I added the vintage and current photos to the Photo Sections crediting Danyel Brenner. So they don’t disappear after the Go Fund Me page expires.

Here is the Go Fund Me page for the Midway. It has several vintage photos of the original facade. Which I’m sure still exists behind the newer one. Copy & paste to view.

This link highlights a fundraising effort to purchase a digital projector, repair and reopen the Midway. The article says the Midway was built in 1916, and will be celebrating it’s 100th anniversary. So maybe the 1923 date should be changed in the Overview. Copy & paste to view.

I spoke with Darold Albertson, the Midway’s current owner, the other day and he confirmed the theatre closed around 2013 due mainly to lack of funds to make the digital conversion as well as some attendance issues. The theatre is, however, for sale and he believe he will be finalizing the sale to a group that formed to reopen the theatre for live events and/or movies. Prior to that the theatre has been running regularly; as with most businesses, organizations and even local government agencies in that part of the state, the Midway never had any web presence. No website,social media pages, online movie times or even a showtime recording on the phone which is why it “looked closed”.

So sadly, for now, status should be changed to CLOSED although we’ll have to keep an eye on it and change it again once the group gets it running once again!
