I used to collect tickets for the summer matinees at the Lincoln from 1948-50. Mr. Harmon was the manager. My grandfather had the candy store connected to the theater when it was the Roosevelt in the early 40,s.

Loved the Leroy. Saw my first movie there in 1940 with Humphrey Bogart. Always enjoyed looking at the small movie posters on the outside of the theater going up the block. Frank McIlmail, Rochester, MN

So many good memories of the Strand. At 77 I still remember the blue light around the clock to the left of the screen. Had to keep my eye on the time as I did not want to miss the Broad St. Bus. Now live in Minnesota.
