Could this be the Center Theatre, located on Center Street in Sebring? After being closed for many years, the Center has been restored and is open as a children’s theatre.

What a great write up on the Palace, and the photo section is fantastic. I saw all of the Cinerama pictures at the Palace as well as IT’S A MAD, MAD WORLD and 2001. I lament its passing.

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.

I agree with Patsy. What a disgusting use of a fine old theatre.

irvl commented about Melbourne Outdoor Theatre on Dec 7, 2011 at 11:58 am

Yes, Ken, I visited your family several times when you lived behind the drive-in. It was probably a location not conducive to making friends when you were a kid. Right?

Great news! Good luck. I love to see old closed theatres reopened. When it’s convenient, come check out the Garden Theatre in Winter Garden, which reopened over three years ago.

I spent many hours at the Miracle as a moonlighting projectionist. Good times. I got plenty of exercise walking between the two booths and keeping five schedules going. I hate to see her fade away.
