It is pretty clear from looking at the Google images that the Annapolis Summer Theatre building was never a movie theatre. This is confirmed by looking at http://www.kilduffs.com/RTA.html which shows photos of the former Republic, gives the address, states it was demolished a few years ago, and shows what is there today.
er thats 329 S Broadway
I show an address of 329 N Broadway for this theatre in the 1955 FDY.
This has been renamed the Romance Theatre.
That is not this Westville Theatre, which is demolished. The previous Westville Theatre was also known as the West Rock Theatre and was just down the road at 827 Whalley Avenue. See my photos of it at http://www.cinematour.com/tour/us/35275.html
I’m not sure the Union and the Wellfleet are the same. they are both listed in the 1944 FDY, although the Union is designated as closed.
The Prospect is listed as a portable theatre in the 1944 FDY.
CineSister: you sure about that? The blog at http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/2011/10/29/did-you-know-little-art-cinema-vasa/ implies that he attended a movie there recently.
Is this building really the Congress Theatre or is it some other unknown theatre? The address I have for the Congress was 328 Broadway, but the building above clearly shows an address of 260 Broadway.
Phone number is disconnected. It looks like it has closed.
Is this really demolished? It seems on Bing Maps that there is a theatre at that location.
Located at approximately 372 Holdredge Avenue, the drive-in is now parking for the Big Horn County Fairgrounds.
This theatre reopened as the Seneca Queen Theatre with live productions in 2009, but closed down again in 2010.
This is not demolished. It was located at 1123-1125 Main St and is now home to Hanna’s Oriental Rugs & Gift and another shop called Christmas. The theatre was divided down the middle to form the two retail spaces.
You can find a good article with a photo of the building at http://archives.mountaintimes.com/mtweekly/2006/0928/moving_picture.php3
This closed in July 2010 and is now a church.
This is now called Whaler’s Wharf Cinema. http://www.whalerswharfcinema.com/
Currently for sale for $469,000
I’d consider them open. http://www.ritzybor.com
I’ve seen elsewhere that it opened on Christmas Day 1950.
Why is there no street view for this theatre?
I just went to the Bijou today to see some old Chaplin films. The theatre was gutted and rebuilt, but some old features such as the proscenium remain. This could be a great addition to downtown Bridgeport. My only problem was the parking is pricey. It cost me $7 to park in the garage across the street. BTW, the permanent seats are not in yet, but hopefully will arrive soon!
Status should be changed to closed as it went dark on December 31, 2010.
You heard incorrectly.
The owners of the building have been searching for an operator – so far with no success as they are asking for far too much in rent.
I have to be skeptical that this will ever get built. If you go to Spotlight Theatres website you’ll see press releases for two theatres (Loganville and Union City, Georgia) that apparently were enver built.
Now owned by the Digiplex Destinations chain.
