Lightning struck the power pole feeding the theater today 9-6-2013 knocking out power to the theater and cancelling all shows.
What a beautiful theater!
I’d want to see films in their original Cinerama projection process on film not digital video projection.
Yes, it apparently was just a few days from reopening.
The theater was destroyed by an August 14, 2013 fire. :(
Too bad, not using speakers any more.
Looks like it was a nice theater.
Wow! Now that’s an auditorium! Look how huge the screen is. :)
Neat! An all Brenkert booth!
This is a run-of-the-mill 1980’s vintage theater if I recall correctly.
Are the speaker posts still there?
According to the theater’s Facebook page, the theater closed on February 3, 2013 and is now for sale.
Several broken and missing sections of neon on the theater’s sign.
Boy, all those restrictions sound like right here in Olympia, Washington. We must have gotten our city council from you guys.
Yeh what’s the deal with the field layout? Looks like a twin to me.
The font used for “Skyline” sure reminds me of the 1960’s. ;)
This picture of me was taken in 1987.
Officially converted to video projection today August 6, 2013.
The theater is in the middle of a 4 million dollar facelift and remodeling. It will also get a marquee for the first time in it’s life. I will get pictures when the project is done in a few months.
That article fails to mention Kodak has signed a contract with ALL the major studios to continue providing them with billions of feet of 35mm film over the next several years. The studios still must provide 35mm film prints to foreign countries!
According to this story in the Astoria newspaper, the Florence Cinemas closed July 14:
I’ve heard the theater closed last month.
Should now be listed as demolished. Here is a website about it:
Seems the theater has been replaced with a gas station now.
I’ve heard this theater isn’t doing very well business-wise.
Chuck1231: Not a lot happening theater-wise in the Pacific Northwest. I hadn’t commented much because there wasn’t much for me too comment about. However, I see a few people have started to add theaters I know things about so now I’ve got something comment on. ;) I’ve seen some of the pictures of closed Oklahoma drive-in theaters and I’ve been able to comment on the projection and sound equipment in some of those theaters. Thank goodness some of those brave souls who venture onto the property of closed drive-ins to get pictures.
