Dalelarsen commented about Rockne Theatre on Nov 8, 2004 at 7:34 pm

Actually, the Rockne was at the corner of Monitor and Division as I lived in the 1000 block of Monitor. Saw many movies there….only, occasionally was the balcony open (in the 50’s). Later, my wife and I lived in the 1000 block of Mayfield and we would lie in bed and say R – O – C – K – N – E …..Rockne!!!! If you timed it just right, when the marquee would flash the entire name, ROCKNE, our bedroom would light up greenish from the marquee. One other item of interest.. My aunt, Hellen Larsen, won a prize for re-naming the theatre to Rockne in a contest. Lots of great memories from those old age. Would be fun to hear from others from that era if they have time.
