Would love to have 300 dpi scans of anything you have. Please let me know if this is possible? Yes, I do know about the Old Newark Site. Thanks. I do remember as a kid in the mid-50s seeing the ads for the Empire and Minsky’s Burlesque in the Newark Star Ledger and the Newark Evening News. Of course, I had no idea what they actually did on stage. It was probably pretty tame compared to what one can see today. The only names I remember are Lili St. Cyr and Tempest Storm (my favorite stage name of all time). Ron
Thanks to Bob Furmanek, Tommy R., Ron Newman and Ian McIver for their comments. I’ve checked out all your suggestions. Always happy to hear from other folks about my project. Sure wish we could find some moving pictures of these Newark theaters. Ron
Will you send them by e-mail, or do you want to loan me the slides to scan? Let me know, and I’ll give you appropriate addresses either way. Thanks for being willing to help.
Are these programs available in the State of California? I’m working on buying a San Francisco theater, and we’re a non-profit, looking for financial help. Please help plus us in, if you will. Thanks. Ron Merk, Executive Director, The Metro Theater Center Foundation
Thanks for your note, Bob. By any chance did you take any photos of the Tivoli, even in this terrible state? If so, I’d love to see them.
