Do they still operate any speakers?
From KXRO radio on March 14th:
The Aberdeen City Council heard from many members of the public on both sides of the issue of the closing of the D&R Theatre and what the city can do to help keep businesses in Aberdeen.
The public spoke for over an hour collectively and covered a broad spectrum of issues that they are hoping the city can help with business.
Aberdeen City Councilwoman Kathi Hoder said that the city council was just as surprised about the closing as everyone else was.
According to newspaper accounts from March 3 through March 7 this year (2013), the theater is closed as well as the other stores/eateries in the building. A wooden wall has been erected around the theater building to keep out bums. One of the stories mentioned workers removing the seats. However, the theater’s website is still showing business as usual and selling tickets to shows.
I wonder why he did not try to run movies, at least once in a while?
I just saw the story on The Daily World’s website. What a pity. It was a nice theater.
Did your projectors go to the Rodeo Drive-in Theater in Port Orchard/Bremerton? I remember seeing red, green, and blue colored Brenkert projectors there at the Rodeo.
Steve Swanson, Arthur Allen, the late Carl Cook, and myself have all photographed this theater over the years.
Now converted to video projection March 2013.
That’s sad. I have purchased all his books over the years and they are nothing short of EXCELLENT. I still refer to pictures in those books!
Now fully converted to video projection and will re-open for the season on March 1, 2013.
As Galaxy Theaters found out, converting to video projection will not bring in more customers.
Judging by the projection booth pictures, they were operating Brenkert model BX-60 projector heads on top of RCA 9030 sound heads.
Still temporarily closed and the theater has new owners. Previous owner Kingsley Hall passed away in August of 2012.
It was known as the “Your Twin” drive-in theater. Home Depot now occupies the site.
More security cameras would help, especially outside the exit doors to see who might be coming in.
Should be listed as demolished.
I understand Bill Gates donated a significant amount of money to this theater. He attended this theater as a child.
The screen was pretty big.
The marquee when it was called the Warners Theater is absolutely amazing.
The murals painted on the walls of the lobby are absolutely stunning!
This old platter was converted with a retrofit kit to use Strong platter drop-in removable control plates.
Big screen television projection kills another theater. :(
The studios/distributors still will be making 35mm prints for foreign distribution.
Looks like they had SPECO “CBX” in-car speakers.
I wonder if the D. Moseley is related to the projectionist Earl Moseley who wrote the autobiography, “The Reel Mose” about 20 years ago? Earl worked drive-ins and indoor theaters as projectionist.
