Unruly crowds of young people were intimidating and bullying other patrons initially. But, the final “nail in the coffin” was when a patron was killed by a steel ball bearing thrown from the balcony that hit a patron close to the front row in the back of the head thus killing them. The Park Theatre closed down after this incident and never reopened. The sad end to a very nice neighborhood theatre due to changing patron patterns giving way to a dangerous and finally deadly attack.

Was anyone ever arrested and charged with the death of the patron who hit and killed by the steel ball bearing throw at them?
