Warren, can you find the FDYBs in stores still? Where can I get copies? I went to my local Public Libary and they don’t even have them.

Here is a photo of the Jembro sign on the front of the old Richmond Theater. There used to be a doorwar under the Jembro sign when it was the movie theater that you could walk out onto the ledge. It was bricked up and sealed when Crazy Eddie first took over.

Hi Warren, I know I did not find the movie yet because I would have stopped looking for it. I am hoping that someday I will rent or buy an obscure horror movie and watch and see the ending (sort of finding it by accident). Alot of people that I have been in contact with already, said they remember seeing this film too, but cannot remember the title.

This was taken over by Regal before it closed, but lost business once the Stadium 16 opened on Forest Avenue.

Thanks Warren. I will have to check out this ProQuest at the library where I live next time I am there. I hope they have it since it is a small library since whenever I look for a regular book there, they always have to order it from a larger branch.

I know that the Chopin never did individual ads from what I found back when I was looking for Newspaper Ads at the library back up north in New York.

I just hope that the New York Times had ads for lower budget Horror movies in their paper like the one I am looking for. Back in New York, I used to look up the New York Post or the Daily News.

Also, the newspaper think at the library is a little harder now that I live in Floirda and not New York anymore. Most Florida libraries don’t have New York Newspapers on Microfilm, only local newspapers.

PKoch, not yet. I hate to have to resort to having to go back to the library and looking up old newspaper ads for a 3 or 4 year time span. I did that for almost a year and barely made a dent in it. I wish there was a way of looking that information up on the Internet.

Bill Huelbig, do you have anymore Movie Newspaper ad clippings?

Actually, I was only using Hammer Films as an example becuase they were one of the companies that did that. It could have been Hammer, it could have been A.I.P., etc… .

Here is some more food for thought on this movie I am trying to find out about that I saw at the Chopin back in the early 1970’s. It may be possible that this movie in question was a Re-Release of an earler film (possibly from the 1960’s) and when it was Re-Released when I saw it in the 1970’s, the Title was Changed or a Different Title used. (such was the case with some of the Hammer Films).

Does anyone remember that new movies used to come out on Wednesday’s instead of Friday’s (occasionally on a Friday). At least in the 1960’s / 1970’s when I used to go to the Chopin.

If I remember correctly, they made this theater a twin after a while before it eventually closed.

Rumor has it that this theater is haunted. Back in the 1950’s / 1960’s (not sure of the date) when this was the Fox Plaza Twin, sone spy or war criminal was stabbed in the back and murdered there during the showing of a movie.

I remember seeing “The Return Of The Living Dead” at the Lane in 1985.

I was born and lived in this neighborhood, but don’t remember this theater. When did the theater close and does anyone have any photos of it?

At one time I was going to the library and looking up old newpaper movie ads on microfilm to see what movies played at the Chopin theater in hopes it would jog my memory.. Althought this proved very interesting and I found some interesting ads, after about almost a year of doing this everyday, it proved much to much work for a three or four year span of researching.

Now that I have moved from New York to Floirda, I am thinking that this might be the only way to figure this Movie out.

Does anyone know if there is a way of looking up on the Internet old newspaper Movie Ads?
