The Beacon held many fond memories for me. I was very young when it closed, but I still remember walking to it with friends from my house about nine blocks away. I especially remember seeing a Hercules film there, and it had to be in 1960 or thereabouts, so it was open until then. I remember images from other kids films of that time, that showed at the Beacon but not the names of the films. It was torn down far too early.
