That’s right, the family is still based in CA.
I would definitely like any further information you may have, and any photos of the “18th. st.” then & now.
Is the building still standing?
As things progress I’m hoping to trace the histories of both theaters and how they relate to the development of American entertainment.
(I’ll email you directly when I’m a bit more organized)
I’m in Brooklyn to research the history of this theater My great grandfather Owned it when it was a Vaudeville theater and for a while as a movie theater. I have his archives and a book of acts from the year 1924-1925 including prices descriptions and his personal notes on the acts, plus 3 scrapbooks of newspaper reviews, and photos, etc…
He also owned a theater in Eerie Penn. and I’m hoping to put together a documentary on the transition to film and (hopefuly) some general history on the subject.
Any suggestions on where to find public records, etc… would be greatly appreciated.
