Uploaded images of a token issued by the Castle worth 5 cents when presented with a bottle. I don’t really understand exactly where it was worth 5 cents or to what bottles it applied.

Ads tout that admission and concession prices are half those found in other local theaters. Host theater of the Annual Cedar Rapids Independent Film Festival. Fully digital and with real butter on its popcorn.

My parents may have taken me to see Fantasia as a child. We went to a lot of movies in the city. Finally got to see it many years later on the CinemaScope screen of my local theater.

Shame the person who set up this theater didn’t give any information but the name and address.

Uploaded an image of the old Post Office Building from the Harvey Ginsberg Postcard Collection at the East Hampton Public Library. Obviously the 70 seat theater only used a little of the space therein.

Trying to find a picture of same but, so far, only located an ad which I’ve uploaded.

I tried to find an image of the Almira in the day but couldn’t. Oddly enough I could find pictures of the organ which was sent to England and the theatre into which it was subsequently installed.

Would be nice to know the full history how it morphed from a single screen to 6.

The permit is on the door dated January. Lobby is boarded over so nothing can be seen inside.

As part of a private party which was held in the vast lobby we were also treated to a short organ concert.

I found contradictory information regarding the Jamaica Rialto which makes no mention of Al Schwartz. See Savoy, Jamaica site.

The Family was unusual in that it’s entrance was at the side of the screen with the screen being at the street side of the building.

Throw in a strobe light or two and everyone will up chuck.

Joe, why would you say Nickelette is the correct spelling when the add says Nickellette?

Must have had a pretty good orchestra in the day since I saw a reference that they played in Hannibal, MO on one occasion.

And not long after its opening as the Colonade, it was purchased in 1911 by Messrs. Nelson and Schwindler and renamed the Star.

Uploaded an advertising photo as the Belasco from the Quincy Public Library collection. Portions of the Princess and Gem ads appear. Don’t belive the Princess in on CT so will have to add it, particularly since I have a photo of the exterior.

First talkies purported to be July 7, 1929.
