Uploaded a current photo of the Picture Theatre, sometimes referred to as the Picture House.
Uploaded an image from a European eBay site of what I believe to be a painting of the Opera House. (Can’t read the eBay description). Have verified it is the Opera House from a number of copyrighted photos which I came upon.
Uploaded several photos. I question the address in the overview since I saw it referenced online as 140 North Main Street. Any Jerseyites can confirm or refute?
Historic Toronto has a detailed history on this theatre which was located at 1154-1156 St. Clair. I’ve uploaded a photo from that site.
“Official” photos uploaded.
Uploaded a non-snow covered marquee photo.
Photo by Dick Dziadzio uploaded.
Uploaded a photo in the transition stage, vertical has been removed, auditorium still exists.
The oft postponed hearing is now postponed indefinitely. Now, there is also the additional wait for the Nassau County Department of Public Works to weigh in on a proposal to cut off access to Middle Neck Road from Maple Avenue during the demo. Middle Neck Road is a county road.
If this goes on much longer the building will just fall down of its own accord.
Last week the new marquee advertised a hiring fair.
Good news. It was announced that the theater would reopen by July 4th. The damage from Superstorm Sandy was so extensive that the screens had to be removed and most of the ground floor of the theater rebuilt. There are new digital and 3D projectors in each of the theaters.
Noting the trend by the big distributors for larger, more luxurious seats the replacements will reduce the capacity to 436.
No indication of the cost of the rebuilding was given by the owner who regarded it as a “labor of love”.
There will also be a new ticket reservation system.
TLSLOEWS uploaded two pictures of the exterior from a site called Franks Place.
A couple of photos uploaded.
Uploaded a picture of the completed Plains Drive in from the Texas Tech University Special Collections.

Although the building was demolished, the façade was retained and the Tower name painted on the front, per the photo I’ve uploaded.

Uploaded three exterior photos. All I can say about the first is WOW, what a location.
Upload photo of the complex which is located on the second level of Pioneer Place (no way is the street view even in the ball park) an two shots of the exterior signage.
Uploaded post movie photos of the façade and an early add. Also revised the street view to show it’s appearance now.
Photos of the restored façade uploaded. There are a lot of depressing photos as a derelict, which I won’t upload, if you go to Bryan, TX Theaters Images.
Photo of opening day referred to in the overview uploaded (Link has been removed).
Three actual photos uploaded.

Also, a Ford dealership has been built on the former Drive-In site.
