Wonderful ceiling and wall design. Roman heads done in plaster on the front of the balcony. Well designed up close balcony in relation to proscenium and movie screen. Cinemascope installed in the 1950’s I believe. A very large screen I recall. I saw many films here into the 1980’s. First run films always until it was closed.

Like something out of a fantasy castle. Such a tragedy it was demolished.

Nice exterior and marquee. Looks very elegant and stylish. Much more than the present average new theatre or multiplex.

Great art deco lighting still being used to this day. Theatre is as popular today as in the 20’s.

Great vintage theatre and almost in the original condition. Original curtain had to be removed for cinemascope years ago. I have seen many a film here since the 1950’s and continue seeing them in 2015. Digital now and one of the longest runs in the country.

The new facade is an improvement. Color and an art deco style lower treatment. Doors are similar to old ones but fresher. Good job and not tacky.
