Previously operated by: Kallet Theaters Inc.
Styles: Art Deco
Built in 1922 and named after the opera star Amelita Galli-Curci who had a home in Highmount. Perhaps opened as legit theater and converted to cinema. Deco style marquee and fabrics.
Functioned as a cinema until closing in 1985. In 1987 it became a multi-dealer antiques center which has since closed. Plans in 2005 to convert it into several screens never got off the ground. New owners took over in October 2019 and are researching possibility of restoration and of the future use for the building.

I noticed that the photobucket links have an expiration date for some reason. Most of the previous photos posted are no longer available.
Gerald, I’ve added two photos on photobucket.com under the Album Name “GALLI-CURCI”. I’m a bit inept at this and can’t seem to get those photos to relate to the cinematreasures.org website. Ken, hope you enjoy these as well. I’ll shortly be adding the vintage ad for movies playing at the G-C Theater as well as, hopefully, copies of G-C’s handwritten letters that I own. Randall

If you can’t access the three G-C pictures I’ve posted so far, send me your e.mail addresses and I’ll send them directly to you.
Is anyone reading my messages? I haven’t heard from you! I spent a lot of time scanning several G-C items and would love to share them.
Just posting this so I’ll be notified when someone replies. -Randall-
I have gathered a lot more information about the building since I started this listing. Does anyone know how I edit the description? Jonathan Starch, .com
