OMG, don’t let the main site go ANYWHERE.
Thanks, and all best wishes, forever and ever! :)
Another piece of lousy news. So sorry to hear this.
Second all of that! This is the kind of news we can use once in a while.
Judging by the picture, that County is one gorgeous theater.
Oh boy, would I love to get to some of that. Please keep us updated!
Sorry to hear this.
I’m sorry to say I’d been through there several times and noticed it, but never stopped to take a picture.
As of today, if you go to Bing Maps and choose Bird’s Eye view (it’s no longer on Aerial View which has been updated), you can see it clearly at the intersection of Forest Rd. and Boston Post Rd./Orange Avenue — especially in the image facing west.
Violation of FREE SPEECH??
Go for it! I wish you all the best.
From the looks of the building on Google and Bing, it must have been a really fine suburban theater.
I wish I could remember what I saw there while living in the area in 1985/86. If anyone can recall any particular movies exhibited there during those years, I’d sure appreciate it.
I didn’t know him, myself, but this is a shock nonetheless. Always appreciated his playing. Thank you, Peter — and for the links, as well.
I use adblocker, too, but disabled it and those links just don’t work. (I’m on Chrome and Win7.) I don’t search from there, so had never noticed.
Just a quick note of thanks for everything you guys do. I should take the time to keep with my own personal research and post more than I do, as this is an extremely valuable site to me, personally. Please do whatever you think best to keep it great.
I saw nothing to indicate that there was more than I was seeing…but it sure seems to end rather abruptly.
Terrible. Another Westwood humiliation.
It’s absolutely killing me not to go. I wish everyone a superb Expo.
In the anticipation leading up to Criterion’s release of a certain epic comedy, I’d like to commemorate that film’s roadshow presentation at the Sheridan, which I have always held wonderful memories of seeing at the tender age of 14. I especially cherish my having recalled a couple of the soon-to-be-cut scenes that indicate we were there within the first few weeks of the run.
IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD Theater: Sheridan Premiere: December 19, 1963 (Florida Premiere) Duration: 23 weeks Format: Cinerama (70mm) Hype: “The World’s Critics Go Stark Raving Mad! Mad! Mad! Mad!”

Mann’s Chinese, November 1974
Yesindeed. Always loved balconies, and I especially remember sitting up there at the Florida’s summer kids' matinees.
Thanks to a good friend who was way more aware than I about this new film, I saw it on several occasions at the State in Cleveland, once at the Summit in Detroit, and of course countless subsequent times in other venues over the years. The runs at the State and Summit were simply magnificent. I will never forget those experiences, or that incredible summer over which ‘2001’ loomed so large.
As always, thanks for the great research marking a notable anniversary and revitalizing some wonderful memories.
