It was open when I photographed it in August of 2022.

A Lowe’s hardware store and apartments are now on the site. This should be listed as demolished.

The building at 218 N Dargon St is indeed a barber college, but the above picture is now an architectural firm located at 155 N Dargon. Which one is the theater?

The building pictured here maps to 120 N Liberty St. and is occupied by a law office.

Sorry to see the marquee is gone. I loved seeing it on Greenmount before turning at 33rd street heading to Memorial Stadium to see the O’s.

Norman Plant commented about Uptown Theatre on Sep 23, 2022 at 8:46 pm

When I drove by the Uptown in August the doors were open and construction trucks were parked in front of the theater. Obviously some work is being done on the interior.

This location is now a Wal Mart.

Norman Plant commented about Lyric Theater on Jun 3, 2022 at 7:00 pm

It looks like the original Lyric was located at approximately at 203 W 4th Street, and this one (just across Washington on 4th Street) was originally an Opera House that was converted by the Masonic Lodge for their use. It may have been used as a theater (the New Lyric) to replace the original Lyric in the next block, or it could have just been an Opera House converted by the Masons. Either way, the Preston was some distance from these two buildings.

The 306 N Washington address refers to the side entrance of the theater which is the entrance of the Masonic Lodge. The front of the theater (H&R Block) is actually 123 W 4th Street.

This is now the Ritz Center. Address is 213 Hickman Road, Tabor City, NC. Hickman Road is on the opposite side of the railroad tracks from South Main St.

Norman Plant commented about Northwest Plaza Cinema on Sep 10, 2021 at 12:17 am

The 9-plex was inside the mall when they enclosed it. This was a stand alone building out by Lindbergh on the parking lot.

Norman Plant commented about Cinema 1 Plus on Apr 26, 2021 at 1:40 am

The cinema is not at Hwy 47. It is further south at Rabbit Trail and Hwy 100, south of the Walmart on the opposite of the street. The sign is on Hwy 100, but the cinema sits back a block and faces away from the Highway.

I’ve been through Sparta many times through the years, and I can confirm that grassy vacant lot is where the Sparta Theater once stood.

Norman Plant commented about 61 South Drive-In on Apr 1, 2021 at 10:10 pm

I go past this one every week, and as of today this one is still intact. Some buildings are on the property and the snack bar will probably need attention to open, but otherwise it’s ready.

Norman Plant commented about Truman 4 Theatres on Jan 18, 2021 at 1:49 am

When I went through Jeff City last summer I had noticed that this theater had been demolished.

Norman Plant commented about Hi Way Theatre on Jan 17, 2021 at 9:21 pm

The address is correct but it is mapping wrong. It is actually west of Hwy 61-67 (Truman Blvd) in Crystal City. What makes things confusing is a couple blocks further north you enter the town of Festus and the name of the road changes to Main Street. The LaJade is about five blocks west on Main.

Norman Plant commented about Lincoln Theatre on Nov 19, 2020 at 8:50 pm

The Lincoln is within walking distance of the courthouse and Courthouse Square (which is actually a roundabout circle).

Norman Plant commented about Moto Vu Drive-In on Jun 17, 2020 at 10:20 pm

I’ve literally driven past this spot hundreds of times and never realized there was once a drive-in there.

Norman Plant commented about Isis Theater on May 25, 2020 at 5:55 pm

Seth, I agree with you about the remodel, especially after seeing the pics of the original look. I know when I went by to photograph it I was somewhat underwhelmed but at least it was still operating.
