Is there any possibility that the Victor Theatre had some connection with, or was named after the Victor Animatograph Corporation, which was also located in Davenport?

This Floridian attended a performance of THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE last week at the EET. What a beautiful theatre this is, and the performance was awesome. Logan should be very proud of this venue.

Back when the State Theatre was a movie house, there were circuit breakers backstage for an organ. The American Theatre Organ Society may have information on what kind of organ was once located in the theatre.

What a great write up on the Palace, and the photo section is fantastic. I saw all of the Cinerama pictures at the Palace as well as IT’S A MAD, MAD WORLD and 2001. I lament its passing.
