GerryS commented about Main Theatre on May 19, 2010 at 8:42 am

I grew up in Mount Healthy and spent many Saturday afternoons at the Main in the mid and late 1950’s. Double feature and a cartoon. Admission was a quarter, and popcorn a dime. Sometimes there was a coupon for a free admission at the bottom of the bag.

Joe Blum said he closed the theater because he could not get the kind of movies he thought kids should be seeing. He was making money, and had offers from buyers who wanted to keep it a theater, but he didn’t want others showing unsavory movies either.

II might disagree with the need for protection, but I sure admire his integrity.
