Ron, the Grandview is listed on Cinema Treasures
Thomasina you can send it to me at
Thomasina if I am reading youu correctly they made the auditorium into two floors, correct?
Concord had a lot more theatres than what we are talking about here. In addition to the Cabarrus above and the Cabarrus AKA Paramount across the street, just down the street at 2 South Union was the State Theatre, also there was the Pastime on Main Street, and many others like the Center, the Lincoln, and the Roxy. These are some that I have come across in my studies. There were a few drive-ins also in the Concord area, the Willis, the Poplar, the Newton- Conover, the Concord, the Carolina and the Airport. There have been a couple mutli screen venues that have come and gone also. I believe the only operating theatres left are the UA Carolina Mall Cinemas (screens ?)and AMC’s Concord Mills 24. Thomasina correct me if I am wrong or if I missed something that you have more info on.
The original Music Box was located at 901 SW Adler St., it was also known as the Peoples Theatre, and the Adler Street Music Box. It opened in 1918.
The Almeda opened in 1927 seating 600. It was renamed the 30th Avenue in 1937 and then the Cine 30 in 1964. With new ownership the name went back to the Almeda in 1969.
The exterior looks much like it did some 70 years ago when it first opened with its Mediterranean Clay tile roof and stucco walls. The marquee has been removed and poster cases boarded over.
The Dawn has been demolished. Lost Memory do you have any further history on the Dawn, style, single floor, architect ect.?
Someone needs to correct the Related Websites, Plaza Theatre Renovation Project (Official) takes you to the Plaza in Romsey, England, not El Paso, Tx.
Thomasina, you are patially correct about my location, it is divided between the St. Louis area and Ohau, Hi. The address that I listed was taken from a newspaper ad of 12/24/49. I do have a couple photos that I was able to obtain in my theatre research and when add a photo goes back on line I will submit them. I have contributed a couple hundred theatres to Cinema Treasures and their history so it just isn’t the addresses that I have. I have over 10,000 theatres in both my physical and computer data base. This has been a hobby of mine for many years now. When doing my research and I find theatres that are not submitted to the site I will submit them, sometimes with a lot of history and sometimes just the opposite. I take it that you are the UA girl.
I show the address for the Cabarrus Theatre AKA Carolina Theatre was 22 Union Street, N., Concord, NC. 28025
You are so correct, that should have been North Dakota.
Clay, it was just Robert Boller that was involved with the Granada Theatre in Lawrence, Carl had already set up offices in California and was working out of those offices.
The area that the theatre was located was completely demolished when Interstate 64 went through in 1965/1966. The St. Clair had been closed since the early 50’s though and the last time we were by it in late 1957 the marquee was barely hanging on on one side. The entire building was boarded up.
This was one of two theatres that Starship had in the Valley. The other was known as the Olympus. The Sandy Starship was originally a second run house and later a dollar theatre. Cnemark built a 7 screen right next door and later added two screens. The decline for both theatres was when the Megaplex as Jordons Commons opened. It was a 17 screen. At that time both theatres became Dollar Theatres.
The Cinemark Movies 9 is still open as a Bargain house 1.00 Matinees and 1.50 evenings.
The Sandcastle Twin was originally a retail store that the Kohlers converted to a movie theatre. One of the reasons the Kohlers closed the Sandcastle was a lack of family movies. The theatre was not open on Sundays.
The address for the East Drive-In was 12800 East Colfax Avenue, Aurora, Co.
The correct address for the Berlin Drive-In was 225 Wilbur Cross Highway, Berlin, Ct. 06037. This address will map it correctly also.
I was just curious because they got rid of their theatres in the St. Louis Market long before they filed for Bankruptcy.
Manwithnoname, was this one of the GCC Cinemas that was closed when they went out of business? Then Cinemark picked it up?
If it originally opened in 1991 as a first run house and closed in 2004 it was open more than two years.
lostmemory I believe your addres is correct, that is what I show also. The only other listing for a twin in Meriden is the Meriden Twin Theatre at 535 South Broad Street.
I will post them here on Cinema Treasures when add a photo goes back on line.
Here is a link that shows what the building looks like now.
Try this link for a pic of the Arcade Theatre.
Warren, I don’t have the 2004 cencus for Houston, but 2003 was listed at 1,630.553.
