Well, I’ve just been corrected. The White City Amusement Park was the location of the previously named Phoenix Theatre. It was built in 1905, 8 years after the 1893 fair. But likely trying to play off the White City name.
The 63rd & South Park Avenue location is still correct though.
There was also a Phoenix Theatre that was part of the White City at the 1893 World’s Fair, located at 63rd Street and South Park Avenue.
I just added about 5-6 photos, all courtesy of the Vintage St. Louis Facebook page.
I just added a circa 1962 exterior photo of the Empress as The Nation Of God Temple. Photo courtesy of the Vintage St. Louis Facebook page.
I just posted a 1946 photo of the Osage, courtesy of the Vintage St. Louis Facebook page.
There was a Lakewood Drive-In in Jeffersonville Indiana, that does not have a Cinema Treasures page. Is it possible that it was this theater first?
There are images of posters and tickets on a Clark County Facebook page I can post here, if it is indeed the same. If not, should I add Lakewood Drive-In as a theater?
“Theater” spelling should be changed to “Theatre”, based on an image of vintage tickets I posted. Image courtesy of Leslie Logsdon via Facebook.

Last correction. The Grand Theatre fire must have happened in 1928, not 1927. I just added a much nicer photo of the Grand Theatre with Richard Dix “Easy Come Easy Go” on the marquee. Which was released 04/21/28.
OK, Update & Correction. The Grand Theatre burned down in 1927. The Paramount was built in 1928, and was renamed the Paradise sometime after 1933.
I added a program and exterior image from that year for the Paramount, to the photos section.
Update/Correction: The Grand burned down in 1927. The Paramount was built on the same site. The Paramount was renamed the Paradise some time after 1933.
I just added a 1920’s photo of the Grand Theatre, which preceded the Paradise on the same site. The Grand Theatre burned down in 1927, according to a 2004 article in the Faribault Daily News. The article also mentioned a poured concrete foundation for the Paradise. To avoid the same fate as the Grand. It is probably not necessary to create a separate page for the Grand Theatre. As the address was the same as the Paradise. But the name should be added as past names. I found the photo on a Facebook page called “You know you grew up in Faribault when…”
I credited Brian Schmidt who posted the photo.
Photo loaded twice due to CT error.
I’ve added some more images to the Photos Section.
One is of the Rhumba Casino that preceded the Shangri-La Restaurant, but in the same building.
I just added a mid `30’s photo of the Booth Theater, which is the same building the current State Theater is in. Booth Theater should be added as the previous name to the State’s Overview.
Interesting that the giant ball signage spells out BOWLING in the circa 1940 photo, and TOWER in the late `40’s photo I just posted.
It is identified on the right in the 1940 photo, but I believe it is on the left. Did the bowling alley convert into the Tower Theater?
I just added a 1948 photo of the Rialto, courtesy of the Lincoln Land Facebook page.
I just added a 1952 photo of the Campus Theater.
Just posted a 1934 poster for the Sutton Theatre.
Spelling should be changed from “Theater” to “Theatre” in the Overview description.
Likely 1951 photo.
This ad is from 1926.
After some research it appears it originally opened as the Orpheum. Had a minor fire in 1912, then a major fire in 1920. Was rebuilt and remained the Orpheum at least through the 1920’s. It was later renamed the Rialto probably in the 30's, and finally the Rex in the40’s. Judging by the chronology of the photos I posted.
30's, and finally the Rex in the
1970 image above.
