Schine Theatre, Auburn

Schine Theatre, AuburnThe Schine Theatre (1938) in Auburn, NY was designed John Eberson, a specialist theater designer for the Schine Brothers as part of their extensive theatre chain.

At Auburn, Eberson's design included comets and shooting stars and vivid colours which can still be seen in the doors and ticket box. The building ceased to be a cinema in 1979 and after various uses, finished up as a video store that closed in 1992.

Schine Theatre, AuburnFor several years it remained vacant and was purchased by the Cayuga County Arts Council in 1998.

The Arts Council are working to restore the theatre and make it a viable arts and entertainment hub for Auburn.

I wish them luck in their future plans for this wonderful theatre.
