Here are some recent (summer 2011) pictures from a 100+ degree day.
A picture of the theater from June 2011 is here.
A multiplex that isn’t an eyesore. Here is a 2010 view.
Here is a 2010 view of the Premiere 6.
The shopping center it is in took a direct hit from a small tornado around March 2009. The front looks considerably different from Jack’s pictures, which were taken three years earlier.
Many area residents were delighted that it reopened. This theater is locally owned. The picture and sound are good, the concession prices are reasonable by comparison to the nearby multiplexes, and they show 3 or fewer trailers and no unrelated ads before they start the feature! This is a fave, despite it’s plain appearance!
Here is a 2010 photo.
The Lincoln closed for several years during the 1980s. I enjoyed seeing a handful of movies here after it reopened, before it was twinned. It is a real treasure!
I love the exterior of this theater! Here are some recent views.
This was a real lost treasure, a real beauty. I was fortunate enough to see the special edition of “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” here a short time before the fire.
Here is a link to the actual location. It is roughly the intersection of Pershing, Converse, and 19th Street. Street view gives a good view of the 1970s architecture (note the shingles on the lobby).
My grandparents lived withing walking distance so I was able to be at the first showing of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” at this theater in 1981!
This was built as a twin. The third screen was added at some point during the early 1980s (some time between the Paramount fire and the then-6 screen multiplex at Frontier Mall. A good family friend was the roofing contractor on the new screen.
I hope this helps. I am loving the look and functionality of the redesigned site!
