I worked here as an usher in the mid 60’s for 80 cents an hour when it was owned by Arthur Ent. and managed by Mr. Hollis Schurmeyer. Years later I was relief mgr. for Schurmeyer during his vacations. I also seem to recall a Harlan (Waddy) Wadsack & a Mary Ann O'Brian who also worked many, many years there and seemed like parts of the furniture. The Avalon, during that period of the 60’s, was the real “coming of age” spot for hundreds of teens. When Arthur Ent. sold the Avalon is when the true end, began.
