favorited this photo
I’ve favorited this particular old Marbro theatre interior shot because of one ‘attachment’ to me: when I saw the movie Ben-Hur here with my mother and sister Constance (1959) I distinctly remember gazing up at the Mezzanine level seating we see clearly there, such a thing fascinating and amazing this 7 y.o. boy (it impressed me as much as the chariot race!)
I was there, working as a cashier/candy counter girl when Ben Hur played at the Marbro. So very good to see this once again. Best giant theater ever as was The Paradise theater on Pulaski.
