Took a couple of pics. Looks like the future site of a very large swimming pool now.

It looks like the owners have made a few improvements to the theater. The theater has been repainted with a better color scheme and fake brick has been put on the walls inside and out (even on the ceiling outside. lol). Though still not great, it looks a lot better than previous iterations I have seen in photos.

Looks like i’m too late. I drove past the location tonight and it has been demolished! The deed must have been done fairly recently.

Corrected the names of the photos at the above link. They’re now called Lakeside Theater instead of May Mystery Theater. Thank you for the identification of the theater, Cosmic Ray!

Here are some more recent photos of this decaying theater. Last time I drove by, a door was open, so I may venture into it this weekend after I check to see if my tetanus shot is up to date.

I’m fine with his posting of the link. I’ve been lazy about posting lately. Haven’t even updated my own site in forever!

You’re preaching to the choir, brent. I try whenever possible to support the independent theaters such as the Winchester Drive-In (a personal favorite). However, the reason we have to spend a significant amount of time in libraries researching these old cinemas is because nobody documented them while they were still around. My attitude about monsterplexes is that, like it or not, they are now a part of cinema history. I would rather put the information down while it is readily available than to leave it for future researchers (who will probably wax nostalgic at the good ole days of monsterplexes) to decipher.

Does anyone know which streets bounded the old fairgrounds?

This is fantastic to hear. Is there any information on what type of venue it will be when it is completed?
