Terry, the 1991 edition of Frank Manders book “Cinemas of Newcastle, page 25 has the same photograph of the front of the decorative balcony of the Adelaide Picture Hall. That same edition has a description of the Olympia Cinema which states that tip-up seats were installed in all parts of the hall and there were four sections of seating on a sloping floor. The above disputed photograph is not in either edition of Manders books.

Adding the word ‘The’ to a theatre name would make searching Cinema Treasures ne'er impossible. eg. ‘The’ Capitol', ‘The’ Rialto, ‘The’ State etc. To keep things consistent on the site, the word ‘The’ will not be used. The correct name is given on our link to The Clairidge website. Ken Roe, Theatre Editor.
Mikeoaklandpark; The former orchestra level is still original and uses the original proscenium. The front section of the balcony is divided into 3 small screens and the rear section of the balcony mezzanine is a single screen.
In November 2000 I organised a visit to New York City for the UK based Cinema Theatre Association, assisted by Brooklyn based Cezar Del Valle. The Grand Prospect Hall was one of 14 theatres on the 5-days itinerary and we were warmly greeted by Michale Halkias who had arranged a buffet lunch for the group of 56 CTA members. He will be sadly missed and would be appalled to see what has happened to his beautiful building.
The Empire Theatre, Main Street, Pascoag was listed in the 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Directory. It was the only movie theatre listed in that town.
In the 1926 edition of Film Daily Yearbook the 400-seat Star Theatre was the only theatre listed for Pascoag.
Joe, the architect was R.N. McEachern.
Joe, Many Thanks. Working on your speculations, I have tidied up the Polson pages.
Joe, a conundrum here, as the Lake Theatre page on Cinema Treasures gives an address of 49493 US-93(2nd Avenue). The old building at that address is not large enough to have been a theatre.
Just a note too, that there was also a 541-seat Park Theater operating in Polson, listed in FDY’s 1950 to 1955.
BillJunior: The Majestic Theatre, Springfield, IL does come up on a search of theatres with the Majestic name. Currently page 13 of ‘All Theatres’ when you type Majestic in the search box, this page for the Roxy Theatre comes up. I will contact the technical site manager regarding the insecure log-in. Thanks for telling us you enjoy the site. Ken Roe, Volunteer Theatre Editor.
It starred Moira Shearer
bob550: Thank you for sharing your sad news regarding Dennis J. Mahaney. His contributions to Cinema Treasures will remain as a testament to his passion for cinema buildings. Ken Roe, Volunteer Theatre Editor
