The address that NY ozoner gave on Jan. 23, 2011 is an accurate address.
Drive-In that is the same link that I posted on April 26, 2011.
I called the Village Chapel, 256.547.5557 in regards to the former drive-in address. They said that the entrance was indeed at 3101 Forest Ave., The Funeral Home is located aproximately where the middle of the drive-in was and they built a new entrance on Vandell Blvd. when the Funeral Home was built to avoid traffice on Forest Ave. So the address was correct to begin with at 3101 Forest Ave.
American Classics is still in operation and photos still come up. They just did a road excursion last summer and have added new photos to their location.
In cross checking the photos on tbe photo page with each persons flickr account they seem to be legitimate. The owners of the flickr photos are the same people that posted them on Cinema Treasures.
Opened in 1935 – Closed in 1977. Was owned by Statesville Theatre Corp.
Does anyone know the status of this theatre? It seems to be all boarded up and not in use so why would they install a Hope Jones/Wuriltzer Theatre Organ if there were not plans for the building? Did they have plans and it fell through and what became of the organ?
goodson is right about the 1983 phooto, it is of the Etowah Theatre, The back of the Liberty theatre faced the side of the much larger Etowah Theatre, The correct address for the Liberty was 432 4th St. NW, Attalla, Al. 35954. There is like a mini park with a large pagoda where the Liberty once stood.
Has the Towne Cinema been converted to digital projection?
Tp, the drive-in you are referring to was the Starlight Drive-In.
The Woodlawn Drive-In was just north of bypass 50 about where Goodwill Industries was.
This was one of the older drive-ins, opening in 1942.
Mr. Gilbert Scheffelmaer who was one of the original co-owners of the Gem Theatre recently passed away. On June 1, 1950 the Gem was playing a double bill “Blondie Hits The Jack Pot” and “Hoe Down”.
If you look at photos from the 1930’s and early 1940’s the photo in the header looks the same. The front facade was completely covered over in a remodel sometime in the 1940’s. The current facade looks nothing like the original.
Added the Grand Re-opening photoplay from 1959
When looking at a Hybrid there are no traces or footprints of the drive-in today.
Using this link it has a calendar of upcoming features. Has this theatre converted to digital projection?
The former lobby of the theatre now houses ATB Financial but the Paramount verticle is still i place.
The only thing left of this drive-in are the steel girders cut off at the ground that once held the screen.
You are right about the confusion. The photo is of the Sunset drive-in across the river.
According to the Hardin Website none of the three theatres listed are open. The Redwood Falls Twin was the last to list a movie which was from 12/26 thro ½/13
Roger, I didm’t find it anywhere, I called ad talked with the theatre directly.
rivest, your link is not a working link.
The former Dale Theatre building is still standing. If you do a street view and go down N. Merrick you can see where the exit doors have been bricked in. Also on the street view the same buildings next to the theatre on E. Broad St. in the photo are the same as the ones next door to the theatre in the street view.
