As a child we spent many Saturday afternoons at this theatre as well as the Keystone. It was the best place to cool off in the summer, it was air conditioned.

This was the theatre that we went as kids. When they were tearing it down, my sister and I were walking home from school and there was a worker named Johnny from the Cleveland Wrecking Co. who let us walk the theatre and take what we wanted. I took the old dial up phone that was in one of the offices. I was only 12 at the time. I took two placards that said 10 cents and a penny tax to get in. What I didn’t know until I looked on this site that on opening day of this theatre my grandmother performed there. She is billed as “Cotter & Boulden”. What a wonderful surprise. My grandmother Ada Boulden played the banjo and her second husband played the piano. I never knew her. I still have the telephone. It sits on my bookcase.
