DavidZornig commented about Loew's State Theatre on Jun 13, 2018 at 9:41 am

1942 photo added. GONE WITH THE RAIN – A crowd gathers in front of the Loew’s State Theatre in Houston on a rainy day in February, 1942 to see GONE WITH THE WIND.

The film, which was originally premiered on December 15, 1939, was the top grossing film of thye year and won eight Academy Awards. In 1942, the producer, Davis O. Selznick liquidated his company for tax reasons, and sold his share in Gone with the Wind to his business partner, John Whitney, for $500,000. In turn, Whitney sold it on to MGM for $2.8 million, so that the studio owned the film outright. MGM immediately re-released the film.“ Photo credit: Dolph Briscoe Center for American History.

You are correct. I blew it up and on the Trans Lux marquee it reads “Planes Crash 57 Perish” which was Civil Air Transport Flight 106 on June 20, 1964 & “Kennedy Tours Poland”, which was RFK’s trip in June 1964. There is also a “NY World’s Fair 64” license plate on the convertible at the curb.

I happened to run across this 2015 re-cap of the 1930 film “The Widow From Chicago”. At the bottom there is a print ad for the film at the Murphy Theatre from the November 25, 1930 Wilmington Daily News-Journal.
