Warner Theatre Demolition

According to information from the Lynchburg Museum (Debbie Dedden) The first entry in the city directory for the Trenton Theatre was in 1913. By 1941, it was operated by Hunter Perry, a subsidiary of Paramount Pictures Inc. It was renamed the Warner Theatre in 1951. The Warner Theatre was closed in 1982 and was in the same year demolished to make way for the new Federal Court House.

All it takes is a stroll thru the google world to see what a nice place this was.

I went to see Disney’s “Jungle Book” and “The Aristocats” in this theatre. The last movie I ever saw in it was “Willard.” I will say that the Feds didn’t own that building; they sold the old court house to the city for its use and leased the structure built on the Warner site. The new Federal Court House is a wonderful building adapting and adding to an old school. They left the “warner site” because that building had sick building syndrome.
