Nothing currently on the marquee.
Status is renovating? Place is still open and looks more like an abandoned property all the time. If they are going to build a new theater there is no announcement at the site. Could easily build it adjacent to the current building because of the size of the parking lot.
Those center poles don’t do much for sight lines. How bizarre, side by side screens.
Much earlier on I commented the place was a dump. As I read these comments it was even worse than I thought.
Roger, the information in the heading is sketchy, would you have any more and, perhaps, a photo to share.
Tour see the site for the Edwards' on Cinema Treasures. Details the retail origin of the original including the bicycle shop.
astroboy perhaps you could also provide some narrative about the theater for the heading.222
Finally scanned a photo and uploaded it.
Uploaded photo as the Gayety.
Ron, if the Arcadia and Opera House were in Rumford, neither are on CT.
Former employees have embarked on a Kickstarter program to raise $70,000 by September 2nd. $8,000 raised so far. Money for additional digital and seating updates.
Ground lease for the property expires in 2048 and specifies premises must be used as a theater.

Some shots of and in the Milbridge can be seen in the 2005 indy movie The Puffy Chair.
I’ve got an answer to a couple of questions and some news. The Milbridge was called the Colonial when it opened in 1937 so Ken, you can update the seating capacity and the AKA. Unfortunately you can also update the status as closed.
According to an article in BDN Maine for August 5, 2015 it is unlikely that this summer’s only theater will reopen due to the death of the owner, Dave Parsons, who had owned the theater since 1978 (no indication if he made the name change). Also, according to his brother it probably would have not opened this year anyway because of the digital situation. To renovate and upgrade the theater would cost $150,000 which wouldn’t seem feasible.
I’ve uploaded a photo of the façade, with a tribute to the owner on the marquee, taken by Phil Duggan. You will note the emerald green door. It seems as though Dave’s favorite movie was the Wizard of Oz and to pay homage to it the door was painted emerald green and the ramp to the theater was painted yellow.
And the actual address is??????
Seth, can you get us a full address to we can have a Google Street view.
Johnny any address, seating capacity or anything else to flesh out the heading?
Origin of name?
Richard Harrison – When Lost Memory severed his connections with Cinema Treasures most of his comments and photos were deleted, including the one of the Pilgrim to which you refer. Could you possibly upload it now?
Uploaded a photo from the Emmerson Collection of the Portsmouth Public Library.

What about the library or the historical society to sort it out and maybe come up with a photo.
Couldn’t photos be put in the photo section rather than linked?
Great photo but couldn’t it be uploaded to the photo section. Links are easily broken.
Uploaded a picture in the Fox Poli era.
