When doing a search the default is for currently operating ‘Open’ theatres. To see all theatres click on the ‘All Theatres’ button.

wolfgirl500:The information text in the heading is taken from The Billboard, March 21, 1908 edition. It lists nickelodeons across the USA, but is not fully comprehensive, only listing 3 in Youngstown, which I have added pages for on Cinema Treasures, other two being the Edison Theatre and the Luna Theatre.

The Tower Drive-In is listed in the 1952 edition of Theatre Catalog with 200 car capacity operated by Billy King. The Aitkin Drive-In is also listed but no mention of a Fox Drive-In.

In the 1953-1954 edition of Theatre Catalog the Tower Drive-In (now 400 cars( and the Fox Drive-In (600 cars) are listed as being operated by Consolidated Theatre out of Charlotte, NC.

The Cherokee Theatre is listed in 1926 with 500 seats, In 1927 and 1928 it is listed as the New Regent Theatre (500 seats), but not listed in 1929.

Ken Roe commented about Barnes Theatre on Dec 27, 2014 at 9:01 am

Having now some access to some more editions of Film Daily Yearbooks, the Barnes Theatre is first listed as open in 1933 (1,300 seats Allerton Avenue and Barnes Avenue). From 1934 – 1940 it is listed as (Closed), then disappears from future listings. Could it only have operated as a movie theatre for 1 year, then went over to live theatre use, or was it ‘mothballed’, never to reopen?

The 1,232-seat Allerton Theatre is listed as open during these years.
