The Plaza Theatre is now owned by the Orlando Philharmonic. It is slowly being rehabbed, but in the meantime, concerts by the orchestra and booked events are being hosted there. Thank you, FloridaBoy54 for your insider information on this theatre.
I just posted a picture that shows the Vogue before a new marquee and other features of the building were installed.

The Princess Theatre is closed and the building is being advertised for sale.
The building which housed the Lyric Theatre has now been beautifully renovated in a period style. Upstairs, in the space that was once the theatre, are the offices of R. C. Stevens Construction, plus several other businesses.

This theatre is now known as the Wayne Densch Center and hosts live performances.
The Cameo’s light bulb lit sign has been replicated and is mounted on top of the building. This project was a joint effort by Jorge Boone, the building’s owner, and the Orlando City Council. See photos section on this page.
You’ve done a fabulous job, Michael. Thank you for creating CINEMA TREASURES. I check it almost everyday. It is a true web treasure!
Thanks for posting this. The Roxy must be a virtually forgotten theatre. Excellent picture!
The Garden Theatre has been a huge success story. Since opening six years ago, several hundred thousand people have been through its doors. It is currently featuring HAIRSPRAY, a live performance, that is so good that it shouldn’t be missed.
The Cameo’s building has undergone an extensive renovation and is now occupied by “SNAP,” a photo gallery.
Please see the photos section for photos of the interior at grand opening, and a c.1930s picture of the Grand its ushers.
