I need some help. I remember the Family Theatre. But was their two theatres across the street from it? What were the names of the theatres back in the 50s

Again, this was well before my time in the W-B area, but I do know that the Family was in the 300 block S. Main, not 100. It was in what was originally the auditorium of the GAR Hall, which was demolished in the 1960’s along with other buildings to make way for the present W-B Post Office. I think it was probably always a 2nd-run house.
