I lived on Vega Avenue at West 30 Street. My parents and I walked to the Marvel Theater every Monday evening to watch a movie. They lived there from 1938 (when they got married) to 1948, when we moved. We watched a lot of Humphrey Bogart/George Raft gangster movies, but my favorite movies were westerns with Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.
We moved to Livonia, Michigan in 1973. I took our children to the Mai Kai many times. I loved watching movies on the big screen, just as I did while growing up in Cleveland, Ohio. After the theater was remodeled for live stage shows, I saw Bobby Vinton in concert. I also had front row tickets to see Paul Anka but the theater closed and the concert was canceled.
