My aunt tells me that her mother, who recently died at the age of 97, attended this theater on the south side of Scranton as a young girl. It was in the Italian section of town and many of those attending the silent films at this house were recent immigrants. They could not read the English captions, so their children would often read them out loud during the film. It was nicknamed by many “The Garlic House.”

This is now the Heart and Soul audio store. A great place for a neighborhood theatre – everything else is a nice quiet residential street – this theatre is long, low and small – looks like an early Nickelodeon. Would’t it be great to live right down the street from it and be wble to walk right to the movies?
