In the previous picture, there are two small homes directly across the street (Vermont Ave) just off the right side of the picture. A life long friend grew up there before moving to Colorado in the 60’s. His dad was born in one of those houses and still lives in the other one which he built in the 40’s. The interesting thing is that my friend’s Mom and Dad STILL live there. She’s 89 and he’s 97… born in 1910, the same year the theatre was built!

Thanks for the history. But when you talk about the South Hampton/Roxy are you still talking about the Virginia?

Isn’t 1910 a little early? Fred Wehrenberg opened his first theatre in an empty storefront next to his saloon/grocery in 1906.
