Movie Theaters >> Cinema III


Address: 220 Bridge St
City: Charlevoix State: MI Zip: 49720 Phone:  
County: Charlevoix
Notes:

Long a fixture on Bridge Street, the main artery through the picturesque town of Charlevoix, the Cinema III originally opened as the Palace Theater. It was designed in a mock-Tudor style, painted in shades of blue in its later years, and had a small balcony.

For many years, it ran films only in the summer months, as Charlevoix, in the first part of the twentieth century, was a summer resort town. Around 1959, new owners changed the name to the Cinema III (which was strange, since it remained a single screen theater until its closing), and it became a year-round theater.

It closed around 2002 when its owner built a new Cinema III (with three screens) on nearby Antrim Street. The former theater became a clothing store. [Cinema Treasures - Christopher Walczak]

I used to spend my summer weekends with my Mom and Dad on their sailboat in Charleviox. I only saw two movies there: Bachelor Party and Top Gun I consider Charlevoix as an integral part of the tapestry that formed the Michigan of My Youth Sad to see its simply another store now.

I wish I had a picture of the old theater to contribute. I grew up in Charlevoix, and the theater was awesome! It had a balcony that was open sometimes, and since it only had one screen,if a movie was particularly popular, it would be held over for several weeks.

The Cinema II is now closed and has been converted to a clothing store.
