Does anyone here know when the Times Theater in Seaside, Oregon closed? I heard it was late summer of 1990, but I cannot find any information. I need month and year.

I’ve now found and scanned my pictures of the Times Theater and added them here.

I found those two on a Facebook page called Forgotten Oregon. I must have found 10-15 pics of various theatres, and I wasn’t even ¼ of the way through their photos section. I’ve already created 4 new CT pages for missing theatres based on what I’ve found. Still need to make one for the Parkrose when I have time.

I’ve got some pictures of this theater in my files. Just need to dig them out and scan them.

Note the Sunset Drive-In sign on the wall of the Times Theatre building. Gregory Kershul the owner of the Times, originally bought the Sunset Drive-In in Gearhart Oregon in 1955, before buying the Times Theatre in 1959. His obituary is below. I will add a CT page for the Sunset Drive-in.

What a waste! The Times was a great theater. Here they tear down the only good theater in town and leave that horrid dump the Cannes Cinemas. Now I will NEVER go back to Seaside again.

Sadly, now gone. The site now used for a massive time share complex.
