I so remember this theater from the late 1960s. My father used to take me there. This is where I was introduced to the Marx Brothers and WC Fields. Great days. I specifically recall there was a beautiful hand cranked move camera on a tripod by the candy stand. I was intrigued with it as a child. What a great theater….

I remember it well. I worked there as an usher/doorman/student assistant manager from December 21, 1971 to June 1975. Some of my co-workers are my friends to this very day.

The theater sat 972 people. It had an orchestra and loge. The biggest complaint people had about the theater was that the movies stayed there for so long. For example, Nicholas and Alexandra (a roadshow) played at the theater from February 2, 1972 until June of that year.

I will post photos in the near future.
