After reading about this theatre on the above boxofficemagazine link I have come to realize that De Angelis was truly ahead of his time! As was another famous and well known architect….Frank Lloyd Wright.
I guess Carrara Glass is similar to Vitrolite.
It is a shame that the Colonial is now a bank, but more importantly that its beautiful interior was changed “back then”…in the “boxofficemagazine” article one can see the elegant interior with the corner organ!
And I just viewed the Scotty Moore link! I had never seen an overhead view of that property and the theatre/stage in proxmity to the neighboring buildings! Would love to see the original facade replaced as it was all numbered when it was disassembled.
I walked by the Carolina Theatre corner just last night and saw a lovely small park setting in front of the former theatre. The most recent news in the Charlotte Observer this a.m. is very welcome news to all who hope to see this theatre restored and given back to the citizens of Charlotte!
Hard to believe this theatre was closed in 1954. It should have never closed in this quaint lake village.
The grandson of Michael DeAngelis, Mark DeAngelis became a CT member today, Jan. 31 2013. He posted on the Stage/Warsaw NY link. Join me in welcoming him to Cinema Treasures!
Again, this theatre should SADLY be noted as demolished.
“The most ironic thing about the Paramount/Piccadilly’s demolition is that the city is now attempting to construct a performing arts center on the exact same site!”
If anyone knows…post what is at the former theatre main street location now. Thanks.
I was in Canandaigua this past summer. Had I done my homework and realized that this town had a theatre designed by Michael DeAngelis I would have inquired about it and its location! A return trip is now in order!
Here is the list of DeAngelis designed theatres for anyone such as myself who is interested in the list of 31 with only 6 open today! I think the theatre in Batavia NY is now a church. Interesting that Michael designed a theatre in Florida which still has to this day…alot of art deco buildings such as the hotels done in pastel colors on South Beach.
Mark! Let me be the first to welcome you to CT. It is a pleasure to have the grandson of Michael DeAngelis among us. I hope that you honor us with many DeAngelis posts regarding this theatre designed by your grandfather along with the other DeAngelis designed theatres listed on CT. Again, a huge WELCOME!
What is the current restoration status with this historical theatre??
Great marquee news! Congratulations! Not sure where you could find black letters though hopefully someone on CT will read your post and help!
I just learned of this theatre in Manhattan, Kansas known as “the little Apple”. Very nice.
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!
