2013: Refurbished marquee, in original red/yellow color scheme, updated with digital front and side panels – Belleville’s dedication to fully restoring this cinematic gem is just astounding… BRAVO!

A friend of mine used to manage the Blair in the early 1960’s. Commonwealth amusement was running the theatre and my friend worked for them. There was also a Drive-in at Belleville. The ran the drive-in in the summertime and the Blair in the wintertime. This was, of course, before the days of cable tv and daylight saving time. So the drive-in could or probably is, long gone. Sorry, I don’t remember the name of the drive-in, but I do remember seeing “The Misfits”, with Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe.

Function should be first run movies, since Coraline is showing as of today.

Thanks. Number of seats at the top of the page should be 208. When the balcony is open again, you could give the updated seat count.

The Blair Theater is listed in 1955 with 720 seats. How many seats does it have now?

The grant was back in 2003. The local Main Street group states on their website that the Blair is under renovation and opening soon. No timetable, though.
