The theater has been de-twinned and is now a christian youth center. It was a neat theater but somewhat dirty. Still it was sad to see it go – now we have to drive out to the fringe of town and go to the megaplex.
The inside… I am pretty sure the seats are original because they can be really uncomfortable! Other than that the rest of the theater space is in good condition. There is sort of a fifties vibe to the lobby with modern inspired “floating” stairs that lead to up to the theater space covered in a worn down red carpet. Unfortunately from a design standpoint nothing else too spectacular I can recall. But it is warm and inviting, is clean and safe and is well kept. I once saw a film at the joy or lowes theater on Canal Street – and I kid you not – there was a hole in the roof where rain was dripping in. You could see outside. And a fire alarm was beeping every 30 seconds or so non-stop.
