The marquee of the Wilby Theatre is seen for a brief moment in “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter”, which was filmed in 1968 in Selma, Alabama.
I remember the Beekman very well. What a wonderful theatre. I went there to see most of the Ingmar Bergman movies. The first was Wild Strawberries. I, and a few others, had arrived late to attend a concert at Lewisohn Stadium, and it had started raining. So we went to the Beekman instead. On other occasions, I saw Through a Glass Darkly and Winter Light – two of the Bergman classics.
