There is an Oliver Theatre listed in 1914 at 358 Oliver St. The 1921 date give above must be a reopening.
Did anything ever happen with the restoration and reopening of this theatre? It doesn’t seem to be active.
This theatre has closed.
This theatre is now owned by Carmike.
Address is 413 State St.
The Star opened in 1909. Its address was 56 Church Street, and the building still exists. It is currently vacant.
Correct address was 40 John Street. The theatre opened in 1913 and sat 1050 people. It was demolished in September 1969.
This theatre and all the buildings are gone now. The Ritz burned down sometime after 1982. The address was approximately 80 Main Street.
This theatre was demolished in the 1920’s to make way for retail. It was originally Horak’s Opera House.
Address was 10 Kingston St. An auto parts store now stands where the theatre used to be.
Newman’s Theatre is listed at 4 W Erie Ave in the 1914/15 American Motion Picture Directory. Could that have been the same theatre?
The 1914/15 American Motion Picture Directory places the address as 110 Pine Street (not 10).
The address is 1366 Route 25A.
Also known as the Cattaraugus Theatre
This is now the YMCA. Actual address is 250 State St.
Actually further research shows the Tremont Theatre built in 1926 was the second one on the site. The original Tremont was a church that was converted to a movie theatre in 1910 before being demolished so the newer one could be erected.
The Pastime Theatre opened September 5, 1910 on the second floor of the Gardner Building which was the former YMCA. It is now demolished.
This theatre could not have been built in 1926 as it is listed in the 1914/15 American Motion Picture Directory.
Was this ever known as the Grand Theatre? A 1914 listing puts the Grand Theatre at 267 Main St.
Current equivalent address of the theatre since the renumbering would be 539-543 William St. A church is on the site now, but apparently this is not the old Star Theatre. The Star’s original name was the Arcadia.
An old map from 1939 (http://www.baldwinpl.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/HicksNeckpamphlet.pdf) indicates this was the third building on the right north of Merrick Street. Google Maps overhead view shows a possible candidate at 2419 Grand Avenue, if this is still standing.
This theatre will be reopening as a concert venue called the College Street Music Hall this spring!
Not sure where that description above came from, but it certainly wasn’t me!
If the comment right above me is correct then this theatre’s address would be 1242 State Street rather than 1292. I will have to look into this further.
Anyone know anything about this cinema? I can’t find any reference to it anywhere online.
OK – look at the current Street View. The entrance to the left of the main adult shop says “Loft Cinemas” which clearly are an adult movie theatre that is currently open with “six theatres” and “14 mini cinemas”.
Does anyone know how that works? Is the former auditorium all carved up, or maybe the former balcony? Or could it be former office space above the lobby?
If anyone lives in Toronto I’d love to know.
