How much of the theater is left inside? I am in the process of buying and rehabbing the Philippi Grand and if it proves profitable I want to work on reopening other theaters in WV, KY, OH, PA, MD, and VA. There are so many wonderful old theaters with more character than any modern cookie cutter places.

The Boxoffice item Tinseltoes linked to says that the Manos Theatre was designed by architect Victor A. Rigaumont.

Erasmus: You’re too late for this one. The Manos Theatre has been purchased by the International Mother’s Day Shrine and is already being renovated.

Erasmusinwv2, I am heading up there in July. I will try to check things out for you if you have not already. I am not certain of the Mother’s Day Shrine’s renovation intent or their budget. I would like to see it restored to as near original condition as possible, but also be a functioning theatre for the area. Have you done any further investigating into this?
