DavidZornig commented about Savoy Theatre on Feb 24, 2024 at 5:53 pm

The building was originally built in 1885 per the Box Office article about the 1974 remodel linked below. So a theatre may not have been the original tenant, unless it was for stage plays or a hall of some kind.

All print ads indicate the address was 210 N. Main Street. (214 is what is used today by World Insurance Associates LLC who conjoined two buildings.) 1947 photo added to gallery.

DavidZornig commented about Granada Theatre on Feb 16, 2024 at 12:44 am

sam siklas, it premiered at the Granada 11/19/75, with both stars and the director there in person. I uploaded the below photo to the gallery in 2015. Ebert was probably confused about the Uptown. I’ve found other errors in his books. He thought that the band The Tubes was the Electric Light Orchestra in the film “Xanadu” in his 1980 review. Electric Light Orchestra never appeared in the film. They only supplied half of the soundtrack.

You reversed the image, but it was actually correct.
Look at the marquee, Cinema is backwards in your version.

“Good Pic” is backwards, but the image is actually correct.
Look at the word Cinema above the theatre entrance.

Not finding a Facebook page specific to the Anson Theater. Just the Anson-Jones Museum which seems to promote them. Do you have a link to the theater’s Facebook page?
