Just learned of this theatre through a neighbor whose mother lives in San Antonio Texas!
My friend enjoyed Dearly Beloved and said the acting was “first class and very delightful”.
That is what my friend told me…thanks for replying and of course…Aloha and Happy New Year, my CT friend.
Does this theatre still show movies or just stage productions. The latest stage production was Dearly Beloved as a friend of mine is there now and went last night.
I have sent Ross Melnick an email re: making that change…stay tuned.
And what a wonderful idea to have this theatre restored in time for the 2014 County All-School Reunion…perhaps Mr. Dobbs will attend and add his celebrity status to the fun! And yes, this theatre’s status should be changed from closed to RENOVATING!
Nice to see this one surface again on CT…..hopefully former resident, Lou Dobbs will support this theatre for future generations!
Great news! You have made my Christmas holiday!
raysson: Please keep us updated on any developments regarding this theatre and its future in uptown Charlotte!
Chuck: I’ve spoken to the family who owns this drive-in and the father once gave me an old movie reel which I still own.
It’s a shame that Nashville doesn’t still have this theatre!
Great news for this art deco theatre in Ocala!
My May 25, 2011 post is incorrect. The movie theatre was in town. In the photo given is the flat roof building the former projection/concession building? If so, was it moved to the present day location?
A fellow CT friend sent me the article featured in the recent “CSWalczak” post. Nice story that shows with concerned citizens it can be done!
Is this the same Rialto Theatre that The Hit Men will be performing on October 27, 2012? They are original members of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
“Council member Patsy Kinsey believes the developer with the best renovation plan will get the council’s support. This includes taking the pieces of the old facade and putting them back in place.” Music to my ears!
ncmark: Thank you for posting this recent Observer article! I have now sent a thank you email to the journalist, Mark Price for writing the story about this theatre gem in the heart of Charlotte NC!
KenRoe: Thanks for this information!
Jeb: Thanks for your theatre passion regarding this theatre at such a young age. If only it could have been saved…it should have been!
And what happened to the organ that is mentioned in its history??
And after clicking on the large b/w photo posted I saw more photos of this absolutely beautiful theatre! Why wasn’t it saved and dare I ask….what is on that former theatre site now?
“was constructed to with-stand earthquakes and the demolition took longer than anticipated.” Glad the ole gal made the demolition of her as hard as she could!
Do wish though that this theatre still had its original marquee.
Learned of this theatre when seeing that the Fireball Run (missing children) visited Waterbury CT today and toured the theatre. They posted a photo of the awesome lobby on their FB link.
