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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
