I’m very saddened to learn about this theatre and how it is being used in 2012. I’m about to read the book by David Margolick, Elizabeth and Hazel. Perhaps all of us should read it and add To Kill A Mockingbird to that list of civil rights books.

I agree with Patsy. What a disgusting use of a fine old theatre.

Thanks Chuck for the good news follow-up information. Do hope and pray there aren’t any problems with the change of ownership!
