Three photos as the Beacon uploaded: Memorial Day parade show theater with original marquee and vertical; 1941 scrap metal drive; 1961 marquee modification when Skouras took over management.
Came upon a note I had scribbled when doing some online research. In 1940 there was a major and costly renovation in which the theater was to have been remodeled and redecorated, new seats, screen and marquee and the lobby was to have been enlarged.
To offset the photo of the Freeport being demolished I’ve uploaded one during the construction phase.
Updated an exterior of the Grove to the east and the theater under construction in 1926. Still a lot to do. It didn’t open until 1928.
Additional photo uploaded.
With Toronto’s Cineplex Cinemas Yonge – Dundas only one behind at 24.
OMG The photos are breathtaking. I don’t know how I would react to actually be there.

Also managed to capture an ad for the Crystal in the 1911 Freeport High School Alumni Directory.
Uploaded the image to which I referred to almost five years ago. Oh, well. The Crystal is furthest left in this group of buildings. If you really enlarge it you can actually see “crystal” across the façade. Picture shows a fire further down the row of buildings. Probably the eventual fate of the Crystal.
Postcard image from broken link now uploaded to photos.
Additional night time entrance photo and interior image uploaded. What Spartan auditoriums.
Theater set to reopen April 10th. Guess the digital rental scheme worked out.
Photo of the Edwards as a garage; Edwards garage. Hence the name. And it’s the Main Street Garage meaning this picture was taken after the building had been moved from another part of town.
Additional exterior of current façade uploaded.
