Still open and showing first-run movies with the occasional foreign/art film. One of only two theatres on Virginia’s eastern shore that still show first-run films.
The Palace is mostly a community center with live concerts and plays, but still shows the occasional classic movie. The Palace has a balcony that is divided, as the projection booth is the middle of the balcony. Each side balcony seats approximately 30 people.

Chuck, the VAMS theater is inside the museum, so it was never a seperate commercial theater, although it does show the latest IMAX movies.
Chuck, no. Only movies related to the museum.
This theater was actually called the Towers Theatre, as it was located next to Towers Mall in Roanoke. It has been demolished, and a newer shopping center was put in its place.
Gator is part of JEB Little Creek Naval Base. There is no Google Street view of anything on the base.
Address given is miles off. Real street address is 1043 E. Main Street.
The Surfside was set off Highway 90 a bit, and the location isn’t quite close to anything. A few years ago, there was a sign on the site announcing a new high-end condo development. But the economy may have killed that project, and may have delayed the demolition of the Surfside.
The multiplex was part of the Little Creek East Shopping Center. It has been chopped up and new stores have taken over its place.
Spotted a sign posted on the Riverview today:
ALL BROKERS PROTECTED
That’s area code 757, by the way.
The ROSNA is for sale. A cloth sign is draped over the marquee saying:
TO BE RENOVATED
700 SEAT HISTORIC THEATER
ALL BROKERS PROTECTED”
That’s area code 757 if anyone is interested. One of the storefronts in the building is occupied by a restaurant.
The Ritz has a website now.
The Ritz is a community center and shows older movies. $1 to attend.
The Silver Screen is gone for good. Edgewater Village shopping plaza now has a buffet restaurant in the Silver Screen’s former location.
Current website for the Idle Hour (link needs to be updated):
More info and photos of the Ashland here:
The theater is “currently CLOSED due to repairs.”
Myspace page for the Ritz:
The Ritz seats 280 on the floor and 40 in the balcony.
According to the website, the Old Town is showing movies again.
The Lincoln has an official website. http://www.the-lincoln-theatre.org/
The Premiere is still not open. Owner is apparently finding new expensive problems with this old theatre. My impression is he is doggedly persistent, and will stick with it until all the repair work is complete.
