I read about the Picwood in Maggie Valentine’s book, “The Show Starts On the Sidewalk”. There is even a picture of the Picwood at night. It really must have been a beautiful theater.

Bentz…I do believe I read somewhere that your grandpa would do his school homework in the boxoffice. Ask him about that. Also wasn’t the interior walls done in a crushed velet at one time? I think your grandpa changed it after the flood of 1972. Ask him about that as well.

Markedmunds….Your right the main auditorium was twinned. The other screen was on the former stage. Not in the balcony. You walked down a long hallway built inside the 2nd auditorium then onto the former stage.

JohnMessick commented about Jordan Theater on Feb 18, 2008 at 3:53 pm

Patsy… What county in Pa. is Greenville located in? Any idea? The reason I ask is. If one would write the historical society of that county, they may have photos of the Jordan. Maybe more then what are on CinemaTour. I tried this with the counties in my area of Pa. Also I wrote the the historical society of San luis Obispo in California for pictures on the Fremont..still waiting for those.

JohnMessick commented about AFI Silver Theatre on Feb 4, 2008 at 3:43 am

I think they are just being good capitalists. The more popular the film they place it where they seat more. More seats=more people=more dollars generated. Am I wrong to think that?

JohnMessick commented about Capitol Theatre on Feb 4, 2008 at 3:18 am

Jack, I was in Milton on Sunday evening. Milton now has a walking tour of the town. Its a one mile tour with 14 sites. Each stop features photo/literature kiosks. The Capitol site features a lengthy write on the Capitol as well as some neat pictures. Pictures that are included are the one of the Agnes flood, the fire and the Dec.21st 1963 picture of the auditorium filled with kids waiting for Santa to appear.
