No one has favorited this photo yet
This photo was probably taken in 1969. The film advertised on the Norva theatre marquee is “The Chairman”, starring Gregory Peck, which was released that year.
Across the street is “Hofheimer’s”, a shoe store at 325 Granby St. in Norfolk. This building was the location of the former Victoria Theatre, built in 1911 as a vaudeville/movie theatre. By 1916 it was renamed the Strand and operated as a full time movie theatre. As of 2017, the same building that was once the Victoria Theatre is still standing.
