It has been announced that this theatre and the others in the Sundance chain will be sold to Carmike for $36M. Carmike will be allowed to maintain the Sundance name, but will not be able to expand the name to its other theaters.
Cinema Detroit has now moved a few blocks away to a new location at 4126 Third Street. Website: http://cinemadetroit.com/ What has become of the Burton Theatre, I have no idea.
It appears that this theatre is no longer showing movies. The website is down and the phone goes unanswered. Only info on the web is for live theater performances.
The Star is currently installing power reclining seats to 5 of its auditoriums. Once this is completed, the remaining screening rooms will receive the upgrade, with the exception of the IMAX. A liquor license is also being sought to bring about the cinepub experience.
Actually, it would be a much shorter drive to Sault Ste Marie ON or Mackinaw City for Newberry residents to see a first run movie.

The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival sold this building to a developer in 2013 and is no longer using it as a venue. The Blade Magic show also moved out that year to a storefront operation further down Central Ave. It would be safe to say status is “closed.”
Facebook page is down, and no listing on the Chamber of Commerce site either. Seems to be closed.

Now closed. Story here: http://wnep.com/2014/12/30/scranton-movie-theater-going-dark/
The movie listed on the marquee was released in 1963, so the photo would have been taken at a later date than 1950.
Now operated by Earlann Theaters: Website: http://www.earlann.net/
According to the website, this theater is closed for renovations.
Phone not working and no movie times listed anywhere. Also, the June 2014 Google Street View shows the theatre for sale. Probably closed.
With Marcus opening the Palace in Sun Prairie and upgrading the nearby Point, this multiplex seems to be struggling. Was here for a matinee last week and was the only person in the auditorium. They are holding onto movies longer and also showing a mix of indie and Bollywood films. Never a good sign.
