There’s a link to the first of four photos I took. Getting to the rest is easy from there. I couldn’t get my shot of the mirror behind the counter to come out well, but mirrors are hard to photograph.

That’s the one. It certainly didn’t look like it was built in ‘39.

Chuck,
If you’re going to post my photos, you need to credit me. Why not just link to the page you downloaded them from?

Actually, the caption says that’s the one in Hamilton, which is about 400 miles NE of Junction. This is Junction’s.

Right, the sign. Not the marquee.

I think the complex that originally contained it is still there, but so renovated that it’s hard to tell where the theater was.

Right, I said the better one was down by the lake.

God, it took them that long? I ran up and photographed it Thanksgiving weekend, and they already had barriers up in front of it.

I did Titusville on the same road trip, and I didn’t see anything that looked like a theater. They might all be gone.

I took one shot through the door. The place was a wreck. I got several of the outside.

By the way, a big Thank You to Charles VanBibber for helping me ID this theater, and for providing so much info.

Stop your whining. It was a joke.

A Glorious Five Year Plan, with Shock Brigades of Hero Viewers for Stalin! Comrades, we must watch more movies! Heh. Sorry. I do think this theater just might make it as a second run house. There are about 5,000 people in the entire county, which makes it good-sized for that part of TX. I’d imagine Post has close to 3,500 of them.

I love the Warner’s marquee, with the stained glass in the corners that advertises ‘A Warner Theatre’. Unfortunately my pictures of the theater have some stupid giant ‘art’ frog right in the middle. Why did it have to block the ticket booth? And it isn’t even very good (‘Copper Hopper Chopper’ down by the lake was much cooler).

I contributed this theater several months ago, but this does have some good information. Suggest we eliminate the double listing. People need to check if a theater already exists before submitting it.

There’s almost no way this theater would be successful as retail. Post is way too small and far away from everything. The ‘business district’ is pretty hurting, like so many other small towns in America. So I think we’re safely reduced to worrying whether this will become just another sad shell of a building.

Seth commented about Colonial Theatre Most Likely To Be Demolished on Nov 19, 2004 at 2:56 pm

Any update on whether/when the demo will occur? If I remember right, the bids were due today. I might take a road trip Thanksgiving weekend to see it, if it will still be there. What I’m hoping for is that they’ll at least preserve the front portion of the theater, allowing me to come up and see it when the weather’s better and the days are longer.

I guess we can change the status now. Funny that it doesn’t seem to have any neon. I can’t see any evidence of old installations in my pictures. Too bad the article doesn’t give more history.

How about the facade? Anything to see at all? I just went to see the Jordan, which was a disaster inside, but presentable from the outside.

Seth commented about Colonial Theater on Nov 12, 2004 at 1:07 pm

Question for any locals. Is this theater worth seeing before it goes?

Seth
Seth commented about Colonial Theatre Most Likely To Be Demolished on Nov 12, 2004 at 1:06 pm

For crying out loud. Am I going to have to rent a car again? Can’t they delay demolition until the spring when the weather will be better for driving and taking pictures? The landlord sounds like a real cockroach.

Street number is 116-118, probably Main St.

Street number is 210, but I can’t remember what street it was on.

Wow, you’re just chock full of these crapholes, aren’t you RMI? So, who do you work for? You gave us all the beautiful Dan Barry multiplexes, are we now to be treated to a ‘Rave Revue’? Do everyone a favor and flack these at a Wal-Mart fansite or somewhere else where your cultural level belongs.
