The Essex Theatre was a bargain cinema, running older movies for a buck. Not sure when this theatre closed. It now houses a church.

This was a Wometco house in the sixties and seventies.

My mother and I laughed ourselves silly during a screening of “When Comedy Was King” -a look back at the really funniest films produced.

The Essex closed in 1977 and was already operating by 1949.

From 1978-1980 the Essex became the Atlantic. It became the Essex once again when it was twinned in 1981. It was tripled in 1983.

The opening sentence of the introduction needs to be edited. I would suggest: “The Essex Theater was a bargain cinema, running older movies for a buck.”
