Current photo shows the Cactus is no more and it is now the Greer Iron Works. When did that happen? Status needs to be changed.
Uploaded a 1915 photo of the entrance complete with the resident band.
Uploaded a bunch of photos circa 1929 found on Flikrriver attributed to CharlotteZoe.
The Glen Oaks was an add-on to the existing shopping center, not part of the original; part of Century’s recognition of the potential of the vast area north of Jericho Turnpike. They also envisioned a stand alone theater on the north side of Hillside Avenue, west of the intersection with Braddock Avenue. I remember the large sign which announced this was the site of the newest link to the chain of Century Theaters. Never happened.
theatrefan it would be nice if you could share those items.
Joe, shame Film Daily didn’t have a photo since no images of the Bellaire in the day seem to be available.
If they don’t repurpose the now closed Walmart location they will have to build by the Carmans Road entrance to the complex. Just came back from the mall and saw no signage about a new theater.
Uploaded a 1950s postcard image of Main Street, Tarkio with the theater on the left.
Thomas, there is no entry for the Rebel on Cinema Treasures. Could it, perhaps, be one on the site but without a reference to an alternate name?
lazyspices – since you know which building housed the Blue Moon perhaps you could indicate the street and address on Cinema Treasures. With that information we might be able to get more information.
Operated by William Edmondson, his mother and sister for a period of time in the 1940s.
Knew about the Lynbrook (they still haven’t begun the demolition of the old theater) but another at Sunrise Mall? From the scope of it I would think a new building would be required rather than using space in the existing mall.
Tom, you mentioned streetcar advertising when you set this up. Do you have access to photos of same?
There is a 2/6/2004 comment re the stream but it doesn’t site a specific reference.
And a spiffy new facade it is.
Uploaded an additional photo, one showing the full vertical.
According to Bivouac June 1991 was the beginning of the end. I’ve uploaded some of his FLICKR images of the Lyn.
Early and mid 1960s ads show late run double bills of major pictures, e.g. The Singing Nun with The Thrill of it all.
Uploaded a 1982 picture from the American Classic Images series.
Re my earlier comment. Went to a play at Studio 54 the other night, traditional seating restored.
Uploaded 1934 ad.
From what I’ve read it’s more likely to have been opened even earlier than 1924. The name of the town comes from the discovery of gold in 1902. The population quickly rose to 20,000 making it the largest community in Nevada. By 1910, when mining had become more difficult the population was down to 10,000. A 1923 fire caused by a still wiped out a large segment of the town. The Lyric, being made of stone survived.
In the 2010 census the population was under 300.
An application was made to the National Parks Service in 1982 to create the Goldfield Historical District. The buildings are individually owned and maintained. There was mention in a 2015 meeting of the Historical Society that a mason had been hired to work on the side entrance of the Lyric.
A special Goldfield Historical Festival is held each August.
I have uploaded a picture of the Lyric when it was being used as a warehouse from a Picasa File by a “Jim N”.

According to one source the Poway Playhouse was the first movie theater in the area located in the Carriage Center. I’ve uploaded two current pictures: one from the back, the other at the Thrift Store entrance with the roof line of the auditorium readily visible.
Amazing. Theater closed in 2002. And the sign was never vandalized.
