Tinseltoes, the only thing that I could find on the Watersedge Theatre was that it was operating in the 1950’s and was located at 7910 Dundalk Ave., Dundalk, MD.
raysson,I think you are way off on your seat count. If you split an auditorium that had 625 seats its not going to increase the seat count by 312. The auditorium was split and probaby each auditorium after the split seat 312 which would still keep the seat count arouynd the original 625.
For the current view just click on the View Address On Google Maps to the right of the header and you won’t need to copy and paste.
I can understand why Don got confused with this photo since there were three different American Theatre sites.
If you click on View Address On Googler Maps in the header it will take you to the location.
Google mapping don’t recognize the Eastgate Shopping Center, if you drop the shopping cneter and just use the address it maps okay.
The Cascade Drive-In was featured on the NBC Nightly News tonight as well as drive-ins in general.
This single scren ozoner parked 625 cars.
The architecture and style of the KC Orpheum was very similar to the Orpheum Theatre in St. Louis. Same architect. The orpheum in St. Louis is still in operation.
If you look at the aerial both the address in the header and the address that jwmovies is incorrect. You can see the footprint of the drive-in by using the google hybrid and you will also see the water build and the marshy land that Aaron was talking about. The entrance was north of North Ave. on N. Columbine.
There are a lot of drive-ins not losted on CT but when it comes to a small town theatre or drive-in there is very little info available on them.
Tony DiCarlo went from the Rio Theatre when it closed to the Granada Theatre on the south side of the city. After St. Louis Amusement folded Tony went on to manage several Mid-America Theatres including the Bevery, Manchester 1 & 2 and the Brentwood.
This theatre is seen in the backround for the mens testostarone commercial.
Randy, you should post your photo to the photo section on CT. The Googlemobile jumps all over the place when you try moving the curser not giving a look at the building at all.
Car capacity was listed at 200.
The Riviera Theatre opened as the Majestic Theatre.
Steve, I saw what you are taling about in the aerial but as I mentioned on your facebook page, I am in St. Louis for the summer and my book is at my condo in HI. Will be there with my sons and family the first two weeks of Juy and will see what I can find. Also while we are talking about drive-in’s in Edinburg, I have notes that state there was a Pan Amm Drive-In in Edinburg on E. University (SH 107) that opened in the early 1950’s and was demolished in 1981. Originally a single screen later twinned with a car capacity of 1379. Do You know anything about this one. It is not listed on CT.
If the State Theatre and the Penn Theatre were the same here is a newspaper clipping of the Penn Theatre
The Palms was located at N. 10th and Nolana. Steve, I am in St. Louis for the Summer and my book is still at my condo in HI. My three sons and family will be back in Hi. the first two weeks of July and I will check on the drive-ins for you then. There was also a Valley Drive-In located on Hwy. 83 in McAllen, TX. Closded sometime in the early 2000’s, single screen 500 car capacity. It is not listed on CT either.
raysson, why was this duplicated in the first place instead of making corrections in the comment section of the original listing?
Shouldn’t this be listed as the Penn Theatre with an AKA State Theatre. Penn was the last operating name.
The corrections should have been made on this listing since it was listed long before the other. Ken can correect the header and add comments that are not already listed on this page. raymond and raysson seem to be the same person.
“Three Murderesses” released in 1959.
