Any word on what’s going on here and who is running this theatre?
Any updates on this theater?
Any updates on this theater? Can’t open their web site.
Any updates on The Ohio Theater in Toledo? From what I have read it appears the non-profit group that ran the theater sold it to a developer who is going to renovate the place then sell it back to them. Is this the case? Do you have a contact for the person who heads this non-profit group? Thanks for any info you can share.
Could someone please update the status of The State Theatre? Is it still closed? Is it still up for sale? If it’s for sale, any idea on the asking price? How about the name of the brokerage company, if any, and if you know the owner’s name I would appreciate that as well. Thanks for any information you can share.
Are any of these items still available?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
Does anyone know if this theater is for sale? I thought I read somewhere a few months back that it was closing.
Thank you for the useful comments. I will be in touch shortly.
Is this the one the real estate gentleman was referring to with regards to your other posting? Have you seen this one? Your thoughts?
Any luck? I’ve written a couple tiomes to Sandy but I haven’t gotten any more info. Do you at least know the town?
I read your posting and I wish you luck. My wife is originally from N-port and we currently reside in southern Maine. I too had been looking for something similar to what you want up here but have struck out. If you need help with your project once you’ve located a building please contact me. I’d love to get involved.
I have a couple questions. Has this theatre been damaged from the Hurricanes in the past few years? Are there any outside photos of this theatre? Are these interior photos current? If still available, what is the asking price?
Do you have any interior and exterior pix of the theater?
Is this theater still looking for a buyer? Last I heard there was a man from Michigan interested in it. Is Ron still running things? If still on the market, may I inquire of the asking price?
Oops, I found your email address. If only I would open my eyes.
Sorry about that. An email is on its way to you.
Bryan, I can’t locate your email address.
Is there a photo of this theatre available? Also, which city is this in?
Boy does that Walgreens photo make me sick. Unfortunately, you get sick, you go to a doctor. Your doctor writes you a ‘scrip. You take that 'scrip to your local pharmacy, perhaps a Walgreens. In an ironic way I guess we could think of it as going full circle. Let’s hope there is more than one local pharmacy.
Thanks for the info on Eric at the Kane County Chronicle. I sent an email to him this morning.
All I want to do is get a shot at speaking with, or writing to this Scott Price. It shouldn’t be so difficult to find this person.
I also appreciate your opinions about the SC Partnership. I get the same sense as you about their desires, otherwise they would have given me Scott’s contact info. I’m hoping to use the Arcada as a combined cinema and live entertainment venue. But if the Parntership can take care of it and would rather not include others, then fine.
I must say though, Mr. Richards was very positive in the email response he did send to me. I just think Scott Price needs to know that someone else is also interested in speaking with him before he agrees to whatever is being proposed, because it could come back to bite someone months from now, and the theatre could be right back in this same position, and in the mean time, those of us who were willing to help may have moved on to some other community that was a little more willing to include outsiders.
Thanks for the response. I thought the same as far as posting the email address of the Mayor. I have indeed written to her, Monday as a matter of fact. Still no response. I see St. Charles has also canned this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, and the Pepsi Half-Marathon. What’s going on? And how ironic…I’ve been in the theater biz for years, our family is primarily of Irish lineage, and I’m a marathon runner. Can St. Charles be more of a fit for me or what?
As far as I knew, “anime” refers to some resins taken from trees, that you use to make varnish. But something tells me that’s not what you meant. I’m guessing something with animation?
If anyone could help me get the name(s) of the writer(s) from the local newspaper(s) that have written on this Arcada subject, then maybe I could get the Arcada’s owner Scott Price’s contact info from them.
So far in my research the most recent newspaper article doesn’t post a name on the story. Just Staff Reports or something like that.
I just realized, some of my postings I’m referring to in my above note are postings that actually appear on the other page on this site, I guess it’s the latest news page, dated January 31, under the headline NO MORE MOVIES AT ST. CHARLES ARCADA…posted by Bryan Krefft.
I like your film festival ideas, and those are just a few of many ideas I’ve been hoping to include in my plans, if I could just find someone there to point me to this Scott Price in Seattle, the owner of the Arcada.
If you read my previous posting you’ll see my numerous attempts at getting the ball rolling on this, including writing to the mayor, but so far, still no response.
So if others would be willing to get on the horn and call or write to these folks as well, even if it’s just asking them when they plan on responding to me, that might help light a little fire under their butt with regards to saving this theater.
Thanks again to anyone willing to help!
