From what I can see this theatre is now used exclusively as a church.

I have fond memories of the LeRoy Theatre from my childhood. I especially remember the statues along the walls, the consession area & the smell of the popcorn. Movies of the time: Alfie, The Graduate, Easy Rider & Patton are a few. It was a wonderful time back then, Main St was busy on Friday nights, lots of people shopping, dining, or enjoying the theatre.

I think the church was renting space for use on Sunday.

In 2007 it housed a church.

If you’re just looking at the marquee, I would say art deco. I guess we would need a view of the rest of the theater as well.

I was there the fall of 2006 and the marquee was recently removed and the theatre is now a church.

The LeRoy Theatre had a great looking marquee! What became of it?

Hope all is going well for the Mattlas and the LeRoy Theatre. If anyone can make it work, julian can. This is one of those classic old theatres that can survive thanks to the true dedication of the owners.
Best of luck,

When I was a kid in the early 1960’s, I spent many Saturday afternoons at the LeRoy Theatre. There would be a bunch of newsreel-type short subjects and cartoons, a cowboy or monster movie, and usually some kind of “live show” on the stage. At the holidays, there would be a Santa Claus who passed out candy canes to us kids. I have fond memories of this theatre, and I hope it can be kept open.

One of the additional joys of visiting theatres is meeting the owners or managers. Without fail, they have many colorful and amusing tales to pass along. I’ll share this one with you.
When the Mattla’s took over the theatre they “inherited” an elderly very hard of hearing gentleman who serviced the candy counter. Before the Mattla’s recently enclosed the auditorium, there was simply a half wall between the candy counter and the auditorium. It seemed when “little Johnny or Billy” took too long choosing a candy selection, the elderly gentleman would bellow out, “What Do You Want” This famous line, “What Do You Want” was heard many times throughout every movie. I’m not sure if this line was appropiate dialogue in all the situations in the movie, but I’ll bet many time it fit well.
The story was a source of amusement for me and no doubt many of the patrons. I wonder if the patron bet each other who was at the candy couter when, What Do You Want" roared through the auditorium.
