My mistake. I ment (as of today March, 19. 2011)
The Hollywood Theater will reopen. Has been closed for the past year plus.
The Marquee (as of today March, 19. 2010) states,,,
I will provide details soon.
I documented the restoration of the Hollywood
back in 2006-2007. I shot hundreds of images.
I created a Qtime movie of what the Hollywood
looked like before being remodeled.
it has music
Here is the Hollywoods new web page
I remember the treehouse!!! Was that mid to late 70’s?
To lost memory, Thanks for your back up.
I was actually there the night it closed. If you dressed in 50’s attire or drove in with a classic vintage car you got in for free. I drove my 58 Edsel. The movie was Rocky 4.. Eye of the tiger.
Too bad. It was only open for 14 months. Parking was always a problem.
If you all remember the Hollywood, the old Denis theatre in Mount Lebo is currentely
this is to KRYPTON COWBOY, have you seen my hollywood movie on you tube?
I would like to add to hollywood theater web site. let me know.
If you are interested, I recently posted a first draft movie of the preservation of the Hollywood.
I’ve been photographing the work on the theater since it began last year. The external part of the movie is finished, the interior shots i’m still working on. Go to www.youtube.com and do a search for douglaswbrendel. Please leave a comment.

Neon marquee damaged (broken) by falling ice.
As of Friday March 16th finishing touches are being made. The new marquee looks GREAT lit at night. I have new images of new marquee,
in my last comment i mentioned that the new marque looks sharp. but once it was installed on the front of building, i noticed that you can’t read it. too light for daytime. i have not seen it lit at night yet. new images available.
New marque was delivered this morning, Friday March 2nd. Looks sharp.
I have images if any one is interested.

Work is comming along, major electrical problems. No seats as of yet. Just started painting the ceiling and recovering the walls. I have some interesting shots in the projection room, basement etc. Also found an old movie poster, and an old refreshment stand popcorn sign. Any offers?
May open in April, if lucky.
An update. Theater was gutted, balcony seats ripped out and thrown in a dumpster. Old Hollywood sign also destroyed. Too bad. My friend Clint “MAN” had his first kiss there (with a breeder) back in 74.
About a month ago all the floor seats were quickly ripped out and thrown into dumpsters in pieces. Is there any demand for old theater seats? The balcony is still filled with old seats,
which will most likely destroyed this week (oct 23-27). I offered the contractor a way to raise some money by selling the seats, but he was not interested.
If any one is interested, I recently took some photos inside the old HOLLYWOOD “gutted out"
One lone seat remains on the floor. Nice shots of an old local favorite.
In my day, the early 70’s, the HOLLYWOOD was well known to admit under age kids in to R rated movies. I remember seeing The Exorcist back in 73, I was 12, plus many many more.
E-mail me if you would like to see some images from inside the HOLLYWOOD as it looks now,
