Goldman Theater Photos Wanted

posted by CarminePetraca on July 26, 2005 at 6:22 am

As assistant business manager of WHYY TV in the 1960’s, Mr. Goldman was on our board and I would travel from our studio at 45th and Market to Mr. Goldman’s office on the second floor above the Goldman Theater in center city Philadelphia. Mr. Goldman’s secretary was behind a glass enclosed doorway and would let me in with a press on an electronic release button.

Mr. Goldman was old at the time, always gracious, and would engage me in coversation as he would sign the checks for WHYY I would bring in to him monthly. I was Impressed with the multitude of photos on his office walls of prominent people, local, state and federal.

I am publishing my autobiography and am searching for photos of the Goldman Theater or Mr. Goldman. Will give proper credit in the book and/or fee for photos.

Hi, a friend of mine recently e-mailed me a photo of the exterior of the Goldman when “Funny Girl” was playing. I am trying to get in touch with him to ask permission to forward if along to you. It’s a 1.8 mg file. I’m not sure how to do it yet, but I will try if he consents. Vince Young

Carmine:

I will research my old boxes, I worked as an usher at the Midtown Theatre back in the late 60’s – early 70’s. I have a picture, of myself, with the manager (Mr. Norman Gordon) and Mr. Goldman standing next to a big Oscar. Oliver! jusr won the Oscar for Best Picture. If I can find, I forward it to you.

Hi, I am the friend of Vince Young who has the picture of the Goldman Theatre during the engagement of “Funny Girl.” I had emailed it to him and have given him my okay to send it to you. If I had your email address I would send it directly. Just let me know!
