My great grandpa Tony Domino and great great uncle Ted Ingrassia built and opened the theater on Saturday, February 4, 1928. My grandma Maryjo Domino Pritz just turned 88 this year and reminisces on her time living above the theater as a little girl with her parents (Tony & Lucy Domino – my great grandparents) and going out on the marquee looking up at the stars. Sadly the Great Depression hit and they lost the theater. The first Italian grocery store in Rockford, Il was next store to the theater, Ingrassia grocery store which my great great grandpa Salvatore Ingrassia owned and the tile is still present to this day. The only item my grandma was able to take with was her doll house doll and a suramic deer. Do you happen to have the original ad of this? We’d love to make a copy to keep in my family which still resides in Rockford, IL.
