I’ve sent a fax to “a Beth Dunlop” in Miami, but no word as yet. The phone number went to a fax ring so I had to send word to her via the fax machine.

I was researching a photo postcard that my mom wants to list on ebay & found this site. Maybe you guys (& gals) would enjoy to see the photo??

The movie showing was “The Country Doctor” and you can see Breakers in the distance.

If somebody right clicks & saves the photo, maybe you can add it to the site later…whatever you decide. Enjoy.

I just clicked on the name Joseph Urban and see that he also built 2 other large capacity theatres in NYC, but both of them have been demolished according to CT.

January 9th, 1927 grand opening ad has been posted here. Admission was $1.50-$2.00 ($18-$25) in today’s money. Palm Beach was an really expensive town at the time.

Wish the Town of Palm Beach had preserved this historical theatre!
