Trolleyguy commented about Digital Conversion Dooming Barron Theatre? on Jul 10, 2013 at 6:52 am

Given the owners' comments, it seems that they just want out of the movie business. The digital conversion is just an excuse at this point.

Google street view of August 2012 shows the building still standing.(Barely)

It’s simply rude and distracting and shouldn’t be tolerated.

Trolleyguy commented about Southern Theatre on Jun 29, 2013 at 7:03 am

This theater stopped showing movies way before the 70’s. It was subsequently a drug store until abandonment and demolition.

Trolleyguy commented about Oakwyn Theater on Jun 29, 2013 at 6:57 am

The closing date of the 70’s given in the header is wrong. Bruce C’s picture has it right, 1951. I know, because I lived around there at the time.

Trolleyguy commented about Regal Mayberry Cinema 5 on Jun 25, 2013 at 8:09 am

This theater is probably closed. It does not appear on Regal’s website and Google Maps show a church at that address. An internet search fails to turn up this theater as well. Also, the phone has been disconnected.

This theatre was mentioned last night (6/10/13) on the “American Pickers” TV show. A black and white photo of theatre was shown as well as a number of movie posters that had been displayed at it.

The Paramount’s marquee was featured prominently in a “Cold Case Files” episode about a robbery and killing in a jewelry store down the street from the theatre.

I’ve just uploaded a picture of this theater to the Photos section.

Trolleyguy commented about Movies 16 on Jun 10, 2013 at 12:25 pm

I’ve uploaded a new picture to the Photos section. The sign on the exterior of the theater still says “Movies 10.”

I’ve just added some new pictures to the Photos section. My previous ones were lost when Webshots shut down.

I uploaded 2 pictures in Photos section. One shows the current park at the old theater site, the other of its demolition in 1968.

According to the website, all the auditoriums now have digital projection.

Trolleyguy commented about Rex Theatre on Jun 4, 2013 at 2:12 pm

Main Street has been constructed, so I was able to upload a current picture in the Photos section.

Trolleyguy commented about Silver Cinema Market Square on May 31, 2013 at 3:13 pm

I just added an exterior picture of the entrance to this theater. There is no Google view because it is in the rear of the strip mall and faces a parking lot.

Trolleyguy commented about Strand Theatre on May 31, 2013 at 6:35 am

I have added 2 1920’s pictures in the photo section. Compare the upper cornice details to the modern photo and it is apparent that the building still stands.

I think it would be safe to list status as “demolished.”

This theater has been recently remodeled with a new ticket counter, concession stand, and fresh carpeting.
