The May 28, 1949, issue of Boxoffice had a photo of the Melody and Arco Theatres from the opening night of the Melody.

Went to the Arco several times in ‘64-'64.. Saw West Side Story.. As stated above, the seating was staggered. On the “short end” of some rows they had constructed a “farmboy chair” (our name for them), these were 1 ½ width seats.. you could see where two seat backs had been joined to make the seat.

Can’t remember anything special.. good popcorn.. snuck our friends in the exit doors..
