Seems like the Theatre never change playing movie such as “SUDDENLY A WOMAN”.It play “ROSEMARY’S BABY” first run.Maybe the Crowd for “MARY” was a moviegoing crowd and not a fighting one,touraine32.

I used to pay 25 cents to see five movies at the Linden. The crowd was always very rowdy. Often, in the winter, drunks from the El Ropo Tavern (at Beechwood and Charlevois — where the Shell Service Station stands today) would pay their 25 cents to enter the Linden and stay warm. Once, during a Three Stooges marathon, I asked the girls sitting on the row in front of us to shut up so that I could hear the movie, and one of them turned around and punched me in the face, knocking out one of my front teeth. Such fond memories!
