This is the same theatre that is also listed here as being in Fulton, NY. Someone should take out one of them. It is close to Fulton but in Minetto. I always heard it was called Midway because it is Mid-Way between Oswego, and Fulton, NY.

Someone must have some nice memories to share about this place. I was there as a kid, I used to like the cartoons that always started at dusk, the fun intermission trailers about the snack bar, and I clearly recall the B&W trailer for bug repellent coils called “PIC” featuring a bug with a bronx accent drawing on a car windshleid, saying “Don’t you believe it – it don’t woik!” I can still picture the heavy old speakers that hung on the window glass, and the humps that the cars parked on to lean back. If they’re using radio sound now, I wonder if it’s stereo? As a teen, I recall getting a kick out of the pizza and french fries… I miss that place, and I’m very glad it’s still there and being taken care of.

Sad news. :(

I hope insurance can pay for a new one. They should call Selby Screen Towers for an estimate.
