Here is an April 1930 ad from the Adams County Free Press:
Looks like it’s closed. Here is another photo:
After being purchased and renovated, the “Corning American Theatre” is now RE-OPENED (June 2014)! Their website is http://www.corningamericantheater.com and information is also available on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/corningamericantheater
The news about the re-opening is available here: http://acfreepress.com/public_html/front-page-news/cornings-american-theater-a-sequel-the-silver-screen-returns-to-corning-on-june-6
This newly renovated theatre has 100 hi-back rocker seats. Theatre is handicap accessible. The distance between the seat rows was increased 5 inches over standard to ensure a more comfortable movie experience. Dolby surround sound and a digital projector produce an awesome movie watching experience. Prices for concessions are very reasonable.
Attended a matinée showing of “How to Train Your Dragon 2” and the screen/sound where outstanding. Prices are VERY reasonable. The matinée and children ticket prices are $5 and for adults for evening shows are $7. Purchasing a combo of 2 large drinks and a large popcorn was only $11 at the Corning American Theatre. I usually have to pay closer to $20 for the same thing in a larger city like Omaha, NE. I was highly impressed to say the least.
