Pretty sure the Paramount was dead before Covid.
Events happen at the Kings all the time. I’d suggest following their social media pages if you want to see what’s going on.
This theater is currently being demolished.
Ron – I’m well aware of that. We’re transitioning from having paid employees to completely volunteer run. There would have been news as well as a regular return of the readerboard while back, but hopefully it will be out in the next few weeks.
Ron – Conclave 2020 was postponed due to covid-19, not the reorganization of THS. It will still be in Boston next year provided we’re allowed to have events like that by then. A public announcement is coming (along with an announcement about relaunching of Marquee), but the pandemic has pushed a few things back. A few people have termed off the board, but we’ll be replacing them. That’s the extent of the “reorganization.”
David – You’re welcome, but you must have me confused with another photographer re the Granada. I was 7 when it was demolished.
Just posted about The United Artists on After the Final Curtain It was one of my favorite places to photograph.
Status should be opened. The theater reopened on January 9, 2020.
It didn’t have an organ when it originally opened, and doesn’t have any organ chambers. They probably didn’t want to spend the extra money to work that out.
I recently visited the Colonial Theatre. Check out some photos and a short history at After the Final Curtain
Demolished or gutted, either way nothing remains of the original theater.
Not really. This theater was demolished and replaced with condos. That new building has a small theater in it that is named after this one.
A few years ago I was allowed to photograph the Queens Theatre. Check out some of the photos and a short write up at After the Final Curtain.

This theater isn’t open.
The whole building is going to be demolished. The land marked portions were removed. The plan is to restore them off site and reinstall them when construction is almost complete.
Yes, it’s still happening. It’s June 23-29, but the Keith’s isn’t on the list.
It’s called TheatreCon now.
Yes, it had a Wurlitzer Opus 1430 2m/10rk. It was installed around 1926.
Current status should be demolished. Looks like it was demoed around 2015.
I photographed the Roxie a few years ago. Check out some photos and a short write up at After the Final Curtain
I recently photographed the Sorg Opera House. Check out some photos and a short write up at: After the Final Curtain
Also, status should be open. It reopened in the fall of 2017.
There’s nothing left of the theater, Chris.
I visited the Arcade a while back. Check out a short write up and some photos at After the Final Curtain
Theatrefan – There’s nothing left of the interior. Not sure when it was removed though.
