Would that be Pepto-Bismol Revival? I’m still waiting for the function to be changed to first run movies before this becomes a second run theater. :)

It’s amazing how these photos just happen to land in your Photobucket account. They must be magnetic.

The Eltrym Theater opened on June 27th, 1940 and had 700 seats. The first film shown was “Ghost Breakers” starring Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard. The theater was built by Frank Buckmiller and Freeman Geddes and was named in honor of Frank’s wife, Myrtle, who passed away before the theater was finished. The architect was Day Walter Hillborn from Vancouver, WA.

The Eltrym Theatre is in the process of installing digital projection units in all of its theatres. This big investment will ensure the viability of the theatre for years to come. I applaud the owners for investing in our community like this. They have done so much to the Eltrym since purchasing it. It has truly become a shining jewel in our downtown historic district.
