atmos commented about Rex on Mar 3, 2009 at 4:11 am

Cinema was built by a company headed by Emile Couzinet,film producer and director.It opened in 1932 and closed in 1976 and was demolished a short time later.The architect was Auguste Bluysen and the address appears to be 163 Rue Croix-de-Seguey.The small article I found also said that the interior decor had been preserved but no indication of where it might be.

Both Ron’s :Found reference to this theatre while staying with Ken Roe recently.It came from a book titled,Built in Boston:City and Suburb by Douglass Shand-Tucci.
It could be an error as it would be unusual to have two atmospherics in the same suburb.Perhaps someone could check the publication.

Theatre had a blue ceiling with twinkling stars so the style is atmospheric,verified by the interior photo above.

The Palace Theatre in Gary,Indiana could certainly be another one to add to the list having been closed since 1972.

From information I have found the Palace opened as the Grand Theatre on 24 Nov 1915 and was damaged by a fire on 27 Jul 1980.I don’t recall where I found these details so I am not sure how accurate they are.

From what I have read in articles on the internet I don’t think this theatre is still being used as a parking garage.During the last few years concerts and a record launch have been staged there.

If this is the same Alcazar Theatre I have on my atmospheric list it was renamed the Republic Theatre in 1911 and it reopened as an atmospheric around 1930.
