Photos added for Great Northern.
One from ‘Cleveland Press’ article published in 1966; better quality picture at:
Some black/white from 1973 during St. Richards Church services at theatre (was still single screened) due to church renovations.
Four color pictures taken on Oct. 23, 2000 day after theatre closed which by that time was a Seven screened theatre complex. Four of the Seven theatres were in the original auditorium. The remaining Three were in newer construction in the rear.
I have more pictures if any interest.
Sorry, picture not lobby, but main theatre during services by St. Richards church in 1973 during church renovations.
I will scan some of the pictures of Great Northern Theatre and send. Sometimes my scanner acts up so it may be a week or so.
I worked at the Great Northern Theatre for about two years while in high school. I remember the huge overlapping ribbon screen and going into the projectionist booth. If anyone is interested I have pictures from the 1970’s of when St. Richards Church rented the theatre in the 1970’s for church services that shows the huge curtain and size of the auditorium. It was very sad when the theatre was doubled to see them tear up the screen.
