Can anyone tell me what happened to the Sacramental Registers when Our Lady of Lourdes Church burned?
Yes, I have, thank you.
Are you the same Peter Koch who is the local contact for the Grover Cleveland High School Open House being held Sept. 18?
I just now received an e-mail with the name of Peter Koch & a tel. #.
I used to work there, recently retired, and am trying to help spread the word.
Thank you, Peter K., for the information about the DeKalb/Casino Theater.
I saw films of an entirely different ilk at the Parthenon. They used to run some opera films on a very limited schedule, perhaps only one or two showings, before the film moved on to another theater. I know I saw “Tosca” there, and I think “Aida.”
Was this the only location of the Colonial Theater? I found a distant relative in the 1918 WW I Draft Registration: Brooklyn, NY, 13 Sep, Division 71, #2334/A 861, 31-9-71-C, Alonzo Addison Turner, Address: 1152 DeKalb, Bklyn, Kings, NY;Asst. Manager, Colonial Theater, 1158 DeKalb Ave, Bklyn, Kings, NY. [between Broadway & Bushwick Ave.]
He is also listed as a theater manager in the 1920 (living 1152 Dekalb) & 1930 (living 581 Decatur) Kings Co. Census. Name of theater not in census.
