This theatre is for sale again, there have been improvements done —new rubber roof over auditorium, new heat and air conditioning. It has a 3 bedroom apartment that is currently rented out and a 2 car garage. The asking price is $130,000 because owner wants to help make sure theatre stays open. It is first run.

Notice that the marquee is in poor repair, with open access ports on the bottom, no sign bulbs on the bottom, many missing on the sides, and the neon missing on the sides. Also, the “Tomahawk” boards are cheap plastic.

I don’t have any interior photos of the theatre, because the roll of film was damaged. I do have a number of exterior shots though. The interior is pretty plain.

Originally named the Lyric. I would guess this was remodeled in the 60s and 70s, from the marquee, lower facade, and interior. The house lacks any ornamentation, but I doubt there was any in the first place. It looks like a typical 60s theater inside, but nice and largish. One curious feature is a partial boat hull in the very rear. It looks as though there was originally a balcony, now used as a large projection booth. Many original details remain such as padded, brass-tacked doors and box office. I’ve never seen a theater with such legroom – you can stretch your legs completely out. It has a lot of charm. Projection looked a little fuzzy, with good sound, and apparently they still change reels, because there was a very brief intermission. Web site is www.geocities.com/tomahawkcinema . I took a number of pictures of this. Also one at View link
