The above links are broken. Here is the updated link.

I’m a school teacher in the area and only became aware of the theater’s significance as it was being demolished. Since then, I’ve watched Marty several times and always ask old-timers about the theater whenever possible. I posted some video and pics at the links above.

I was amazed that no one, seemingly, objected to the building’s demise. Very few of the area’s current residents are aware of what once was the RKO Chester.
