one of the 6s was damaged in a storm last week
Found a picture of the Grand Opera House
you went in the door after getting your ticket outside from the booth, it had a small snack bar with popcorn on the right side but have no memories of what the theater looked like inside except it was plain walls and always seemed dark.
I found Israel P. “Put” Williams on http://www.findagrave.com. His wifes name was Delphus Williams.
You are right about the Grand Opera house. It is on the 1909 Sanborn map. I read that it burned at some time and is now a vacant lot.
From the Powers Museum site
check this out Joe Vogel https://www.facebook.com/PowersMuseumCurator/photos/a.176248022419381.38720.167192136658303/944095195634656/?type=1&theater
I shared this info with the Powers Museum of Carthage, Missouri.
Powers Museum also listed 3 other theaters in Carthage the Royal, Cameo & Colonial. but no locations or info.
thank you Joe
How do you add movies to this list the Powers museum posted a map today with an open air theater in Carthage called the Airdome.
I went to the Roxie alot as a child and teenager.
This was taken in the 1970s the day after it burned.
The opera house was on the 2nd floor and Keith McBride is working on restoring it.
the picture above is not where the Roxie was but it is the site of the Burlingame and Chaffee Opera House. The Roxie was in the middle of the block.
I posted them on the photo pages.
I posted pics of the Roxie and The Delphus.
I posted a photo from 1949.
I think it was where the Tiger later was.
The theater was part of the old Harrington Hotel
I added a photo from 1914.
Joe Vogel none of your links are working now but 2 years ago I copied the article on to a private group of people from Carthage. I will try to post them here. Thank you for your research.
