Florida Theatre, Jacksonville, FL
Florida Theatre, Jacksonville, FL
Florida Theatre, 128 East Forsyth Street, Jacksonville, Florida. When the beautiful Florida Theatre re-opened its doors following a major restoration effort in 1983, few people could have foreseen the incredible record of activity and community service that has marked the past 25 years. More than 4,500 different events of all kinds have taken place here, attended by nearly 4.3 million people. Approximately 60% of the theatre’s use has been by local not-for-profit organizations of every description, and programs have reached out to virtually every segment of northeast Florida’s population. Without a doubt, the community’s investment in the restoration, renovation and operation of this historic treasure has been returned many times over. The Florida Theatre originally opened on April 8, 1927, as downtown Jacksonville's 15th—and largest—movie theatre. With lavish interior decor unmatched in Jacksonville, the Florida Theatre is the city's last remaining example of 1920's fantasy architecture. The elaborate interior was designed by R.E. Hall of New York and Jacksonville architect Roy Benjamin. Hall began his career with the prestigious architectural firm McKim, Mead and White and is responsible for numerous theatres, including the Eastman in Rochester, N.Y., the Metropolitan in Houston, Texas and the Keith's Georgia in Atlanta, Ga. Benjamin, whose local firm was the forerunner of KBJ Architects, built several theatres throughout the South, many of which are now considered historic landmarks. The Florida Theatre displays many characteristics of the Mediterranean Revival, one of the most prominent architectural styles associated with Florida’s building boom during the 1920s. While designing the Florida Theatre, the architects envisioned a Moorish courtyard at night, resplendent with glittering stars, grand balconies and fountains. An ornate proscenium arch that reaches nearly six stories high dominates the auditorium. The incredible acoustics and near-perfect sight lines make every one of the theatre’s 1,900 seats exceptional. On the building’s original roof garden, patrons in the late 1920s danced under the stars, while the theatre provided a nursery for the patrons’ young children. The theatre boasted many features unique in the 1920s, including central heating, air-conditioning and vacuuming systems. Like many theatres of its day, the Florida Theatre was designed for both stage shows and motion pictures. A typical evening at the Florida Theatre included six program elements—the news, a comedy short, a cartoon or travelogue, an overture by the band on its moveable orchestra pit (with an occasional sing-along), a live stage presentation and the feature film. Unfortunately, with the advent of talkies and the decline of Vaudeville’s popularity, most of the nation’s great picture palaces became white elephants soon after their heyday. Thanks to the creative management of Jacksonville’s Guy Kenimer, the Florida Theatre remained active well beyond the Depression, supplementing film screenings with many other forms of entertainment. Although the theatre closed briefly several times, it was saved from bankruptcy by special programs such as "Screeno," a bingo game played on the movie screen, and "Bank Night,” which gave ticket buyers a chance to win cash prizes. The Florida Theatre's management also spurred community involvement with such programs as the Happy Hearts Club, which for almost 20 years provided Christmas toys for underprivileged children. One of the most memorable events in the theatre's history occurred in 1956, when Elvis Presley came to the Florida Theatre for one of his first headline concert appearances on an indoor stage. Presley, the City of Jacksonville and the Florida Theatre found themselves subjects of a LIFE Magazine feature when Juvenile Court Judge Marion Gooding sat through the performance to ensure that Presley's body movements would not become too suggestive. Throughout the early 1960s, locally produced opera, dance and dramatic presentations in the theatre increased popularity, and civic use—trade shows, fashion shows, benefits and meetings—contributed to making the Florida Theatre a hub of constant activity in Jacksonville. In the late 1960s, during a period of local and national inner-city decline, the theatre’s management attempted to draw the public back into the theatre by installing the then popular rocking-chair seats and upgrading the quality of films being shown. First-run films such as "Hello, Dolly" and "Paint Your Wagon" were shown, but ultimately failed to bring in large enough crowds. From the early 1970s, until the Theatre was closed on May 8, 1980, B-grade and action movies were shown and the theatre remained only marginally profitable even with concession sales. In 1981, grants from the State of Florida and City of Jacksonville, combined with substantial private sector commitments made it possible for the Arts Assembly
Del Mar Theatre, Santa Cruz CA
Del Mar Theatre, Santa Cruz CA
History of the Del Mar Theatre The Theatre Del Mar originally opened on August 14, 1936. On the bill was a Mickey Mouse cartoon called The Alpine Climber a Paramount newsreel featuring Jesse Owens' triumph at the Berlin Olympics and the world premiere of the Warner Brothers' film China Clipper. Built by the Pacific States Amusements and Realty Corporation, the Del Mar was built as a shining example of the theater itself being part of the show. Outside, a wild convergence of decorative styles -- typical of Art Deco -- partied on the face of the building. Vertical cement ribbing soared heavenward toward the water motif moldings (a theme echoed throughout the building) lacing the top of the facade. The suspended canopy marquee dripped with colorful neon animation. Underneath, golden stars and white lights welcomed the public, while the blinking vertical blade above spelled out D-E-L-M-A-R in three colors of neon. The Del Mar marquee became such a part of downtown architecture that in the late 1960s it was declared exempt from the street's sign abatement ordinance. Inside the lobby, interior designer William Chevalis, who had designed a number of California theatres, dazzled theatregoers right as they entered. The majestic cathedral ceiling, two stories high and embellished with real gold leaf, informed the ticketholder they had left the cares of the everyday world behind. The water theme could be found everywhere: in the seashell pattern of the carpet, with the nude figures in bas relief bearing urns, and through wave-like patterns in the tiling. Sheaves of wheat and five-pointed stars were other motifs to be found throughout, particularly in the lighting fixtures and decor of the main auditorium. Hailed as one of the best-equipped theatres in the state, the Del Mar featured state-of-the-art projection and sound systems. The main theater held 950 seats, with additional seating of 350 in the balcony. General admission cost 25 cents; loge seats in the balcony 30 cents. The phone number: 80. Well into the World War 2 era, the Del Mar was open daily from 2 to 11 pm. Patrons simply showed up at their convenience, and they would be ushered to their seats in the middle of the feature if they so desired. Or they could wait in the nicely-appointed mezzanine lounging area, smoke, and listen for the announcement that the film was about to start. The ushers and usherettes wore rust-colored uniforms. The ushers wore white gloves and developed a series of hand signals to communicate with the usherettes who would escort people to their seats. At one time there was a blondes-only policy for the usherette position. At least one former usherette recalls pouring peroxide on her hair for the job, much to the dismay of her mother. Operated by the Golden State Theatres chain, whose management properties also included The Santa Cruz Theatre at the corner of Walnut and The Rio on Soquel at Seabright, the Del Mar was such an attractive theater that a near-identical twin was built in Redding. The Cascade, like the Del Mar, is currently being restored by a non-profit community group. In the 1940s, admission prices soared to a whopping 35 cents general admission; 40 cents for loges. Children could get in for 10 cents. The DelMarette soda fountain opened next door and stayed open to midnight. The Sentinel reported soldiers dancing on the countertops to the sounds of the diner's jukebox until closing time. With the 1950s came several disasters that affected the movies in general and the Del Mar in particular. First came television. The novelty of this newfangled stay-at-home entertainment severely affected box office numbers nationwide. In 1955, Santa Cruz suffered from a terrible flood. Water from the San Lorenzo rose to the tops of parking meters along Pacific Ave. The damage to the Santa Cruz Theatre was so severe the theatre closed for good. It is now memorialized by a historic plaque on the Walnut Avenue wall of the East-West shop. The downstairs auditorium and lobby of the Del Mar were flooded. The theatre was closed for several weeks for clean-up and carpet replacement. In spite of the challenges, The Del Mar rallied and survived. A concessions stand was added to generate additional income. In the late 1960s, the bucolic Pacific Garden Mall was constructed along Pacific Avenue. With wide, park-like sidewalks, the main street of downtown became more friendly to foot traffic than to cars. The Del Mar demolished its original free-standing box office; surrounded by so much sidewalk, the ticketsellers seemed adrift in a sea of concrete. In the 1970s, the Del Mar was purchased by United Artists. The original redwood doors were replaced by modern glass and chrome. Thin, bile-green veneer tile was applied to the exterior of the building, replacing the original ceramic tiles. Inside, the building was left to deteriorate. No upgrades were made to the theater's heating or plumbing. Tears in the seats and carpets were band-aided wi
