Much like the vintage and demolished Oriental Theatre in Portland Oregon. Check it out.
Art deco handsome theatre. Curves are so beautiful.
Dramatic glass block structure. Must have been a handsome theatre.
Beautiful and lovely vintage theatre. Window treatments are great.
Interesting theatre moderne style. Midcentury modern. Could be currantly in style. Good it is still around.
Yea dramatic to the max. This theatre is of course a classic. Check out the 5th Avenue theatre Seattle. Restored and also dramatic. The most elaborate chinese.
Marquee is so retro and dramatic. Brickwork is lovely. Great pic.
What a great building. Too bad the theatre modern streamline style was ruined. Sign is priceless.
Beautiful all around. Ceiling especially. Lighting is elaborate and great proscenium arch too. What a treasure!
Elaborate and elegant still. A treasure for Jersey City.
One of the most beautiful proscenium designs in the history of the movie palace. The whole place a masterpiece. I am sure Gloria Swanson shed a few tears when this place came down.
The ceiling dome is beautiful and the lighting too. Buildings like these should always be preserved for the ages.
Proscenium is elaborate and lovely here. All else too.
Art deco handsome auditorium. Great organ grills and proscenium. Ceiling is handsome too.
A newer very hightech theatre in Seattle is the Majestic Bay in Ballard. Ice blue verticle opening waterfall style curtain that opens twice at the start of each film presentation. The 2 theatres above the main auditorium have no curtain. This theatre is very elegant compared to any other movie theatre in Seattle. I miss the concept of using a curtain. It is like the art of tea. It is a new built from foundation theatre.
Good design in redo. Art moderne look. Great lighting. Similar to the old Crest in Seattle. My local theatre of choice in the 50’s. 2ND AND 3RD AND THEN 1ST RUN FILMS. Still going strong.
Classic and handsome theatre. Hope it retains this look.
Incredible art deco interior with such great detail.
This is so wonderful. To save the great art deco interior for the bookstore. Classy approach. Most retail business would not be this sensitive to an historic building. Colors and design inside is quite handsome.
Ceiling treatment is so art deco. Rounded corners and looks like indirect lighting. Subtle design.
Great art modern exterior. Post art deco. Box office is wonderful and marquee too. So classic.
Handsome interior design. Should restore this theatre back to the original designs.
Could double as a church on sundays.
I hope the rounded box office was not changed. Very retro and handsome. Line of kids right out of Father Knows Best or Leave It To Beaver. Great pic. Chrome palace!
I would like to see the interior of this small town gem. It is obviously in need of repair but has a lot of style anyway.
