Blaine Theatre. 225 West Main Street.

The Blaine Theatre was opened on September 1, 1926 with Colleen Moore in “It Must Be Love”. It was a single screen theatre with a balcony and was equipped with a Robert Morton 2 manual 4 ranks organ. The architectural firm was the Boller Brothers.

Due to instability, the decorative plaster work on the interior was removed in the 1950’s along with the stage house and rigging.

On June 16, 1978 the balcony was converted to a second screen and the theatre at that time was renamed the Cine 1 & 2 Theatre, reopening with Burt Reynolds in “Semi Tough” & Bruno Kirby in “Almost Summer”. It closed in 2001, and has since been demolished.

These exterior and (rare) interior shots uncover vaudeville roots for the Blaine Theatre. To view 1936 & 1940 photos type in word “blaine”…

Henryetta was hometown to Tony winning actress Alice Ghostley.

From looking at Google Maps, it appears as though this theater has been demolished.

The theater is standing if you look at this view from 3rd Street:

Once you try to zoom in, the building is reduced to a foundation.

Such a shame.

This site proves that only the sloped slab of the Cine 1 & 2 (nee-Blaine) remains.
Offered on these pages are also vintage views;

Charles Blaine decided to replace his aging Yale Theatre with a new and larger venue. He took an existing building and created the Blaine Theatre. At launch the Blaine had two Motiograph DeLuxe projectors and 20' tall sign with 400 bulbs. The grand opening featured Colleen Moore in “It Must be Love” supported by Our Gang in “Shivering Spooks,” a cartoon, and a newsreel called the Blaineogram on September 1, 1926. The theatre organ accompanied the films.

Under Griffith Amusement Circuit since 1928, the circuit installed Vitaphone on March 3, 1929 beginning with “Alias Jimmy Valentine.” Griffith gave the venue a major overhaul reopening as the New Blaine on March 6, 1941 with Jean Arthur in “Arizona.”

On August 1, 1954, the Blaine switched to widescreen projection to show CinemaScope titles starting with “The River of No Return.” The theatre was later renamed the Ciné in the 1970s and closed as a twin-screen facility. The Ciné was razed in 2008 following asbestos abatement and the Blaine’s organ was still in place at the time of the demolition.
