Port City Music Hall is not showing movies its now a Concert hall it has not shown movies for a long time
When I lived in St Pete Florida back in 1971 I went here a lot and if I remember they used to run Marx Brother movies
I drove by the old Norway Drive in Today empty field and up for sale
Sad news i had friends that where in Bar Harbor two weeks ago they told me the Criterion has closed.
Awesome wish the Roxy was still there i would love to walk around inside
Looks like Desi in the middle with the white jacket on.
What year did the Waltham close? i dont remember it.I grow up in Waltham maybe before my time.
I used to go to the central sq as a kid.I lived in Waltham at the time.
I hear the Saco drive in is up for lease.
When i moved to Maine in 1977 i went to this Drive in just about every week end.After it closed in 1986 they took the two screen down and the drive in just sat there until 2003.Now there is a car wash and a hot dog fast food restaurant.
Does anyone have any pics of the inside this theatre?
The city of Boston had some big theatres.Growing up in near by Waltham Mass i can remember taking the T into boston on Saturdays with buddies from school to go to the movies.Those old theatres where so big and so nice.The list is to long to name them all.But i loved getting up Saturday and meeting my buddies and taking the subway in town.I left Waltham Mass and moved to Florida and i came back to live here and i took my frist trip down town Boston.I could not beleave my eyes most of the Theatres are gone.I waish sometimes i never went back to see the places i spent alot of my young life.I guess things change and when you go back.Its not the same.I did go to the Publix theatre many times when i was young.I loved it so big and just a great place to watch a movie.Atleast we can still remember in our mines that we did enjoy The publix and all the theatres that where in the city of Boston Mass.
Anyone have any pics of this Theater? I know where this Theatre was
but have never seen any pics.
The Empire Theater is long gone.The last name for this theater was the paris cinema.It was torn down around 1981 or 1982.Now where the theater was is a parking lot.
Chuck 1231 when the state theatre started showing porn movies they
made a 2nd screen in the balcony.Thats why in the pic it says state 1 and state 2.When they restored the state theatre that screen was removed during that time.Its a One screen theatre like it was before it was a porn theater.You should find out the facts before you make your comments.
