Roger Katz commented about State Theater on Dec 8, 2016 at 5:48 pm

Despite what was claimed in any article, the Islamic Center building was not the State Theatre. It was, indeed, the building next to the State Theatre shown in the old photo. The Islamic Center’s address is 14 W 7th. The new building after the vacant lot if 26 W 7th. Therefore 20-24 W 7th is the vacant lot which is where the State used to be.

The church next door has a number of 636, so this theatre would have been approximately 630.

Roger Katz commented about Deloraine Winchester Theatre on Dec 6, 2016 at 4:48 pm

This theatre hosted movies at least through 2014. You can see the 2013 Google street view when it was showing the movie “The Heat”. It is now a live music theatre known as the Deloraine Winchester Theatre.

According to the article at http://westenddumplings.blogspot.com/2011/10/aagaard-brothers-in-brandon.html the Towne Cinema was the same building as the old Oak Theatre, which opened way back in 1930. It has been demolished.

Was this located at 649 Lowell St? The building there appears it could have been a cinema.

Roger Katz commented about Gem Theatre on Aug 13, 2016 at 3:28 am

The 1935 Lyndonville directory lists this theatre as being on Elm Street. In fact the building at 48 Elm looks like a former theatre. Can anyone confirm this was the Gem?

This theatre still remains, or at least the lobby building does. It is on the corner of South Cedar Street and East 8th Street.

Roger Katz commented about Riviera Theatre on Jul 18, 2016 at 8:51 am

The Riviera burnt down. The organ probably went with it.

Roger Katz commented about Peotone Theater on Jul 15, 2016 at 10:44 am

Using Bing’s overhead view it appears that 114 N Second St is a more accurate address than 216.
