I have to take issue with Jim Harmon, who posted the general info about the American Theater. It did in fact run Saturday afternoon matinees. I went to several there as a child in Mt. Carmel in the 1950’s. When cinemascope movies began to be shown, it was decided that it would be too expensive to widen the screen at the American, so the Uptown Theater screen was widened, and the American was closed.
