87 years deserves a comment.Lakewood hung around a lot longer than others that lasted less than a few years.Think of All the Movies,The stories from Employees.Bye. Thanks Cwalczak.

This the theater where I saw “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” for the first time, and I have never lost my fondness for the luminescent Audrey Hepburn after seeing that delightful film.

Very useful analyze, I’ve made some bets on them this season! Thanks for helping me too see the situation objective. And hey, don’t be sad for the results, it could be worse anytime!
