Westport’s Tivoli Cinemas, one of the metro’s last art houses, closed its doors Friday after 36 years of operation.
The cinema was a haven for small, independent artistic films that weren’t traditionally played in mainstream movie theaters.

Professor Harold Hill romanced Marian the Librarian —while singing and dancing—in the 1962 film of Meredith Willson’s hit Broadway show “The Music Man.” Sitting in the darkened Capitol Theater, an 8-year-old boy was transfixed. He dreamed that one day he, too, would be up on a screen or a stage, making music of his own.
The boy was David Cameron Anderson and, when he was a student at Elyria High School, he gave exuberant performances of Sancho Panza in “Man of La Mancha,” in 1971..
The Grand Theater in Norfolk will be grand again. It just won’t be a theater. Instead of hosting movies or live productions, the Norfolk landmark will be housing people.
Ben and Sarah Conover of Norfolk, who recently bought the 99-year-old property, plan to turn it into apartments that will live up to its lofty name.
In its heyday, Norfolkans flocked to The Grand Theater to watch Hollywood heartthrobs such as Clara Bow and Rudolph Valentino. But when the much grander Granada Theater opened a few..

Seth Rogen is a big fan of “Roma,” the multi-hyphenate star admitted on a muggy Sunday morning at SXSW, but he doesn’t know how to make movies or do comedy for any other format than a packed movie theater.
The theatrical versus streaming debate was top of mind for Rogen, his “Long Shot” leading lady Charlize Theron and their director Jonathan Levine, who sat for Variety and the National Association of Theater Owners’ filmmakers panel at downtown Austin’s WeWork space.
