oops! 51 years not 61. sorry
hi, don lippard here. Sconce owned the theater but never actually ran the theater. In 1960 I started working there for Jerry Garrison and his wife. learned to be a Projectionist and stayed there thru other operators of the BROWNY. We showed holiday movies to the kids in school in Dec of each year. Loved it-i got out of school for the day to operate the projectors. Still dream about the old place. good dreams! Am still in the theater business after 61 years. It was a wonderful little theater.
Building still there. Address is 25 S. Green ST, Brownsburg, IN, 46112-1239. The house next to it in the IN Memory Collection pic is still there too, it’s 29 S. Green (power poles are in the same spots too). Markings on door of the old Browny are: Schindler Electric, Inc., 858-8215, Heat Treating Equipment. The Now Showing posters in the old pic are actually windows with cement flower boxes integral with their sills. The eye bolts that held up the old marquee are still there up in the front wall. It looks like the inside of the lobby is somewhat still there. There are multiple narrow framed (doors/windows?) along the back wall of the lobby. Back wall of structure is dominated by two newer looking garage doors. Looking in, I could see steel roof supports and insulation. I couldn’t see the floor. Plain drywall separates front office space with back part.
Listed as the Browny in the 1963 IMPA. Sconce Theaters was the operator at that time.
