I’ll be co-hosting a photo workshop at the Victory Theatre in Holyoke, MA on June 27. The last two workshops we held at the theater sold out pretty quickly so if you’re interested get your tickets soon. A portion of the proceeds raised will be donated to the theater to help the restoration effort. We’ve raised over $1,600 so far this year!

No, thank you for clearing that up.
Mark – How sure are you about her name being spelled with an “a”? I’ve only seen Dornan used in captions, but I read an interview with her about her work with Loew’s Inc that spelled it Dornin.
That’s a damn shame.
The new owners of the New Regal/Avalon Theatre in Chicago are trying to reopen the theater as a performing arts center. They’ve launched a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter to raise the remaining $100,000 needed to open the theater.

I’m saying that person is wrong, and the auditorium is still there. You can see it clearly on google maps (dated September 2014) or just look up the job permits on the New York City Department of Building’s website. There are demolition permits, but they have not been approved yet, so nothing has been demolished yet.
The theater is still there. No construction work has started yet.
I’m not 100% sure but I seem to recall our tour guide mentioning that the projection room was stripped of all projection equipment.
It’s the correct address. It’s just the address of the auditorium.
Mark – Yes there is a community open house tour at the Kings on Feb 7th. You can find more info about it here: Open House at the Kings

Nope. That’s the Center/Woodbourne Theatre in Woodbourne, NY.
They don’t have a date yet because they are still trying to raise the funds for the restoration!
Thanks Doc! Another photographer and I are hosting a Photography Workshop at the theater next month. Here’s a link with some information about it: Everett Square Workshop
