I was wondering why they were letting the marquee fall apart and go dark and leave graffiti all over the building, now I know. With this closing the nearby Jackson 3 might be worth reopening.

So much money spent and then nothing, I was thinking about it since the King’s reopening

Is this closed totally or is the church having services here? What a damn shame after all the renovations that it could not sustain itself.

What awesome signage and to think now how AMC makes the outside of their locations dark and marqueeless.

I believe the church added a balcony that the theater never had

The theatre stopped showing movies in the 50’s and the place sat empty 20 years.

I don’t know if others feel like I do but the number one thing for me would be a massive screen. Something so big you can’t duplicate it at home. There was a reason in the 50’s for Cinemascope & Cinerama. Even IMAX is tiny now.

It is dark and dreary and no longer looks like a movie theatre

A vintage picture of the theatre open has to exist somewhere

Nyer OMG you took the words out of my mouth. I said the same thing about GWTW 75th anniversary. Ho hoopla, no big celebration like for the 50th. I have been trying to find out if the showing yesterday was like the Wizard of Oz showings where all they did was project a DVD. The movie theatre business is DEAD and buried, any theatrical showings are just adertisement for the home DVD release.

The marquee is lit up with a for lease sign but I guess this is going to go retail :(

To me not advertising movies on the marquee is the stupidest idea I have ever heard. Why give up free advertising?

Now that the Fantasy has been renovated its going to be another nail for the Lynbrooks coffin.
