I was saddened to see the Baederwood closed when I went to the Whole Foods market a few months ago. I went to see “The Ring Two” there back in 2005. You know what usually happens when you go to see a movie with a house full of teenagers … none of them will shut up during the movie.

Well, to my surprise the staff actually stopped the film to inform the crowd that they will not deal with the overabundant talking during the film disrupting other theatregoers, and will escort anyone “talking out of turn” out of the theatre without a refund.

A great staff to go with a great theatre.

In June 2002, I saw Insomnia (Al Pacino as a detective) in one of the twin auditoriums. I could tell how large the main auditorium had been. Even though some seats didn’t perfectly face the screen, there were many seats that had fine views. I liked the Baederwood as a twin and would have enjoyed seeing more movies there.

In November, 2005, I saw North Country and was surprised to see it on a reasonably large screen in of the smaller auditoriums of the then 4 screener. The screen was larger than often found in the smaller auditoriums of stadium seated megaplexes!
Hearing that the theater was going to close, I attended during its last weekend to experience a movie in one of the larger auditoriums. I saw the animated Cars.
The Baederwood was an even better theater than it had been as a twin. All four screens were decently sized.
The neighborhood had interesting shops including a Barnes and Noble bookstore. The strip mall had a deli since it opened, a pizza shop, and other eating choices. The exterior of the theater had the appearance of a single screen theater. The canopy that had been added gave people a sense of arrival at an elegant theater.

Here is my photo of the exterior from 2006 shortly before it closed:
