The Fairborn Theatre was opened by Chakeres Theatres on January 27, 1948 and was the chain’s 47th theatre. The Fairborn Theatre was twinned on February 10, 1973. Chakeres closed the Fairborn Twin Cinema in November 1999 with Neve Campbell in “Three to Tango” and Julia Roberts in “Runaway Bride”.
Chakeres donated the Fairborn Twin Cinema in 2002 for a community arts group who planned to restore Fairborn Twin Cinemas back to a single screen theatre but have been delayed several times. The theatre needs a new roof, plumbing going from the street to the building, new plumbing throughout the theatre, new heating and cooling, the marquee is in need of TLC, and there is a major pigeon problem, just to name a few things wrong with the Fairborn Theatre.
The cost is reported to be around $5-6 million dollars, so we will have wait to see what happens. The Fairborn Theatre was a beautiful theatre, but 15-years of neglect by Chakeres and over 7-years of abandonment have not helped.
