HowardBHaasHowardBHaas on January 23, 2022 at 7:04 am (remove) I posted 10 photos. Last night, with 2 friends, drove from Philadelphia and enjoyed “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” (1962) projected in 35mm via 1938 Simplex projectors & carbon arc projection, a rarity now anywhere in the world! Classic movies done right! The organ played, intro was given, vintage trailers & shorts, the curtain opened, movie was shown. Movie was only $6, popcorn was only $2.

The George M Schwartz chain from Dover Delaware operated the Everett Theatre in Middletown Delaware from some time in at least the 1950’s until the mid 1970’s.

a belated congrats to the Everett Theatre for getting back up on its feet. It’s a wonderful theater, and I’ve had the chance to perform there during the Peach Festival.

I was an extra when they shot Dead Poets Society there in the fall of 1988…Beautiful theatre…glad they have kept it up! Now if only the REST of main street in Middletown got the same attention- it has such GREAT potential.

We were driving home from D.C. last week and we passed right by this little jewel ! If I were driving I would have crashed the car ! They were showing “House of Wax” in 3-D ! In Brooklyn they’ve all been destroyed, but lookee here in Delaware !

The Everett Theater hosts a variety of activities. One of the things I enjoy most about the theater is that it hosts re-releases of classic films. Unfortunately these special movie events are normally presented one showing, one night only and are rarely advertised well in advance.

Two years ago we were at the Everett and enjoyed a wonderfully restored print of IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE. Unfortunately the short notice advertisements have meant that my family and I have missed showings of THE WIZARD OF OZ, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, and GETTYSBURG to name a few.
