I worked at the RKO Keith’s theater from about 1945 thru about 1947. Also
worked at Loews off and on. In those days, both theaters posted “barkers"
from time to time. I enjoyed barking. Many times we had crowds in-line waiting to get in for the next movie.
When Guy Lombardo came to Keiths, we had hugh crowds waiting to get in during weekday late afternoon shows. When Louis Prima played few showed up
and he got bad reviews.
