Kenny commented about Armitage Theatre on Nov 8, 2004 at 1:57 pm

The Armitage may have closed around 1950, but reopened in the early 50’s.I remember going there for the Saturday matinees. I also remember that the owners name was Bob. On Saturdays he would come on stage and have a contest for the kids which consisted of stars attached to a large board. Ticket sutb numbers were called and if you held that number you had a chance to pick a star for a prize which was listed under it. Also, if you had a birthday you were also entitled to a prize. That’s all I remember,except that one of the scariest movies I saw there was “The Creature From The Black Lagoon”
