Patsy: Boxoffice has removed its archive from and posted most of it on a section of its own web site called The Vault. I’m gradually updating my old links as I run across them.

The 1942 article about the Grand Theatre by Michael DeAngelis begins on this page and continues on the two subsequent pages.

Joe: Thanks so very much! Since posting on CT last night I did finally find the Boxoffice link called The Vault. I then passed it along to my historian friend for future reference regarding the hometown Grand Theatre. Thanks again!!!!

P.S. Did you ever find any other articles about the Grand in another Boxoffice magazine other than in the January 3, 1942 issue?

The only other mention of the Grand I can recall in Boxoffice was the drawing in the “Just Off the Boards” feature of the April 26, 1941, issue, but it’s the same drawing that appears in the 1942 article.

Joe: THANKS AGAIN! I do recall this now.

And this theatre has most definitely been demolished and not closed.

David Stear: I see that you added this theatre to CT and wondered if you are from the western NYS area. I’m helping a local historian with the history of the Grand Theatre. Thanks. ()

The grandson of Michael DeAngelis, Mark DeAngelis became a CT member today, Jan. 31 2013. He posted on the Stage/Warsaw NY link. Join me in welcoming him to Cinema Treasures!

looking for some information on the Grand Theatre that used to be in Westfield as part of a ‘Lost Places’ article for the Chautauqua Star newspaper. Would anyone here know a good contact? maybe the former owners?
