If you now own this theatre, what are you planning to do with it?
If 35mm film comes off their logo, how long before it disappears from their theatres too?
411 South Street? Google Maps puts that address in the middle of the Arboretum.
CAPA are good folks, who got their start by saving the historic Ohio Theatre downtown back in 1969. They even have a little experience in movie exhibition, with the Ohio’s summer film series.
Same bank branch as is there today (now Citizens Bank)? Quite a handsome building in its own way.
It says “The previous owner had planned to demolish the theater and replace it with a parking lot.” Not the current owner.
Emerson College did not renew Broadway in Boston’s lease for the Colonial Theatre, according to this Boston Globe article. It’s not clear what Emerson intends to produce or bring into the Colonial next season. Seems to me they already have their hands full with the Cutler Majestic and Paramount, so I find this decision puzzling.
How will the theatres stay open if people don’t know what is playing in them?
No ads in the Globe for any of the current or former Patriot Cinemas. I checked Friday’s and Sunday’s papers which are the most likely days for movie advertising.
A Facebook group: Save the State Theatre
Patriot Cinemas did not renew their lease on the Cameo in Weymouth and the Mill Wharf in Scituate. Bret and Michelle Hardy started a new company, South Shore Cinemas, to run these two theatres as of January 1. Today’s Globe South section has an article about them:
Cinematic revival: Coupleâ€™s love of movies inspired them to take over two-screen theaters
The Mill Wharf Cinemas' new website is: View link
The Cameo’s new website is View link .
Where? Can you link to its page here (or elsewhere)?
New Nickelodeon is not listed here at CinemaTreasures. Do you know anything more about it? (Was there an ‘Old Nickelodeon’ too?)
This was demolished last Thursday to make way for a Stop & Shop supermarket. The Chelmsford Independent posted a short news article and a video.
Somewhere I think I read that today’s Chandler Inn (once called the Diplomat hotel) is a remaining piece of the old Castle Square Hotel.
Circuit City has been defunct for several years; has another store replaced it at this site?
When it was called the Donnelly Memorial, who was Donnelly?
When it became the Star Cinema the main entrance was moved to Essex Street, where it remains today (though the doors are now papered over).
Why did they need to seal off that balcony in order to convert to Cinerama?
I don’t understand your comment.
Also, in downtown Boston, the RKO Boston has sat empty since the mid-1980s. It was subdivided before it closed, but I’m not sure into how many screens. It is the only remaining downtown Boston theatre that awaits reuse, as all others have either been restored, converted to other uses, or demolished.
The 12-screen Assembly Square Cinemas in Somerville have been vacant since January 2007.
The Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA does this, but only for members. (It’s not a very large theatre.)
