If you have more information re: plans in ‘85 to reopen the Grand, please send to and title it Grand Theatre. Thanks.

I am having an exhibit to honor this ‘grand’ old lady of the art deco era June 30-August 6 in Westfield NY. Collecting and finding artifacts continues to be a ‘Labor of Love’. A reception will be held June 30 from 6-8 with light refreshments at the Lake Shore Center for the Arts.

Does anyone recall the first names of the Blatt Brothers?

Glad to see you’re still commenting on Cinema Treasures. You, like me love to visit these theatres in person and our passion shows in the comments we make.

The Grand was my hometown theatre and I miss it. Wish I could post the exhibit poster for Remembering the Grand.

Many theatres through the years offered what was advertised as Bank Night. Can anyone tell me its history/origin in re: to theatres?

The address is incorrect. It should be 2 North Portage. It is not closed. It was, sadly, demolished in 1992.
