Those are cool photos but why do you post links 2 minutes apart. You do it most of the time and waste space. Put them all in one message. Thanx.

The reason is I am surfing the net while I work. Sometimes I don’t see the other picture until a few minutes later. I will try to consolidate in the future.

I was looking at the current street view of where this theater was and compared it with the 1950’s photos posted by ken mc back in 06. There are three kids on the little balcony above the marquee in the 1950’s picture. That balcony is still there. It looks like the facade remained and was incorporated into a new building. Could be wrong, but if it is, may there be some of the lobby, greatly altered, at least still there. The address on the current building is 22.
