DavidZornig commented about Sunrise Drive-In on Jan 22, 2019 at 8:08 pm

Just added another 8/16/38 photo front & back, which states that the Sunrise was “New York State’s first open air drive-in theater”. Something that should likely be added to the Overview.

This confirms that the concert events were reserved seating.

I’m sure it was reserved seating, as I just posted a 1981 Zappa ticket and the source confirmed in his story that he was in the 1st row seat that the ticket shows.

Just found out that Clubland was a concept in Detroit as well. It was “Clubland at the State Theatre”, 2115 Woodward Avenue. The image used the exact same candy cane font as Clubland at the Vic

DavidZornig commented about Majestic Theatre on Jan 15, 2019 at 3:31 pm

Via the Grand Prairie Historical Society Facebook page. (caption to photo added)

I remember getting into the movie theatre in the “twelve and under” category for 75 cents. I am guessing that those “75 cents days” are over. Not having grown up in Stuttgart, I was never in the Majestic Theatre, but I imagine this photo will bring back some memories for a lot of people. Apparently, the theatre was mostly demolished sometime in the 80s. Parts of the old Majestic were salvaged for other buildings around Stuttgart. It was located on the south side of 4th Street, west of Main. I am told by a highly reliable source that the marquee in this photo is advertising the movie, “Man Who Never Was,” starring Clifton Webb, approximating the date of this photo as 1956. Photo Credit is given to the Museum of the Arkansas Grand Prairie. The photo is also found in Glenn Mosenthin’s book, “Images of America: Stuttgart.” http://www.grandprairiemuseum.org/
