Help sought to identify two open air theatres
Greetings CT visitors,
I am trying to identify the whereabouts of the US open air theatre that is visible in the three images online
If anyone may be able to pass on any hints, I would be most appreciative. A search for ‘open air theatres’ on CT doesn’t give many leads – acknowledging of course that the pictured theatre is not obviously an open air cinema.
Background: my grandmother and her sister are shown in the picture as part of a troupe called The Six Rockets that toured the US in the 20’s and early 30s (one can see their name on the plaque to the left of the stage on the upper left photo). At various times they were an RKO as well as Loew’s Act.
Would it be reasonable to assume open air theatres like this would have been more typically found in California and North/South Carolina, as opposed to the north east or north west coast?
Many thanks in advance for any possible assistance. I am writing a book on my grandmother’s life and am trying to identify the points across the US she reached as an acrobat.
