There is a sign in the window that says “Closed for Renovations” but I don’t believe this is true. I think this theatre is closed permanently. None of the other signs in the window have been updated since October (which must be when the theatre closed). All the posters and standees in the lobby are for movies from back then, the theatre’s Facebook page has disappeared, and the movie hotline phone number just rings and rings.
The Strand has closed as the town has pulled out as the operator. The final movie was “It’s A Wonderful Life” on December 15, 2013. The theatre hosted live community show on December 21, 2013 and is now dark as the Knight of Columbus who own the building ponder its future.
It is true that it does not operate as a theatre in the traditional sense. However, during the summer they show movies once per week on the screen and charge admission. To me that still qualifies as open.
What about adding some kind of link on each theatre’s page that says something like “Make Corrections” which people would be able to click and send corrections (or what they think is a correction) to a Cinema Treasures staff member for review? Then people do not need to make a post about it publicly at all. Also, it streamlines the corrections process. There are theaters I have commented on as being closed or open, for example, that have the incorrect status on here and years later nothing on the page has changed to reflect updated information because no staff member ran across my comment. Adding a corrections link would help in that way as well.
I sit towards the front, about 1/3 of the way from the screen. If I am stuck in a theatre with stadium seating I make sure to sit in the non-stadium part, even if it means being too close to the screen.
jaboschen is right. The lobby building and auditorium both still stand. You can see it on the Google Maps overhead view and street view. Endicott Furniture, as shown in the old photo above, is still next door to the theatre. From the Google Street view you can even see the writing “Concord Theatre” on the sidewalk of the entryway to the former theatre.
The theatre was across from the library. It was demolished. It was wider than the apartment building that is now there,
The cinemas closed in 2011.
Definitely better back then. Very few single screen theatres still exist and it is nearly impossible to find one with a balcony anymore. I can’t stand stadium seating because it is so far from the screen, so I typically do not go to any newer cinemas.
This cinema is not closed. It was taken over by City Base Cinema and will eventually become an Alamo Drafthouse.
Not sure what you mean exactly whether it was a physical problem or what. It’s hard to get a good shot because of the elevated train tracks in front. I was permitted to access the inside of the theatre, though.
This theater closed down on February 26, 2013.
This theatre was demolished in 2008.
Address was 3501 S University Dr. Opened 1968, closed 1989. Also known as South Cinema.
rsalters: There is no Main Street in Adams. There was a previous theatre called the Atlas Theatre on the site of the Adams Theatre prior to its construction 1938. The Photoplay Theatre down the street was at one time known as the Adams Opera House and thus may have also been called the Adams Theatre at one point as well.
Chuck: Where are you finding that? What I have found says it closed in December 2011.
The Le Sueur is listed as closed on the Hardin Theatres website.
Now home to a golf driving range called the New Moon Drive-In Range (get the pun?). Address is given as 4200 Gerstner Memorial Boulevard.
Address is 35 E Idaho, not 38.
By the way, the function says concerts but it should be live theatre.
The demolition of the projection booth that was installed in 1930 has begun and will take about a week. This should uncover a giant eagle on the back wall that has been hidden for over 80 years.
Shouldn’t this be listed as the Chance Theatre since that is its current name?
The photos lostmemory posted from 1985 refute the assertion that the Zoe closed in 1982. A recent newspaper article about the Zoe being named to the National Register of Historic Places states that the theatre closed in 1987.
How do you do that? I could never figure out how to make a clickable link.
Beyond Imagination closed in 2008 and it became a church.
