There are now three Baby Grand Theatres listed on Cinema Treasures. Such an unusual name.
I would love to see interior photos of this attractive theatre.
I believe this is photo was actually taken in the projection booth of the Star-Lite Drive In Theatre, also in Winter Garden.
This is probably showing the removal of the vertical sign prior to moving it to a film/theatre museum. (1990s)
This is the Grand Theatre, located on Pine Street.
When the reopening was attempted, the Uma Theatre was under the management of MCM Theatres.
A sad history on this venue.
How horrifying to see all of the workmanship that created this beautiful theatre destroyed.
This theatre pretty much burned to the ground in the late 1960s or early 1970s.
Congratulations to all of you who participated in the reopening of this fine theatre. The pictures look great!

Florida Theatre, Jacksonville, FL, ushers. My uncle, Arthur Lipscomb, is the last one on the right with his hand over his chest. Date unknown, but he told me he was on the first team of ushers when the Florida opened.
I was in Bend yesterday and visited the Tower Theatre. What a beautiful renovation—an Art Deco masterpiece! Thank you for allowing me to walk around the interior. You folks have much to be proud of.
The first 3D picture of the 1950s, BWANA DEVIL, played at the Roxy in 1952. Florida State Theatres apparently decided to play this high draw picture at the Roxy, possibly hoping to increase attendance at the theatre, and to help make people newly aware of its presence.

Is there any possibility that the Victor Theatre had some connection with, or was named after the Victor Animatograph Corporation, which was also located in Davenport?
This booklet on the history of the Winter Garden theatres is available for purchase at the Garden Theatre and the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation History Center. The price is $5.00.
This Floridian attended a performance of THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE last week at the EET. What a beautiful theatre this is, and the performance was awesome. Logan should be very proud of this venue.
1943 Crescent Theatre photo added to photo section.
Back when the State Theatre was a movie house, there were circuit breakers backstage for an organ. The American Theatre Organ Society may have information on what kind of organ was once located in the theatre.
Recent research as shown the Roxy’s address as 220 West Church Street in Orlando. Please reflect this change above.
