If you could post it (or provide some reference for it), I would very much like to see that article – I recall seeing “The Pink Panther Strikes Again” at the Allen Center – and that came out in 1976. Saw other movies there until probably 1979…by that time had a car and didn’t have to depend on the bus to get to the movies.
Actually the Delman was renamed Maceba. I attended some performances there but Maceba lasted a very short time.
The Fulton became a bowling alley and in the 1960s the Stardust Ballroom. In 1983 it returned to use as a theater (Cine Colonial) that showed movies from Mexico – catering to the largely Hispanic neighborhood in which it was located – and when Clemente Martinez Elementary School was built in the late 1980s the theater was demolished to form part of the schoolyard.
The theater and the entire block was demolished – and replaced with a large luxury home completely out of place in my working-class neighborhood.
