Sometime c. 1939-1940 my uncle, Roy Norman, managed the Avon theater. He also worked simultaneously for the Bison and another – my mom always called them the ABC theaters, and I thought the 3rd one was the Criterion. Avon, Bison and Criterion. Was the Ritz formerly the Criterion or do I have the facts screwy? Does anyone know? They were all within two blocks walking distance of the family home (200 block of N Philadelphia – now a church.)
