This Theater has 415 seats from what I know, not 300

So I won’t be the cause of any more hair loss for HogGravy, here is a fresh link to the photo of the Trail Theatre on the cover of Boxoffice, October 6, 1951.

HogGravy, Nothing has been done since I took those construction pictures last September…. Quite sad. How I would LOVE to own that building.

Is he Trail re-opened yet with digital projection??

Nope, still closed, Looks nearly unchanged since the two pics uploaded by me in September 2011.

The vitrolite is now falling off of the exterior in depressingly large quantities, there are now ~20 tiles missing/fallen. I’m currently using a shard I found on the sidewalk as a keychain. I will own this building someday….

I checked micro film at local Library no adds in Jan 2010 newspapers so I decided to check Dec 2009 newspapers and again no adds which means it closed before Dec 2009.
