Here are my pictures from July 2012. None of the previously posted pictures show the ornate “rear” entrance facing Bay Street. I’ve included a picture of that entrance, which is visible if you click my link.

In late 1973 when I moved to Fort Myers (had my first job out of college there) the Arcade was still a first run theatre. I recall seeing some of the disaster movies of the era there…Towering Inferno among them, I believe. I also talked my girlfriend (now my wife) into going to a midnight showing of Night of the Living Dead there. That was an experience! It was a cool old theatre and I’m happy to see that it survives.
