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.
fs805, if you look at the link that kenmcintyre posted on 03-21-10 it shows the same photo from the Houston Public Library stating it was the Dowling Theatre. It has an exterior and interior photo.
Different place altogether, the building at 5804 Weaver is the Kingdom Place Ministry, the former theatre building at 3415 McClellum Blvd. is Beyond Imagination and still uses the roadside marquee.
Mike, the Cherokee Theatre is still listed on CT. link
Mike, when ordering stills or one sheets from National Screen Service they were purchased outright, the theatre could do what they wanted with. The 30x40’s and the 40x60 had to be returned.
I don’t know where jwmovies is getting his addresses but a lot of correct addresses have been changed to his incorrect addresses.
Tp, jwmovies has listed a lot of addresses that have been changed to wrong addresses. Everything that is available on this drive-in lists the address as 1526 Parkview. In the old listings for Mid-
America Theatres it lists the address as 1526 Parkview. You would think that the company that owned the theatre would know the correct address of their theatres.
