you were right i was looking at the wrong one sorry haha
Well theres a Flagship Cinemas Behind the Hampton Inn that we were staying at between Rockland&Thomaston and there was no plaza it just sat by itself but it was a Flagship Cinemas.
I would also like to add that the former location of the cinemas may be a Hanford’s
The theater is now located on the New County Road
Once again the Graphic theatre is already listed on cinema treasures
Um haha i don’t know if you know this but somebody else had already added that there was a Bijou in bangor that got destroyed by Urban Renewal unless there were 2 but i find that hard to believe
I do haha thank you for your information
I would put the function as vaudeville
pretty impressive for such a small theatre to be able to offer first run movies. Looks like it’d be a unique theatre to try to go to some time
sad to hear that this got burned most have been a nice theatre.
neat story SWFLguy, I’ve visited the site a time now and there and the screens are still standing along with the marque is still in shape.
Its in the same building that the paramount was
Kings Square cinemas is in a different Location Not Charlotte street
I was out a couple weeks of ago surveying the old drive-in to find out that there are but, some remains left. The old possible footings for the screen are still on site and the old electrical wiring is still standing maybe what powered the lights and concession stand.
Too bad no one has any pictures of the old drive-in.
It would be great if anyone had a picture of it maybe link it from flickr?
Google maps has a streetview and you can clearly see the old theatre if you type in the address 10 Mechanic St. Camden, ME
I’ve been to the Movie Magic and it wasn’t a half bad theatre especially for the price and being compared to the other local first run cinema in Bangor
Cinema Tour lists that the Strands address was 76 Main St. and listed it as Old Town, ME
I briefly saw the exterior of the building which was pretty amazing but, didn’t have a chance to peek inside and see the interior but, it looks as if it must be a pretty unique theater.
I read something about it was also the Paramount? as the building looks exactly the same as the Paramount.
I was up visiting Saint John and saw it’s sad state but, interestingly it was neat to see that all the old coming attraction signs were still standing and the marquee was still in Great shape. I’m wandering what the inside would like now and hopefully they don’t demolish but, make something of it.
In a bit i will post a link to some of the images i took of the theater
I was basically just ball parking the address because the streets have changed a little bit. Thanks for informing on the Style.
I read something that it originally started out as an 8 screen cinema and was around in the late 80’s up through the 90’s and then in the late 90’s early 2000’s it was transformed into a 10 screen cinema.
It used to be owned by Hoyts but, now seems to be owned by the Boston Culinary Group.
It’s also advertised to be the only cinema in Maine to offer closed caption movies
I was looking around the local antique store and purchase an Old Bijou Playbill with local advertisements and if anyones interested i can posts pictures on flickr and link it to hear
I found a 2009 Bangor Daily News Article that talked a lot about the old theaters around the Bangor Area and it mentioned the Nickel Theater being close by another theater the Gaiety which was in Norombega Hall.
It mentioned that the old owner of the Nickel theater was owned by the Keiths and offered Vaudville acts.
The Nickel theater had sold it’s millionth ticket in December.
Thats all I have to say but here’s a link to the full BDN article.
