Michael, thanks for catching that. I’ve been through the whole Rochester/Penfield thing. The Post Office seems to think its Rochester and so do the Maps. The Temple Sinai at 363 Penfield is in Rochester. The problem with 360 Penfield is it is strictly residential. Perhaps the street numbers changed. I’ll do more checking. I would have never got into this theater if you hadn’t listed it as a CINERAMA Theater!

It might not have “played for about two years”, but the Original “STAR WARS” did play for 62 WEEKS, that’s not too bad a run!

THANKS Michael for starting the “REMEMBERING CINERAMA” series again!

I notice the first time “THIS IS CINERAMA” was shown, it was 3-strip/ 26fps/ 7-track stero. For the Re-issue it was 70mm/ 24fps/ 6-track stero. It lost 1-track of stero/ 2fps/ did it it cover as much of the screen as the 3-strip?

THANKS AGAIN!

Ret. AKC (NAC) CCC Bob Jensen, Manteno, Illinois commented about Venus Theater on May 6, 2012 at 6:34 am

Built in 1926, and showed movies till 1961, became retail, but don’t know how long it was abondaned before being bought in 1999 by Imani Community Development Corporation, Imani means faith in Swahilli, and the Development Corporation is affilated with the First Baptist Church of South Richmond. It is located in the Manchester Historic District, and Hull Street was like the second downtown. The Theater, a three-story mixed residential and commecial structure and two small single-story vacant retail structures have had had a $7.9 million “historic rehab” done to them making 68 apartments and first floor retail space.

It is a two story Classsical Revival-style building faced with cast stone and columns defining the bays. There is a stone horizontal superstructure with “VENUS” carved in the frieze and carved stone medillions below the cornice.

CT would welcome photos, past and present, inside and out, and more info.
