The 5/9 PhillyVoice confirms the Warner facade will be part of “The Hook” , which will entertain visitors each week with an international cast of adult-comedy hosts, acrobats and variety artists from around the world, as well as a new restaurant and cocktail bars.

Just updated the Warner aka Warren theatre with ads, articles and pictures on the incinerama.com web site - https://incinerama.com/warnerac.htm . The name of the theatre was Warren from 6/18/58 until it was demolished (check the ads and articles on the web site). Please don’t copy anything to this web site.

Like everything else the bowling alley closed and was demolished for a casino parking lot. They kept the marquee and entrance.

It is reported that this Warner Theater site will be the new home for Spiegleworld, a live action circus performance troupe that has been in Atlantic City for several years.

This theater was called the Warner when it closed not the Warren. The name should be changed.

Reopened as Warren By Hamad theatres on June 18th, 1958 and closed later that season. It reopened on July 29th, 1960 with “Windjammer” in the cinemiracle process. Ads posted.

I have two original seats from the Atlantic City Warner Theatre. There are two figures in Moorish-style clothing depicted in the cast iron seat sides. Based on what I’ve seen in old photos, those seats were originally painted with different colors for contrasting details, but at some point they were repainted a uniform brown (no doubt to save money.) I’m considering repainting, but only if I can identify the original color scheme (all photos I’ve found of the AC Warner seats are b&w.) Does anyone know what the original colors were for my seats? Thanks.

Strange that I see articles in July 1960 that also mention its going to be razed in the fall 1960.

Never mind, I found an article that says Windjammer will start on July 29, 1960 at the Warren.

There was a mention that in the summer of 1959 or 1960 Windjammer played in Cinemiracle at the Warren. I can’t find any ads for this. All I see are ads for live shows during those two summers. In late 1960 the interior was demolished.

The marquee can be seen in this 1941 photo:

You can see the marquee in this postcard:

The Warner was a hot dog place in the 1980s called Boardwalk Rogers:

What is behind the facade now? Nothing, or part of the casino?

A better, hi-res scan of the postcard showing the interior can be seen in my flickr stream: View link
As my card wasn’t posted, I can’t say from when it was, but I bet the photo was taken around the opening as is so often the case with postcards promoting a theater.

In 1971, The Steel pier Music Hall had Simplex E-7 projectors & Ashcraft Super High arc lamps. Hall & Connell spot lights. The screen was on a “fly”. The two man projection shift operators were Ed Oliver, & Goerge Innis.

In the Casino Theatre, were a pair of Simplex XL projectors & Peerless Magnarc carbon arc lamps. The operators were Lou Glendenon, & Frank Bernato. I probably messed up their names.

Behind the Casino projection booth was a room with metal letters that ran on a convayor belt. They brushed against electified feelers for the giant marquee chaser sign.

Thanks, Warren, for posting that.

Same thing in Los Angeles. The downtown Warner was the Warren in the seventies.

Yes, there are lots of changes in Atlantic City. Most of the old, grand buildings on the boardwalk are gone.
