RSM3853 commented about Oak Village Theater on Sep 1, 2015 at 6:41 pm

The picture above was taken during the 4th week that the Oak Village was open…July 17-23, 1963. The theater opened on June 26, 1963 with Walt Disney’s “The Miracle of the White Stallions”.

RSM3853 commented about Sam's Place One and Two on Aug 9, 2015 at 7:27 pm

The Pittsburgh Aldine was an old Loew’s theater which later was renamed the Nixon. It was Pittsburgh’s home for stage productions on tour from Broadway as well as a number of roadshow films. “The Sound of Music” played there for over 2 years.

RSM3853 commented about Keith's Theatre on Jul 9, 2015 at 10:39 am

The last first-run film I can find for the Keith’s Theater is the Rock Hudson-Leslie Caron comedy “A Very Special Favor” which opened the week of August 18, 1965 and played for two weeks.

RSM3853 commented about Beachwood Theatre on Jul 2, 2015 at 1:27 pm

My family visited Rehoboth Beach August 12-15, 1964. I think the Beachwood was showing “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” with Debbie Reynolds and Harve Presnell. I wanted to see it but was told “we’d see it when it came to the local theater at home,”

RSM3853 commented about Schenley Theater on Jan 13, 2015 at 4:06 pm

The Strand Theater in Oakland closed during the week of June 28, 1978. The last movies there were “The Great Smokey Roadblock” and “Dixie Dynamite”.

RSM3853 commented about Melrose Theatre on Oct 29, 2014 at 11:02 am

Not sure yet when it closed earlier for a spell or for some years, but the Melrose advertises a “Grand Opening” (reopening?)on November 23, 1960 with “Hercules/Samson and Delilah/Ulysses” (triple-bill) in The Pittsburgh Press.

RSM3853 commented about Liberty Theatre on Oct 26, 2014 at 6:35 pm

The big ad in The Pittsburgh Press on Sunday, July 3, 1960 for a first-run double bill of “The Last Days of Pompeii” and “The Boy and the Pirates” lists all of the theaters showing it. One of them is the Liberty Theater – South Side, so yes, Ed Blank, this theater was operating in 1960.

RSM3853 commented about Hazelwood Theatre on Oct 4, 2014 at 9:01 am

The last listing for films in The Pittsburgh Press is the week of April 11-17, 1962 with “The Minotaur.”

RSM3853 commented about Capitol Theatre on Oct 3, 2014 at 7:01 am

The Capitol sometimes advertised what was showing in the neighborhood listings in The Pittsburgh Press. The latest one that I could find was the week of October 26, 1966 – a double bill of “Marco the Magnificent” and “Tiko and the Shark” is listed…so the Capitol was still open then.

Does anyone know where I can find microfilms of old Braddock papers, if any exist? I tried the Braddock Carnegie Library, but they do not have them.

RSM3853 commented about Cinemette South on Jul 3, 2014 at 6:54 am

These theaters did not last very long. It looks like they closed sometime during the first week of September 1982. The last films to play there were “Midnight” and “The World According to Garp.” As Ed Blank noted above, the theaters were up the hill and off the main road. I know that the only film I ever saw there was “A Bridge Too Far” in 1977.

RSM3853 commented about Plaza Theater on Jun 28, 2014 at 8:15 am

The Plaza was DARK for many years. It was reopened in December 1979 with “Roller Boogie.”

RSM3853 commented about Manos Theater on Mar 10, 2014 at 1:44 pm

The Manos Theater in Jeannette suffered major damage in a fire on January 10, 1979, according to a front page article in The Jeannette News-Dispatch issue of January 11, 1979. At the time, the theater was showing “National Lampoon’s Animal House.”

RSM3853 commented about Roxy Theatre on Feb 28, 2014 at 12:50 pm

The week of April 20-26, 1977 the Roxy had “The Town That Dreaded Sundown”, but did not play any films the next 9 weeks after that…perhaps that was the last film there.

RSM3853 commented about Blue Mouse Theatre on Feb 9, 2014 at 9:39 am

My research shows “Mutiny on the Bounty” opening at the Blue Mouse the week of December 19-25,1962 and “Barabbas” opening the same week at the 5th Avenue.

RSM3853 commented about Kelly Strayhorn Theater on Jan 15, 2014 at 9:32 am

I too only went there once, in 1976. There was a double-bill of UA films playing…“Drum” and “Breakheart Pass.” I only stayed to see Charles Bronson in “Breakheart Pass” since “Drum” was supposed to be one of the worst films of 1976.

RSM3853 commented about South Park Drive-In on Jan 14, 2014 at 12:12 pm

This map is just a little bit off. The red marker is actually marking the location of the Brightwood Christian Church. It should be across Route 88 (Library Road)at the bottom of Lytle Road.

RSM3853 commented about Bellevue Theater on Jan 12, 2014 at 2:56 pm

I only got to see a movie at this theater once. I went on a date with Nancey Epperson to see “A Brief Vacation,” an Italian film directed by Vittorio de Sica, starring Florinda Bolkan. It was rare that sub-titled foreign language films played in neighborhoods like this one as a second-run.

RSM3853 commented about Parkway Theater on Jan 12, 2014 at 2:45 pm

Good Luck on your restoration! I only got to go to the Parkway once,but I can still remember it. I got there early for the feature and I have a picture in my mind of a long hallway to get to the men’s room, which I needed to use badly after the bus ride and walk to get there. Oh, by the way…the movie was great…it was “The Wind and the Lion” with Sean Connery and Candice Bergen.

@csepe: It was “The Island at the Top of the World,” Disney’s Christmas picture for 1974.

Sad to hear this. I have this book and refer to it often.

RSM3853 commented about Movie theaters in airports unlikely on Jan 6, 2014 at 1:37 pm

The former Greater Pittsburgh International Airport had a movie theater inside it back in the 1960s for people who had time to kill between flights or just coming from the residential areas around it. It finally gave way to expansion by USAir.

RSM3853 commented about Rivoli Theatre on Jan 6, 2014 at 8:37 am

Thanks for the info – what I’ve been doing is copying entire lists of films (not just single titles) from Excel and pasting them in.

I have not been counting “invitation-only charity premieres” such as those held for roadshow films, but the week that the regular paying-public got to get into the theater…I found a lot of these were on Tuesday evenings, which is why some of my dates are a week later…and yes, I used Variety a lot, but I would subtract 6 days from the date on the city report.

RSM3853 commented about Happy 50th, “Lawrence of Arabia” on Jan 5, 2014 at 12:23 pm

The reason that “Lawrence of Arabia” only played for 3 weeks at the Nixon Theater in Pittsburgh, PA is that the theater caught on fire and was heavily damaged. “L o A” opened on April 3, 1963 and the film was transferred to the Fulton Theater for the rest of its premiere run, but it didn’t do as well there and only lasted until “Bye Bye Birdie” replaced it on June 19, 1963.

RSM3853 commented about Rivoli Theatre on Jan 5, 2014 at 12:10 pm

Thanks so very much for catching that, Coate – I put my info in Excel spreadsheets and didn’t catch the word “Rivoli” for the “Jaws” row because it was behind “Loew’s Orpheum” alphabetically. It opened in most cities on Wednesday, June 18, 1975. I actually wondered about that when I sorted the spreadsheet – didn’t think “The Return of the Pink Panther” played that long.

Re: Your other concerns. As I’ve already typed all this data in Excel, I don’t have time to retype everything, so I just copy and paste, which probably is what makes it one paragraph. Any suggestions to improve the format are welcome – I’m just trying to get my data on here for others to save them all the years of microfilm reading I’ve done.

As far using Wednesday dates, I grew up and live in Pittsburgh, and our theaters changed bills on that day up to around October 1974, when they began trying Fridays. Going through old newspapers on microfilms, it would take forever to look at every single day to see what new openings there were. In addition, Variety used Wednesdays for their weekly box-office reports so I choose to do so, also. The date I use is just considered by me to be the first day of the opening week, although many cities opened new films on Wednesdays beside Pittsburgh.

Finally, I think that anyone who might be interested in Cinema Treasures is pretty much already aware of the titles that were “roadshow presentations” and there are other websites that list 70 mm or other large size film, so that info is already available elsewhere…I was just interested in what theaters played what films when compared to here, regardless of process or type of booking.

But I thank you for reading my posts! :–)

First-run Movie Openings at the California Theater in San Diego from December 1959 through August 1974. The date given is the Wednesday of the opening week. The ® symbol means a reissue. Research is from microfilms of The San Diego Union.
