There are now three Baby Grand Theatres listed on Cinema Treasures. Such an unusual name.

This is probably showing the removal of the vertical sign prior to moving it to a film/theatre museum. (1990s)

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.

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 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.

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.
