DavidZornig commented about North Station Cinema I on Jul 20, 2017 at 4:24 pm

1974 photo added courtesy of the Dirty Old Boston Facebook page. Films on the marquee were released in 1969 & `70, though neither were pornography films. So it appears North Station Cinema 1 was also trying to be a revival house.

Thanks for sharing your memories Fred. I have never been to the Lans. I only shared the photos and descriptions as I found them from the various sources I credited.

DavidZornig commented about Bryn Mawr Theatre on Jul 7, 2017 at 11:41 am

I was finally able to get a halfway decent shot of the Bryn Mawr ghost signs on the South & East elevations of the building from the train. The East elevation is more legible, as there is a reflection of the train windows on the other one. I never noticed the one on the East elevation before, but it came out better than my intended one. Photo in the Photo’s section.
