Thats better. It changes at random. First I received a night view of “something”, then I saw photo #22 which isn’t this theater.

The website claims that, “Welcome to the Montrose Theatre, where we have been showcasing films since talking movies were first invented, over 85 years ago”.

That would mean this theater was operating since 1923. Which talking movies were being shown in 1923?

Thats one possibility. Did they show that movie for four years until the Jazz Singer was released? LOL

If it was the only one, maybe they didn’t have a choice. Don’t forget that there’s one lady out there who saw “The Sound of Music” 962 times, I think.

The hills are alive with the sound of music……….

While doing research on a theatre in Endicott, I came across references to a Colonial Theater (around 1905) and an Ideal Theater (from around 1923-1933) in Montrose. Oddly enough, these were the same names as the theatre in Endicott I was researching, exactly before and after.

This seems likely to have been originally the Ideal Theater, since 1923 is about when the references to it first start popping up.
