2803 Brewerton Road is the address. Plans are in the works to demolish the theatre and build a hotel on the site.

It appears this theatre could not afford the upgrade to digital and closed in summer of 2012.

The Strand Theatre in Seymour, Connecticut closed at the end of December. Run properly it could easily turn a profit. A big part of their problem was they were only running three shows per week (Friday and Saturday evening, Sunday afternoon). If they were open all day on Saturday and Sunday and listed showtimes on commonly used services the Strand would make money.

This is a screen capture of a photograph I took in 2003 and has been appropriated without my permission.

There is a sign in the window that says “Closed for Renovations” but I don’t believe this is true. I think this theatre is closed permanently. None of the other signs in the window have been updated since October (which must be when the theatre closed). All the posters and standees in the lobby are for movies from back then, the theatre’s Facebook page has disappeared, and the movie hotline phone number just rings and rings.

The Strand has closed as the town has pulled out as the operator. The final movie was “It’s A Wonderful Life” on December 15, 2013. The theatre hosted live community show on December 21, 2013 and is now dark as the Knight of Columbus who own the building ponder its future.

It is true that it does not operate as a theatre in the traditional sense. However, during the summer they show movies once per week on the screen and charge admission. To me that still qualifies as open.

Roger Katz commented about *** Comments and Behavior On This Site *** on Dec 6, 2013 at 8:17 pm

What about adding some kind of link on each theatre’s page that says something like “Make Corrections” which people would be able to click and send corrections (or what they think is a correction) to a Cinema Treasures staff member for review? Then people do not need to make a post about it publicly at all. Also, it streamlines the corrections process. There are theaters I have commented on as being closed or open, for example, that have the incorrect status on here and years later nothing on the page has changed to reflect updated information because no staff member ran across my comment. Adding a corrections link would help in that way as well.

Roger Katz commented about Movie theater seating says something about your personality on Oct 31, 2013 at 2:06 pm

I sit towards the front, about 1/3 of the way from the screen. If I am stuck in a theatre with stadium seating I make sure to sit in the non-stadium part, even if it means being too close to the screen.

Roger Katz commented about Concord Theater on Oct 27, 2013 at 7:08 pm

jaboschen is right. The lobby building and auditorium both still stand. You can see it on the Google Maps overhead view and street view. Endicott Furniture, as shown in the old photo above, is still next door to the theatre. From the Google Street view you can even see the writing “Concord Theatre” on the sidewalk of the entryway to the former theatre.

The theatre was across from the library. It was demolished. It was wider than the apartment building that is now there,

Roger Katz commented about Going to the movies has changed for the better since '80s on Mar 16, 2013 at 12:39 pm

Definitely better back then. Very few single screen theatres still exist and it is nearly impossible to find one with a balcony anymore. I can’t stand stadium seating because it is so far from the screen, so I typically do not go to any newer cinemas.

Roger Katz commented about Alamo Drafthouse Market Place on Mar 12, 2013 at 6:34 pm

This cinema is not closed. It was taken over by City Base Cinema and will eventually become an Alamo Drafthouse.

Not sure what you mean exactly whether it was a physical problem or what. It’s hard to get a good shot because of the elevated train tracks in front. I was permitted to access the inside of the theatre, though.

rsalters: There is no Main Street in Adams. There was a previous theatre called the Atlas Theatre on the site of the Adams Theatre prior to its construction 1938. The Photoplay Theatre down the street was at one time known as the Adams Opera House and thus may have also been called the Adams Theatre at one point as well.

Now home to a golf driving range called the New Moon Drive-In Range (get the pun?). Address is given as 4200 Gerstner Memorial Boulevard.

By the way, the function says concerts but it should be live theatre.
