Things are slowly happening at the Delta. The old roof was about 80% gone and now a new roof is on. All the old decorations on the walls and trash on the floor has been cleaned out. Everything has been torn out except they left the projection booth. Possibly this means that maybe someday it might be a theatre again. The marquee has been redone and painted however the front of the theatre is sealed off with a pull down door. Being a theatre nut, I saw all this in a crack in the back door! Will keep you posted.

The theatre has been vacant for the last 30 years. Now demolition has finally started due to the roof falling in.

The last movies we saw at the Delta was “Splendor In The Grass” with Warren Beaty and “Fanny” with Leslie Caron and Maurice Chevalier. Most always there was a double feature unless it was a special like “The Ten Commandments”.
