A Wurlitzer organ, opus 1753, was deliverd to “3RD AVE & BELLEVUE TH” on 10/11/1927. Must have been for this theatre.

I remember riding by in the sixties and the marquee said “McCales Navy Joins The Airforce” What year was that? Yes, Sam Frank had the Rivoli, The Circus Drive-in, The Colonial in Egg Harbor City, and the three Long beach Island theatres. I think he had the Penn in Pennsville too. There was once a theatre in Mayslanding, NJ called the Ritz? My Father told me that he watched Tom Mix films there when he was a kid. I believe that this was one of Sam Frank’s first theatres. I worked for “THE FRANKS” at the Greenwood in Trenton, NJ in 1970 I showed “Five Easy Pieces”.
