Need to update the address on this theatre.
The address for the Hunts Cinestage Theatre, AKA High Street, Lyceum, Uptown, was 217 North High Street, Columbus, Oh.
The address for the Panarama Theatre is 9110 Van Nuys Blvd. Also according to the newspaper accounts in 1949 there is a time capsule of copper buried in the foundation that contains gum, bobby socks, pictures of Frank Sinatra, pictures of Rita Hayworth and various other items.
Gary in my data I have that at one time the Grove/Little London/Alhambra was also called the Chandler, if my records are correct during what period of time was it know by that name?
Shouldn’t the bi-line under the picture read Salida, Co.? The story reads that is on the main thoroughfare in downtown Salida, Colorado, and that there is an opportunity for tax credits and low interest loans fron the Colorado Historical Society.
This is not the first theatre that has altered a copywrighted play as it happens all the time in community theatre to accommadate its locale. As Grant states in the above post it was because of a disgruntled person and a newspaper trying to get a headline that created the controversy. It happens in High School plays put on by the drama departments as well as small towns like thus Utah town. If you have seen the play you know that dropping the profanity would not have altered the play to a degree that it would have damaged it.
I live in or around two large metropolitan areas and have seen plays altered to fit the community morals or the school district morals but enjoyed them non the less.

Neo could you correc the spelling of Loew’s, you have it spelled like the Hardware store.
Neo, The original 6 theatres were the shoebox style with screens almost looking like they were painted on the wall. The speakers were along the ceiling of the auditoriums. The nex six that Loew’s added on were much nicer and the screens were a different story altogether. Two of the new auditoriums were the ones set up for 70mm that Grant had mentioned in his initial post, but never utilized.
Many years back while vacationing for a week in the Seattle, Tacoma area the desk clerk at the hotel recommended the Blue Mouse as a really neat neighborhood theatre with the old theatre atmosphere. I remember the ticket at that time had a mouse on the ticket and they were still dispensed by the Automatic ticket machine. The old 5 button ticket dispenser. Must have been before the new seats were installed but coming from the old school the seats weren’t the feature, it was the ambiance of the old theatre and the friendliness of the local staff.
The address for the Airline Theatre is 246 North Dixie, Vandalia. Oh. 45377.
The Page Manor Cinema is located at 5884 Airway Drive, Dayton, Oh. It is still open and independantly operated. It is a bargain theatre with all seats $2.50 and Wesnesday is bargain day with all seats at $1.75. they have a web site:
I know that the Paramount is demolished but not sure about when, maybe JimRankin can fill that information in. The address and the seating are listed in the above posts by Jim and Evan so it can be updated with that info.
I think the description of this theatre is for the Columbia Theatre. Also according to the info that I have the Arcade had a retail arcade and the theatre in later life had two seperate auditoriums. The front facade of the Arcade is not the elaborate front as the Columbia as described above. The lower portion of the Arcade is a red brick with a rather plain white stucco surfaced top.
According to the info I have they were two seperate theatres and the Arcade later in its life had two seperate auditoriums. The Arcade had a retail arcade connected to the theatre also.
Iam sorry about the Disney listing – It was Columbia with a Disney release that was originally scheduled to start after the fourth week of the run of “Annie”. After the contract was made to run “Annie” exclusive for the 18 weeks there was a rift with Disney because of the cancellation of the scheduled Disney run.
Being a commercial pilot and my route is between St. Louis and Honolulu the Waikiki was one of my favorite theatres. The size, the ambiance, the beauty of the theatre, the sound it was all just a great movie experience. I think the my favorite movie to view there was “Pearl Harbor”. The sound, the projection and everything was all top notch. I went on week night to teh early show and as large as the Waikiki was it was at least three fourths full. I still find it hard to believe that the theatre was not a money maker. With the closing of the Waikiki and the long gone Kohio my two favorite theaters are now gone in Hawaii. Even though my condo is much closer to a multiplex it would go into Waikiki to the Waikiki theatre. Now that it is gone I try catching my movies at the Esquire Theatre in St. Louis, another old movie palace that is still one of the busiest in the St. Louis Market. The Waikiki will be missed by all theatre fans from from the islands and the mainlanders that make it a point to see a movie while in the islands. I also agree with a comment above that Waikiki has enough shopping spots and really don’t need another.
The Palace theatre in Cleveland at one time housed the offices for the Reigional Manager for the Loew’s Theatre Midwest Division. Rein Rabakopf was the Regional Manager and over saw the Loew’s State, Loew’s Orpheum and Loew’s Mid City in St. Louis at the time.
