Roger Katz commented about Bryant Theatre on Aug 15, 2017 at 10:42 am

Could this have been called the Arcadia Theatre during planning stages? Here’s an article that said the Arcadia Theatre would be opening in the Bush Terminal Building at 130 W 42nd St on Labor Day in 1921. I have found no further references to the Arcadia. Maybe it changed names and had its opening pushed back a few months.

rivest266: That would be the original Parsons Theatre, not this one which opened as the Grand in 1914.

Roger Katz commented about Showcase Cinemas Bridgeport on Jan 23, 2017 at 3:53 pm

The theatre across the way was built by Loews. Showcase Cinemas had been planning to build a theatre in the Danbury area. The two companies made a deal. In exchange for letting Loews have the Danbury area to themselves Showcase gained the theatre that Loews was building in Fairfield.

Do we know for sure if the Salvation Army building incorporates the old theatre? I was there yesterday and could not tell if it may be a completely new building.

Roger Katz commented about State Theater on Dec 8, 2016 at 7:48 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.

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.

Roger Katz commented about Towne Cinema on Dec 6, 2016 at 7:23 am

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.
