-in was not around for too long. In one of the Facebook comments Karen Kay Sisson is quoted: Mom said she knew the end was near when they started seeing television antennas pop up on homes in IRC!
FYI, there is a Facebook page called “History and Memorabilia | Erie Pennsylvania” that has an photo album titled “Warner Theater”. There are many exterior & interior shots, projectors, promos and an extensive history. It is an Open Group, so all the photos are visible.
Just added a 1946 photo courtesy of the History and Memorabilia | Erie Pennsylvania Facebook page.
Apparently the Tivoli Theatre is now also hosting live concerts.
WXRT just announced a John Hiatt show for 02/26/14.
Well, I’ve just been corrected. The White City Amusement Park was the location of the previously named Phoenix Theatre. It was built in 1905, 8 years after the 1893 fair. But likely trying to play off the White City name.
The 63rd & South Park Avenue location is still correct though.
There was also a Phoenix Theatre that was part of the White City at the 1893 World’s Fair, located at 63rd Street and South Park Avenue.
I just added about 5-6 photos, all courtesy of the Vintage St. Louis Facebook page.
I just added a circa 1962 exterior photo of the Empress as The Nation Of God Temple. Photo courtesy of the Vintage St. Louis Facebook page.
I just posted a 1946 photo of the Osage, courtesy of the Vintage St. Louis Facebook page.
There was a Lakewood Drive-In in Jeffersonville Indiana, that does not have a Cinema Treasures page. Is it possible that it was this theater first?
There are images of posters and tickets on a Clark County Facebook page I can post here, if it is indeed the same. If not, should I add Lakewood Drive-In as a theater?
“Theater” spelling should be changed to “Theatre”, based on an image of vintage tickets I posted. Image courtesy of Leslie Logsdon via Facebook.

Last correction. The Grand Theatre fire must have happened in 1928, not 1927. I just added a much nicer photo of the Grand Theatre with Richard Dix “Easy Come Easy Go” on the marquee. Which was released 04/21/28.
OK, Update & Correction. The Grand Theatre burned down in 1927. The Paramount was built in 1928, and was renamed the Paradise sometime after 1933.
I added a program and exterior image from that year for the Paramount, to the photos section.
Update/Correction: The Grand burned down in 1927. The Paramount was built on the same site. The Paramount was renamed the Paradise some time after 1933.
I just added a 1920’s photo of the Grand Theatre, which preceded the Paradise on the same site. The Grand Theatre burned down in 1927, according to a 2004 article in the Faribault Daily News. The article also mentioned a poured concrete foundation for the Paradise. To avoid the same fate as the Grand. It is probably not necessary to create a separate page for the Grand Theatre. As the address was the same as the Paradise. But the name should be added as past names. I found the photo on a Facebook page called “You know you grew up in Faribault when…”
I credited Brian Schmidt who posted the photo.
Photo loaded twice due to CT error.
I’ve added some more images to the Photos Section.
One is of the Rhumba Casino that preceded the Shangri-La Restaurant, but in the same building.
I just added a mid `30’s photo of the Booth Theater, which is the same building the current State Theater is in. Booth Theater should be added as the previous name to the State’s Overview.
Interesting that the giant ball signage spells out BOWLING in the circa 1940 photo, and TOWER in the late `40’s photo I just posted.
It is identified on the right in the 1940 photo, but I believe it is on the left. Did the bowling alley convert into the Tower Theater?
I just added a 1948 photo of the Rialto, courtesy of the Lincoln Land Facebook page.
I just added a 1952 photo of the Campus Theater.
Just posted a 1934 poster for the Sutton Theatre.
Spelling should be changed from “Theater” to “Theatre” in the Overview description.
