Google street view of August 2012 shows the building still standing.(Barely)
t would appear that this theatre has been demolished.
It’s simply rude and distracting and shouldn’t be tolerated.
This theater stopped showing movies way before the 70’s. It was subsequently a drug store until abandonment and demolition.
The closing date of the 70’s given in the header is wrong. Bruce C’s picture has it right, 1951. I know, because I lived around there at the time.
This theater is probably closed. It does not appear on Regal’s website and Google Maps show a church at that address. An internet search fails to turn up this theater as well. Also, the phone has been disconnected.
The Sierra and Uptown Cinemas share the same website.

This theatre was mentioned last night (6/10/13) on the “American Pickers” TV show. A black and white photo of theatre was shown as well as a number of movie posters that had been displayed at it.
The Paramount’s marquee was featured prominently in a “Cold Case Files” episode about a robbery and killing in a jewelry store down the street from the theatre.
I’ve just uploaded a picture of this theater to the Photos section.
I’ve uploaded a new picture to the Photos section. The sign on the exterior of the theater still says “Movies 10.”
I’ve just added some new pictures to the Photos section. My previous ones were lost when Webshots shut down.
I uploaded 2 pictures in Photos section. One shows the current park at the old theater site, the other of its demolition in 1968.
According to the website, all the auditoriums now have digital projection.
Main Street has been constructed, so I was able to upload a current picture in the Photos section.
I just added an exterior picture of the entrance to this theater. There is no Google view because it is in the rear of the strip mall and faces a parking lot.
I have added 2 1920’s pictures in the photo section. Compare the upper cornice details to the modern photo and it is apparent that the building still stands.
I think it would be safe to list status as “demolished.”
This theater has been recently remodeled with a new ticket counter, concession stand, and fresh carpeting.
This place seems to be closed. The website link takes you to a Facebook page with no listings. The phone is disconnected.
If the Google view is accurate, this theater building is now long gone.
The above referenced news link requires a subscription to be read.
The tall blade sign of this theater is prominently featured in the opening scenes of the 2009 film “In the Electric Mist.”
It seems to me that 1890 is too early for a film to be shown. From the description, “A Summer’s Dream” was most likely a live play.
