Can we get rid of these spammers? All they’re doing is taking up band width.

Trolleyguy commented about Michigan Theater on Oct 13, 2010 at 9:38 am

The Michigan was seen on the TV show “Detroit 1-8-7” last night. A cop meets with an informant in the structure and ceiling and wall details are clearly seen.

Trolleyguy commented about Theaters to be required to post calorie counts on Sep 21, 2010 at 9:17 am

I don’t think it’s government intrusion. Look at the back of any food package you might purchase and you’ll see the same thing spelled out. Those of us who have diabetes and other health issues welcome this kind of disclosure.

I’m not surprised at who the commander is. She has quite an impressive resume:

Even in the recession, this drive-in is doing good business

Here is a picture of the annex building which now has the only public entrance to the theater. http://tinyurl.com/2e33pj8

And this is the original entrance which is no longer in use other than for maintenance and as an emergency exit.

Sorry for the typo. That’s “American Pickers.”

Trolleyguy commented about El Dorado Theater on Jul 27, 2010 at 9:02 pm

This theater was recently featured on the “American Picers” show on the History Channel.

There were quite a few shots of the interior, showing the stage and the balcony still in place. The owner is divesting himself of a lot of the artifacts that are inside.

Trolleyguy commented about Theatres of Whitewater on Jul 13, 2010 at 7:02 pm

I don’t think so. There was a landscaping crew working on the grounds the day I took the pictures. The theaters and the Taco Bell restaurant that sits at the front of the property on the highway share a driveway and grounds maintenance.

The grant funds being sought for re-opening are not necessarily a sure thing, as this article points out.
