The Hart was the largest W-B theater that was not downtown, being in the “Rolling Mill Hill” section. It opened in 1938 and had only a 30-year life. I never saw it except in a great state of deterioration, as it sat empty for nearly 25 years before it was demolished for a church parking lot. It was named for a 1920’s mayor of W-B who also gained some fame as an actor.

It was actually a dress factory until 1987 or 1998. Stanley Mfg. owned by Stanley Silverman later his wife Alice. My mother worked there my entire childhood and young adult life
