To Brian Krefft, You made notice of the Tower theater, a sister of The Congress and The Harding. Where was The Tower located?

I saw the movie “Sink the Bismark” at the Tiffin. I remember how “cool” the seats were because they moved or slid foward and back.

After the Harding Theater closed in the sixties, the front of the theater was torn down and rebuilt. When the work was done, it opened as a Walgreens Drug store. When Walgreens closed the store, it was shuttered for a few years. It is now a Peal Vision Store. It stands at the intersection of Spaulding & Milwaukee on the Southwest corner. If you look closely from the intersection towards the middle to the rear of the building, you’ll see the old Harding Theater!As a child, I went to this theater often. The inside of the theater made you feel like you were in one of the “Downtown Theaters”. It was beutifull inside!
