I lived ½ block away on 203rd Street from 1943 to 1970. This was definitely our neighborhood theater. I saw “The Attack of the Crab Monsters” and one called (I think) “The Americano” and I fell madly in love with Glenn Ford. (JKane – my last name at the time was Kane.) It became the AME church while we still lived there. We kids fondly called it “the Itch”.
That suicide-committing patron was my grandmother (the gun owner was my dad). I was told that she’d shot herself in the Loge. Tinseltoes, what is the source of your information?
