Looks authentic to me ! Hello Bruce !
Thanks Ken,with a more complete listing one can now google the address and actually see the building.
No overview,only one photo,no history,no other theatres for over thirty miles,very sad and lonely. If not for the half a sign left hanging the Vermillion could be mistaken for anything but a Theatre,Kinda reminds me of the Pastime in Ramey PA,without the attached post office.
good news folks !
Now that is funny
A photo on the Capitol Theatre web site shows The “Park Theatre” right across the street, but there is no listing for the Park Theatre anywhere. The Green County Courthouse now stands where the Park was located.
Google shows this building today as a law firm
The EVERETT is now UNDER RESTORATION , I have tried to upload new photos and information about upcoming events but keep getting the same message
We’re sorry, but something went wrong.We’ve been notified about this issue and we’ll take a look at it shortly.
Has any one else had this issue ?
Current condition of the Cascade /Knox Building
This one was a bit tricky because there are three listings for CASCADE theaters in New Castle PA.This information should be correctly linked to the proper location Which is a fairly important part of exhibition history in the United States The Articals and Google link added below to the Photo section should help clear things up . Both articals are from March of 1996.The first was an AP story with no author or photo credit .The second was a Pittsburgh Post-Gazzett story by Bette McDevitt & photo credits to V W H Campbell Jr. For a look at the Current building see the link below
New Photos and information added to the Photo section.
Photo above from an uncredited AP artical from March 15,1996 that appeard in the Greensburg Tribune Review.The link below shows the current location and condition of the Cascade/Knox building in New Castle PA
To 50sSNIPES ,that was my 1st thought a few day ago as well .A Google earth search takes you to the center of a strip mall ,but if you manually search from there the princess is over in the very far corner and sits alone. Of course the google photos are from a while ago and are undated. However the website is still active and as of December 12th there are actually showtimes listed for Ghostbusters afterlife and Encanto. Thoughts and prayers for eveybody over there
On a recent trip to Lancaster with her husband my daughter sent me updated shots of the Rialto intetior. She also imformed me that the RIALTO is actually a “two screen” movie house, one large room for newer films and a small screening room with about twenty seats . New photos added to the photo section …..Photo Credits to Jenn Hagan,Thanks Jenn/Love You
I am kind of shocked that there is no mention of Michael Jacksons “Thriller” in any of the comments or overview for the Palace. Especially since the video is over 35 years old now Close to 800 million views for “Thriller ” on YouTube alone could quite possibly make the PALACE the most famous theaters of all time
I’m guessing the person who juxtaposed the “B” and the “R” is the same person who took the picture before the manager caught on
A google search of of the Queen shows what looks like a screening room
of some kind called the STAFFORD THEATER. right next to the Queen ….any information or photos of that location ?
The Ritz has ( or had ) a fully functional fish tank in the back of the lobby when I was there a few years ago . Manager was very nice to speak with and the neon Marquee is beautiful at night
Paul, the only other person I have ever heard refer to the BLVD of The Allies as “FILM ROW” beside you was Film Critic and C T contributor Ed Blank. If you ever see this I would love to talk to about “Film Row”
The Video Mr. Haas provided a link for is worth the visit. The short portion about the Landsdowne leans a bit more towards the town and the people but is very nicely done
moviemanretired…Hello I would like to speak with you about movie theaters in New castle ….specifically “The Cinema” not sure how often you visit CT anymore but look forward to hearing from you ,JHHAGAN……
Two of my all time favorite films playing at two of my all time favorite theaters less than 100 feet apart, those were the days and that is a wonderful photograph. Thanks David
