This theatre has been multiplexed. If you look at the floor plan on their website it appears to have four screens now. Info up top should be changed accordingly.
THat says they hope to have two screens. There’s a big difference between planning to add one and hoping to add one.
My photos of it are at http://www.cinematour.com/tour/us/473.html from the day demolition began.
It closed in October 2010. The owners have been trying to sell it for years, but they are asking far too much for it.
Barnesboro is now known as Northern Cambria
AKA Perry Theatre, 115 S Liberty St.
Last Chance Gulch Street was formerly known as Main Street.
This reopened in November 2010 as the Denver FilmCenter.
Is this still closed?
@ken mc: I don’t think it is clearly a different theatre at all. In fact, I think it is most likely the same theatre in both pictures. By the time it became the Strand it has been remodeled and a wing of retail stores has been added, but it seems to be the same theatre. Plus, the telephone pole and mountain are in the same place in both photos.
Was it never demolished? News reports all say that Lafflines comedy club has been renovating the old Burr Theatre and is moving in this spring.
Should be listed as open.
According to drive-ins.com this closed in 2002.
Hosmer is over 200 miles from Castlegar. I would guess that it is a different Elk Drive-In that was located there.
This one appears to have been on the corner of 5th Ave and 7th St in Castlegar and closed around 1960 according to View link
Currently owned y Criterion Luxury Theatres (http://www.criteriontheatres.com).
CWalczak: You linked the the Criterion in Courtenay which has been demolished. The Duncan Criterion is at http://www.cinematour.com/tour/ca/435.html
CWalczak: Was there a second, separate Station Square Cinemas as well? CinemaTour has photos of a closed on at the same address as this one at http://www.cinematour.com/tour/ca/3064.html as well.
The Colonial closed in 1948 and the Bradford opened in 1949 according to View link
ken: That’s the Orpheum Theatre.
According to its website it opened in 1959.
I show an address of 133 W Main Street for this theatre. 63 E Main was the Grand.
The theatre was located on High Street. It caught fire in 1952, but is still listed as open in the 1955 FDY so either they fixed it up or the book was behind the times.

There are two screens according to their official website.
The Forge was never a cinema. It is a former funeral home that is now a live theatre.
Architect is Julian Millard (not Hillard).
The original Grand Theatre building is still there at 259 Main St.
