Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Millwald Theater was operating in 1941, when it is listed with a seating capacity of 424. Later converted into three screens, by dividing the balcony, it closed as a movie theatre in 2006, and now houses a church.

Also read that the theatre was a multiplex with 4 screens after it being a single screen theatre so that tells me that it was divided in some way? In many cases theatres are divided between the lower auditorium and the balcony area which such is the case with a theatre in Wellsville NY which I have visited.

Interesting post on Feb. 18, 2007 of how the theatre came to be named the Millwald. And even the Millwald isn’t in the condition that we all wish, at least the town still has the brick building with the name MILLWALD on it and the art deco marquee! Amen!
