Washington has another historical theatre, the DeMill theatre which is around the corner from the Turnage, it is not renovated although several rumors over the years have surfaced. I would love to see it restored. The Demill threatre is on Market Street in Washington, NC.
It is a shame that the theatre of today is a heartless multiplex with no heart or class. This was one of the best, it always made me awestruck as a kid.
The Strand’s final curtain call was in the late 1960’s due to a fire. I attended it, the Grand and the Orpheum in Dubuque IA. Great theatres. The Orpheum has been restored as part of the Convention center on Main in Dubuque.
