Chuck..Look at the postcard picture of the Garby that Lost Memory posted. Then go to cinematour and look at that picture. You will notice that the facade has been changed, but you can still see parts of the building and the neighboring building to the left. The Orpheum has got to be another theater in town. And is that ever an ugly facade!!

The Garby and The Orpheum are barely a block apart, both on Main. The Garby is now Nails II, and does sit on a corner. The Orpheum is now Sparky’s Pizza Buffet, and is sandwiched between other buildings. If anyone wants current pictures, I could provide them.

After viewing the Garby on Cinema Tours I can tell you that it is not the present day Orpheum Theatre.

Both the Garby and The Orpheum are for sale. The garby is currently split down the middle to accomodate two screens. This was done in the early eighties. Most of the original stremeline moderne lines run along the outside walls on each side. I spoke recently with a gentleman named Phil Wein who told me he used to do a magic act on the Garby stage many years ago.

Lost Memory: Your April 2, 2006 posts show contrasting photos of this theatre over the years and the subsequent changes.

Lost Memory: I would like to see the June 1950 theatre exterior photo enlarged as it showed the curved marquee and curved building with an art deco look. BTW, I wasn’t aware that this PA town had 2 theatres, today.

Patsy and Lost Memory, you should download Irfanview 4.00 — which is free shareware — from the following link:

http://www.tucows.com/start_dl/194967_75076_245

Though it’s basically a file viewing program, it has full editing capability and is very easy to use. I’ve been using various versions of this program ever since I began computing and couldn’t even imagine not having it on my computer. So go ahead and download it and you’ll both be happy you did, I guarantee it!

As a good basic file viewing program, and with a high degree of editing capability, and so readily accessible the moment you click on its icon, to me it’s a must have program to have on every computer. For instance, if you have a bunch of image files in a folder, open the first image file with IrfanView, and simply by pressing the ENTER key on your computer keyboard you can then go through all the image files in rapid succession, or slow if you prefer, without having to open each file separately.

You can also easily crop photos, convert them to grey scale, blur or sharpen them, intensify the color, change the coloration, increase or decrease the contrast, brighten or darken them, enlarge or reduce the image size, rotate and reverse the image, change the file format, and so on, more easily with this program than any other I’ve ever come across. So for Cinema treasures members I’d say it’s a must-have program all told.

CORRECTION: I said above that you can go through image files in rapid succession by pressing the ENTER key. I meant to say the SPACE BAR key. (Press the ENTER key if you want to view an image file full screen.) In any event, you’ll find this program very intuitive….er, so much so that you won’t be thinking much about which key you’re pressing when doing this or that function, hence explaining my mix-up.
