The corner building is the actual theatre…in the old photo you can see the end on that building on the left….the main building in the old photo is now part of the loft theatre…before that it was a department store….not sure if the structure is original. It was probaly wood, the current building is concrete.

Garygadjet,

I too am very interested in Theatres of Dayton, OH….I have searched high and low for photos of all the great theatres that use to be here….in particular interior photos…I cannot find anything on the Keiths, Colonial, State, Strand or the Lowes…I have searched the local history room, Montgomery Co. Historical Society and local newspapers…nothing..Would you be interested in sharing your collection? I can be contacted at …Thanks

In reference to a previous comment about the movie The Majestic…I recall seeing a behind the scene feature that showed how they built the theatre and other buildings in the movie….I can’t seem to find that feature anymore on the DVD. Does anyone remember this and know where to find it?
