As evidenced by the interior picture, there is really nothing left to suggest it was a movie theater at one time. The exterior has been wonderfully restored, though.
On a recent trip to Key West, we went to this theatre. We sat in the old main auditorium, which is now theater 4. Well appointed and comfortable.
This is great. Perhaps now there will be an end to racist and homophobic comments.
Currently being used as a church.
Also including the theater’s website as well.
Opened November 19 2013.
According to the website, the theater will close down in December 2013 in order to install digital projection equipment.
The History Channel show “American Pickers” was set in Greensburg last night. (11/20/813). The guys were in a warehouse filled with items from the tornado’s aftermath that were going to be auctioned. Two 35mm projectors and lamp houses from the Twilight Theater were shown, as well as an exterior photo. They were expected to bring $500 each at auction.
Go to Google Streetview and look at the florist shop at 354 Simcoe Street in downtown Beaverton. The details on the upper windows are a match for the first theatre picture of the exterior. It truly appears to be a theatre which predates 1940.
The Strand on Mara Road was built in 1940 and has its own Facebook page.
It appears that this theatre is now closed. The phone has been disconnected and the website link is dead.
Now known as the Main Street Cinemas. Here’s the website:
Streetview was way off. Address is 420 Roberts Drive, not Street. It has now been corrected. According to film listings the website, this theatre seems to be screening public domain DVDs using a DVD projector.
According to the Cineplex website, there are 7 screens at this theatre.
The new cocktail lounge replaced one auditorium, reducing the number of screens to 15.
A recent story details the success of the Kickstarter campaign to purchase 2 digital projectors. The third one will have to wait for a while. Here’s the link:
Now down to 13 screens, showing a variety of art, Hindi, and second-run films.
Cinematour shows the Central Theatre as an AKA for the Lowell Theater, just up the street. Rotate the street view and you’ll see it down the block.
Status should be changed to open, showing movies. Phone number is 519-291-6000. Website: http://www.capitolcinema.ca/index.html
If this site were about the sexual mores of urban cultures, then OK. I think there is something more prurient afoot here.
Why is this an important topic?
This theater was located at 764 Bainbridge Street. It is now a video production studio for Nature’s Way Outdoors. Streetview has been updated.
A picture from the 70’s can be seen on the Cinematour website. http://www.cinematour.com/tour/us/22625.html
Still open at this point. The website is down but movie information is available via a recording at the phone number.
The Oakwyn is now coming full circle and is being turned into a music theater venue called “Wire.”
