Nice to see the NRHP designation in 1993.

That is wonderful news on Easter Sunday! I recall when I first came to town and saw that corner in 2003..knowing that a great theatre building was there waiting to be restored. Thanks “ncmark” for your recent post and for keeping us all updated. I hope to see the Charlotte Ballet perform on the Carolina Theatre stage someday.

Such a shame to see photos of a once great movie theatre.

This theatre was patronized by Dean Martin who grew up in an Italian family in Steubenville. I learned this fact while reading a book about Dean Martin authored by his daughter, Deana.

So very sad that all theatres except the Florida Theatre still stands on Forsyth which was once “The Great White Way” with many theatres. And to learn that the theatre architect, Roy Benjamin’s home on Riverside was demolished is truly a crime. Benjamin built a theatre in Lake Worth FL which still stands today!

Two theatres for one parking garage is not a good trade off!

So nice to know this theatre has been preserved as it will always have a personal connection to Elvis.

Great to see a recent post on this theatre designed by Michael DeAngelis. What a pleasure it was to meet the grandson, Mark in 2014!

Will try and contact someone with the historical society in the town to see if I can find out anything… particularly when the Wurlitzer was removed and where it is today!

Does Wilmington have any historic theatres still in existence and in operation?

Such a shame that only a facade exists though the citizens tried to save the theatre.

Can’t believe this nor how the Adams looks! Is anything being done to restore these historical sites?

How in the world can a theatre like this end up in this deplorable condition? Didn’t the locals realize what they had?

We appreciate Cinema Treasures and always will as its the go-to place on the internet to learn about old theatres especially the ones being restored with tender loving care by theatre minded folks. I tour many theatres each year and always mention Cinema Treasures. Thank you Ross, Patrick and Ken.

Such a shame this theatre and many others are either gone or closed..been reading about the Manor, the Bailey, the Ritz and the Colony.

The dome is exactly like the restored dome in the Hollywood Theatre/Gowanda NY.
