That’s it? No dates, address, building type?

These sort of contributions are useless.

I believe the CT Admins add these limited information early theatres once confirmed, as a basis for other contributors to build onto as further research is done. For instance I cross checked with the CinemaTour page for Dunsmore PA, and found an Orient Theatre at 204-14 S. Blakely St. that does not yet have a CT page. But they had no listing for the Happy Hour. I then found a Dunsmore Historical Society on Facebook, and messaged them for any info on the Happy Hour they may be able to provide. In 16 years I’ve added plenty of theatres with basic information, and then was able to add photos and additional history as I researched them in the following days. Sometimes it takes the CT Admins several days to add submissions, so we contributors have to e-mail ourselves any additional info we find in the meantime, until we can add it to an approved page. Remember even photos cannot be added to a submission, they can only be added after one is approved. Once a photo is uploaded to a “no address” theatre, I do a street view search with a generic “100 Main Street” in the given city, and miraculously have found the very building in the one photo provided. I can then add the missing address. If the CT Admins ignored every submission that had limited information, but were able to document it’s existence, then they would just have to add them at a later date anyway, if and when they were resubmitted again by someone else.

David, the Orient does have a page on CT, the person who listed it said it was in the Dunsmore section of Scranton, which is the city next to Dunsmore. I discovered that this afternoon when I went looking for this venue, was going to list it until one search on Google led me to its page here on CT. I'm currently writing a bit to put there to get a correction, along with how this mistake was probably made and a couple of pictures from around the time it opened.

I couldn't find anything about the Happy Hour in a search covering 1910 thru 1960, so far.

Thanks. So even further proof that limited information submissions are a good thing. You never would have discovered the wrong Orient listing, were it not for this Happy Hour submission.

Per the Dunsmore Historical Society: “It was located on North Blakely St. Approximately across the street from the current post office. The locacation is now part of the Fidelity Bank parking lot.”
