You can see a black and white photo of the Varsity back in 1949 here.
we went here tonight to see IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON, great movie, great theater, though it’s a pitty it was cut up into a muliplex, it’s still nice, but I can only imagine what it looked like in it’s prime.
From the 1940s a postcard view of the Varsity Theater in Ashland.
Recent photos can be seen here, here, and here.
Before the renovation to being a multi-plex, did the Varsity have a stage, or just a screen at the front; and if a stage, is it still there? I acquire and restore old theatres to original looks and also hold live stage events at them. you can contact me at my business email Don
