It has been four months since my last comment and still not a peep!

The Cottman-Bustleton Center is on Cottman Avenue (2139), not Bleigh Avenue!

Was the theater a part of the Andorra Shopping Center or was it free standing?

Well Howard, I guess they’re okay to keep if you have the time to search the archives. For many people, it’s simply a waste of time!

Why a photo of a decrepit 1991 Town Theatre? If a dated photo is to be shown, why not one when it was the Empire or Palace?

Why are all of these other theaters discussed here? The topic here is the Dade Theatre. Please, these other theaters have their own pages!

TheALAN commented about 61st Street Drive-In on Mar 30, 2015 at 8:11 pm

Although decrepit, the 61ST STREET DRIVE-IN THEATRE sign, with its red arrow, still welcomes moviegoers to a drive-in that went dark over 30-years ago. It’s as if Rod Serling (1924-1975) is ready to step from behind that red/yellow, black/white marquee sign to say — Welcome to The Twilight Zone! “Strange Invaders” (1983 – Orion) starring Paul Le Mat (b. 1945) and Nancy Allen (b. 1950), the last picture to play here, may still be playing. Eerie!

TheALAN commented about Route 35 Drive-In on Mar 25, 2015 at 10:42 pm

“The Searchers” (1956 Warner Bros.) starring John Wayne (1907-1979) and Jeffrey Hunter (1926-1969) plus “Magnificent Roughnecks” (1956 Allied Artists) starring Jack Carson (1910-1963) and Mickey Rooney (1920-2014) opened the Route 35 Drive-In. Since “Magnificent Roughnecks” was not released until Sunday, July 22, 1956, the Route 35 could not have opened any earlier.

TheALAN commented about Lawndale Theatre on Feb 24, 2015 at 4:01 pm

The Lawndale Theatre seated 1,217 when it opened in 1922. Later refitted for live theater, it was renamed the Abbey Stage Door and seating was reduced to 850. Seating had been reduced again to 500 by the time the Abbey closed in 1964. A health center for a time, the theater has been a day care since the late 1970’s.

Hello! Why is the Mayfair Theater pictured on the St. James Theatre site above? It even says Mayfair Theatre, Asbury Park, N.J.

Okay, so it took 12 years, but they got it done! To those who said it shouldn’t happen, couldn’t happen, wouldn’t happen, or didn’t happen — ?!*/%#+ … . , to you! It did happen! Welcome back King’s Theatre, and thank you to all those who made it happen!

Since Dave removed his comment, I’ll repost my comment from June 2, 2014 at 6:54 pm. Sorry Dave, you’re a little confused! It’s EAST Columbia Avenue (today renamed EAST Cecil B. Moore Avenue).
