There are a number of nice pictures of this theatre on Google Maps photos.
Phone rings but no one answers. Appears to be closed. Facebook page states that the theatre is closed due to the Covid pandemic.
Has been purchased and the new owners are contemplating future use. https://www.tampabay.com/news/business/2021/09/04/whats-next-for-the-beach-theatre-new-owner-wants-your-input/?fbclid=IwAR3G0yD_U3iqsnfFAAt0pk15GkMUVF3xbwLNa9ZHP1fWIk1yWuQGA7Zjp-M
The address is that of a building called the Village Mall. Function should be retail.
The city of Somerset has approved renovation funds. Status should be closed/renovating. https://www.cityofsomerset.com/2021/05/03/virginia-theatre-to-be-renovated-restored-as-part-of-13-million-bond-initiative/
Pop-up. Their Facebook page shows inflatable screens and lawn seating. Showing free “classic” (old public domain) films. Hardly a treasure.
Current movie listings are on the Park district website but you’ll have to dig through it to find them. Their Facebook page is also up to date.
The address problem with Google Streetview seems to be that State Street is the border line between Indiana and Ohio. Harrison OH is on the east side of State, whereas West Harrison is a small town on the west side of State in Indiana. The former theatre is on the east side, clearly in Ohio.
Current function is: Liquor store.(retail)
Any other information? Dates of operation e.g.
The marquee for this theatre shows up in a crime documentary series called “Killer Cases.”
The exterior of the theatre also appears in the 1973 film “Invasion of the Bee Girls.”
Needs some information. e.g. When did it open?
The Wells Fargo bank building at 217 W Forsyth appears to have been a good-sized theatre previously. Blank sides and ground level exit doors are a clue.
Google Streetview of August 2017 shows the Beacon Cinema sign in place on the building. It took 2 ½ years to open?
Status should be changed to demolished. The entire mall was taken down recently to be replaced by new development.
Currently shut down due to the Covid pandemic. It is questionable whether it will ever reopen, with plans to redevelop the East Towne area. These plans include taking down the mall where the theatre is located.
