Hello just found this sight. Great to go back in time.I lived on Stockton Street about two miles away.I did not go to the Lowe’s till about 1958 most of the times I went to my local movie The Rodgers as a kid being 14 cents back in the late 50s the gate was a buck that’s when I would take my dates there we would walk up Broadway both ways and some times late at night never had a problem.Times where simple then.Thank you Joe zizzo

I remember taking my first date to the RKO around 1952 35cents That was big time in those days because the other movie theaters like the rodgers on Broadway was 14 cents That was a time when you could walk with your date late at night and take her back to her home and get a kiss in the vestibule.And her family would ring the buzzer to let you know they new you where there with her.Wow good times.

hello everyone i remember the Rogers as a boy I went there with a bunch of kids from or block every Saturday we all took or lunch and spent the whole day there.from 1946 till we moved in 1954 I lived at stockton street and Lewis ave went to P.S 24 and 148 the price then was 14 cents.My kids and grand children find it hard believe.My mom who is 96 went there with her sisters when she was a little girl when they had silent movies.I also remember the wood chairs and the sticky floor.And the owner wood sell candy and take tickets.And everyone new everyone.Great times.Thanks for the memories .joe zizzo
