Thank you for adding the historical information.
My Mom decided it was a good idea to take me there to see “The Fly”. It was actually a terrible idea. I was scared to death.
Woohoo! 4 pictures uploaded!!
Originally the Downs Theater. I remember seeing movies on the marquee like “Common Law Cabin” and “Mud Honey”. :–)
The theater was located in the left side of the building. A small shop sat in the center and the right side was Prestigiacomo’s Restaurant. Great food.
Our entire school was given free passes for the Dawn’s grand opening. I think “Jack the Giant Killer played.
Now it’s a strip joint…
Apparently not one photo exists of this theater. This just kills me.
I saw “The Horse Soldiers” there it around 1959. The building had a facade covered with 100’s of mirrored pieces. It was pretty run down when I was there. I remember seeing it standing until the mid-70’s.
Please, any photos? It was renamed Cinema West (I think) in the 70’s.
Here’s another shot
