Could you post a link to whatever page you found that on? Thanks.

what does it mean for a movie (as opposed to a TV show) to be in HD?

Ron Newman commented about Teele Square Theatre on Dec 3, 2011 at 4:31 am

Sadly, the building turned out to be a total loss and was demolished last week. Nothing now remains of the former Teele Square Theatre.

Ron Newman commented about Berklee Performance Center on Dec 1, 2011 at 3:47 am

The Globe has more detail on this: Berklee breaks ground on 16-story dorm, performance center

Only a single one-story building was demolished to make way for this project. The new building will contain a “400-seat student performance venue”. That’s a lot smaller than the existing Performance Center and I think it serves a different purpose.

This location is no longer listed at flexbaths.com . Is it still open as a gym or has it been converted to a different use now?

Is the facade still standing, and if so, what is being built behind it?

Ron Newman commented about Route 3 Cinema City on Nov 10, 2011 at 2:35 pm

Is the address given here correct? The Stop & Shop which is replacing the cinema has the address 299 Chelmsford Street … which, being an odd number, would be across the street from 308.

A multiple-alarm fire several hours ago seriously damaged the carpet store and several other businesses in this block. Some of the building may need to be demolished.

Why is the capacity reduced from the original 643? Has a balcony been removed?

Is it still used as a medical facility?

You are writing this in the past tense. Is the theatre no longer open?

This works out well for the Somerville, Brattle, and Coolidge here around Boston, so go for it.

Ron Newman commented about V.F.W Parkway Drive-In on Aug 1, 2011 at 5:08 am

The Google Map and associated Street View are wildly wrong. I have no idea how Google came up with a street in Somerville that doesn’t even have the same name as the one the drive-in (in West Roxbury) was actually on.

Ron Newman commented about Bundy Theatre on Jul 21, 2011 at 5:19 am

Was this theatre at Pico and Centinela, or Pico and Bundy? The Santa Monica – Los Angeles city line is at Centinela.

Borders Books is going entirely out of business, starting a liquidation of all stores as early as this Friday. What will happen to this theatre then?

Ron Newman commented about Mattapan Theatre on Jul 16, 2011 at 12:25 pm

And of course you can still take trains from here to South Station … but now it’s a streetcar line to Ashmont and then the Red Line subway from there through Fields Corner into Boston.

Two of them – there’s another at Jordan’s in Reading, MA.

Corporate sponsorship has changed, and the theatre is now called ‘Tempur-Pedic IMAX 3D Theatre at Jordan’s Furniture’.

Ron Newman commented about Norwood Theatre on Jul 7, 2011 at 3:37 pm

An article in today’s Boston Globe (maybe only in the Globe South regional edition) says:

Susan Lewis of Dover and South Carolina … bought the old Norwood Theatre and is carrying out a multimillion-dollar restoration. With a new beer and wine license almost in hand, Lewis will offer the space for arts and other events when it opens in August 2012. First up, three months before that grand opening, is a bridal shower, she said.
