This is part of an article in the Syracuse Post-Standard, dated 1/13/50:

MOUNT VERNON.â€"A 12-year-old girl missing from her Yonkers home for a week was found unharmed yesterday in the Biltmore theater here. Police said the girl, Josephine Leach, had run away from home after a quarrel with her mother, although fear had been expressed earlier that she might have been abducted.

Detectives came upon the girl after searching all theaters in a large area of Mount Vernon, a New York suburb, on a tip that she had been seen in another movie house some distance away. Only a few hours before, the girl’s trail was picked up when a minister and his wife found she had been in their apartment, in a mixed white and colored section of Mount Vernon, while they were absent earlier in the day.

The photo above was taken via a historical book by Dr. Larry Spruill. MVNU’s President Joseph Pombo has donated this photo of this beautiful theater. This way we can know how things once looked. It also makes this theater google searchable for others looking to see where it once stood and what it looked like.
