My above comment is correct. The theatre at Orange & 12th is the Strand. The Ronson was at S Orange Ave & Littleton Ave.
Anyone know if this was once called the Elite Theatre? The 1914 American Motion Picture Directory lits an Elite Theatre at the corner of Summer Ave & Bloomfield Ave.
This theatre was at one time apparently called the Garfield Auditorium as that is what is engraved on the peak in the front as you can see in the street view.
The picture of the Palace looks nothing like the Shaker Cafe building at all. I do not know that this address is correct.
It looks to be the Alvarez Condominiums now.
The Fine Arts Theatre is listed at 51 Broad Street (http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/17154). Were these two theatres (Capitol and Fine Arts) next door to each other or did the number change over time and they were really the same theatre? It seems to be that there is only one building at this address.
The Capitol Theatre is listed at 53 Broad Street (http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/39511). Were these two theatres (Capitol and New) next door to each other or did the number change over time and they were really the same theatre? It seems to be that there is only one building at this address.
This is open for both film and live events as the Multi Media Arts Center.
It appears the building that used to be the theatre is now a church called Chateau De Grace which has an address of 49 Dodd Street on the building.
James: the building is still readily apparent in Google Street views from 2013, so it wasn’t demolished back in 2011.
A good article about the Capitol: http://secondriver.blogspot.com/2010/05/capitol-theatre.html
In 1914 the Liberty Theatre is listed at 617 Atlantic Ave. Possibly a previous name for this theatre.
address for this one in 1914/15 AMPD is 1308 Boardwalk
Theatre is on the northeast corner of Saunders St and Broadway.
In the 1914/15 American Motion Picture Directory the address is given as 362 Broad St.
Frank, that article is from two years ago and it said the theatre would be open by the end of the year (2013) so I am guessing things have fallen apart.
Prior to its remodeling into the Regent Theatre this was known as Johnson Hall, the Johnson Opera House, and Doyle’s Moving Picture House.
The 1914/15 American Motion Picture Directory lists the Art Theatre at 432 State Street in Schenectady. Was this theatre demolished to make way for the Proctor’s or was it remodeled?
The Andrews Theatre is listed in the 1914/15 American Motion Picture Directory, so the 1932 date above is either a renovation of an old theatre or a replacement of it with the same name.
This theatre has been closed for two months now due to building and fire code violations. If and when they will reopen is uncertain.
This theater closed on March 1, 2015.
It has reopened.
The building is for sale on Craigslist for $250,000: http://westernmass.craigslist.org/bfs/4846667691.html
Address is 3265 Broad Street
Ed: The Winslow Block was originally a multistory building with multiple storefronts. In April 1908 the Happy Hour Theatre opened on the second floor. Four months later in August 1908 the Lyric Theatre opened in a storefront on the ground floor. In 1916 the Lyric moved upstairs taking over the former Happy Hour space and changed it name to the Strand Theatre. Therefore the Lyric that passed out of existence and was replaced by E Harrison Company was the space on the first floor of the building. In 1946 the building was remodeled and the Strand took over the entire building. If you look at the Google Street View of the State Street side of the Strand building you can see all the bricked-over windows and doors of those original first floor retail spaces.
