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.
33 Cedar St S is the address
221 Third Ave is the address
The address is 57 Montjoy St S
71 Third Ave is the address for the Broadway Diner which is located in the former theatre entrance.
It appears it may be closed again.
This drive-in closed in 2012 as they lacked the funds to upgrade to digital projection.
The theatre was carved out of storefronts at 62-64 Main Street South in 1932. The building still stands today.
Closed as a movie theatre in 2004, but was used for live music for a number of years afterwards.
This was built in 1913 as the Griffin Opera House. As seen on the marquee, the lat incarnation was spelled Town Cinemas (not Towne Cinema).
The article at http://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/2012/10/02/old-lincoln-theatres-silver-screen-gets-a-second-life suggests the theatre lasted until 1987.
I think this may have been called the Crescent, not the Crystal. The 1917-18 city directory lists the Crescent Theatre at this address.
Address is 75 Lakeshore Rd E in Mississauga.
I think the Victory was a separate theatre from the Bradley. There’s a picture of it at http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NTU3WDg0NA==/z/mq0AAMXQAx9RS1CQ/$T2eC16V,!%29QE9s3HFf3cBRS1CQ,je!~~60_57.JPG and while I can’t see the theatre clearly, the address says Main Street whereas the Bradley is on Front Street.
Closed around 1984.
Address was approximately 30 Pleasant Street.
