Does anyone have a clue about condition of interior??
Just wondering,why were all the fine comments by the “Lost Memory” guy removed?? Sad.
I went there a couple times, mini multiplex,but only game in town. In a tiny mall. Mall still there,somehow.
From my many drives thru town,there is a brick building on main st,,that sure looks like a former theater .
If you care about this theater ,you should consider “joining”. The $150.00 level gives you marvelous perks. Go to the website.
It is such a tragedy ,such shortsighted stupidity,that Columbia threw away all the fine downtown theaters. This small remnant IS a wonderful asset to downtown and the community . It is a labor of love and an oasis in a desert. My wife and I,gladly contribute to this institution.
Amazing the theater still is intact.
Too bad the theater on the area of Ft.Moutrie,Sullivan’s Is.,SC,could not get same treatment.
Passed construction site last week. Our guided pointed it out as the former location of his fav. Theater. SO sad.
I passed theater last week. Clearly was a theater. Sad.
May be currently used by some kind of “church”.
Took a couple this afternoon.
What is current status,as all references to Orphic no longer operate.??
Attended screening of 3 INDIE documentaries in new space. A pretty good venue. The feeling of a REAL theater is a treat. Downtown Columbia has real potential.
Looks like nothing going on at present,from outside,ATLEAST. What an opportunity for an enlightened group to front an arts district in that few blocks,with two fine theaters,great old buildings to rehab and repurpose. There
are has some amazingly fabulous eateries,museums and other historical/cultural resources . I had never examined this city before this week and I was stunned at what potential this city possesses .
Got a tour last eve,of the balcony space. It will be so great when done. WE did our part with a contribution yesterday.Unlike the downstairs space,it is clear that this once was a REAL theater. The general mgr is enthusiastic and inspirational. THIS place is a real asset for the community. It is no Byrd,but still a treasure.
FABULOUS NEWS!!!! Sat empty for so long
This theater SCREAMS out for RE-USE.
I was in Nauvoo earlier this week. The hostess of the eatery pried open the plywood coverings of one of the theater doors and showed me the interior. Indeed,the theater is INTACT and could be re-upped,so to speak. As tourists flock in increasing numbers,to this astonishing town,there just might be a market for this ancient venue to live again.
I thought I had noticed that TITANIC was the last film.
All it takes is a stroll thru the google world to see what a nice place this was.
Miss Toes has found something very interesting. The Trenton/Warner needs more research.
In army days,it seated 500.
According to their website-should be changed to OPEN. This old classic came so close to being demolished,after escaping “condo conversion”,believe it or not.
Sitsa like a poor relation right close to Byrd.Still looks like a small theater.
