If anyone else has fond memories of this theatre, please let me know.
The Washington Theatre was beautiful! My memories of this theatre are wonderful. The outside was made of brick, with a ticket box out front. The inside was marble, it had a concession stand approximately 15 feet long, it was all glass. There were huge pillars in the parlor, these pillars where surrounded by red velvet seating, going around the base of the pillars.
There was a balcony, and a stage, on stage every week, they gave away a guitar, this was done by drawing a ticket stub. The person holding the matching other half of the ticket won the guitar.
I always hoped to win, but never did.
They also, candy machines in the parlor.
The seats where velvet.
It seems so much of a waste, to demolish something so wonderful.
Our city has demolished some beautiful old buildings.
