I saw EMPIRE STRIKES BACK here. Also, BRAZIL. (I think STREETS OF FIRE, too.) Nice house.

I remember you could only use the parking lot by the theater nights & weekends, because it was actually the bank’s parking lot. (Funny not funny the 3-plex became part of the parking lot.) Saw a lot of movies here: THE MAN WITH TWO BRAINS, ZELIG, GHOSTBUSTERS, PURPLE RAIN, NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN, ANNIE, EXPOSED, THIS IS SPINAL TAP… .

I saw MAD MAX: BEYOND THUNDERDOME 1st run at the Colonial. They still had working curtains. Great theater.

According to the Wed., Dec. 24, 1924, issue of the Steuben Farmers Advocate newspaper, the Babcock Theater would open Christmas Day (Thursday), 1924, with “7 Keith Big Time Vaudeville Acts.” The vaudeville had a 3-day engagement. On Friday and Saturday (Dec. 26-27), a movie program shared the bill: Colleen Moore in First National Pictures' FLIRTING WITH LOVE, and a “Larry Semon comedy.” The first film-only program followed Dec. 28-29 (Sun-Mon), Vitagraph’s swashbuckler CAPTAIN BLOOD starring J. Warren Kerrigan. There were no matinees on Sunday, but matinees at 2 and 4 PM on Monday. The newspaper story makes no mention of musical accompaniment.
