Previously operated by: Alliance Theater Corp.
Architects: Louis Harry Warriner
Functions: Movies (First Run)
Built in 1934 in an English Tudor style, it was sold to Alliance Theatre Corp. in 1944, and burned in 1946. It was rebuilt in 1947. This classic movie house in downtown Syracuse still features it’s original Art Moderne style marquee, but its original facade, however, of sleek, Streamline Vitrolite, and a chrome-lined box office, has long since been replaced with 1970’s-vintage faux-rock and the box office has been moved indoors.
Still, the Pickwick Theatre is a Syracuse favorite, and a rare small town old-fashioned movie theater still screening first-run fare after more than six decades in operation.
In 2009, it received a total booth upgrade to 2K Chridstie Digital projection, Digital sound and Real D 3D. The marquee was renewed in 2010.
