The Central Theater closed in 1976. It reopened in 1978 as a combination movie theatre/disco before closing for good in 1979.

I have been inside the building also and wow, it’s still beautiful.
Maggie Moos has nice digs.

I rode by this the other day on bike and stopped in for a look. The walls are marble and the chandeliers are amazing. Don’t know if they were the originals? There’s a bunch of them and there are shops along the hallway. There are also old movie poster metal holders on the walls.
