Keep ‘em coming, “ken mc.” Lo Mem has a nerve criticizing your efforts. He contributes nothing but material that he poaches from others!

Your question was followed by a negative comment on the quality of the scan. “Poaching” is what you do, many times a day from the look of it. You enter people’s scrapbooks on the internet, and then publish links to some of the contents at Cinema Treasures. It might not be “illegal,” but it is certainly UNETHICAL. Before publishing those links, you should first contact the scrapbook owner and obtain their permission. How do you know that they want to be represented at Cinema Treasures? Maybe they have other intentions.

Why don’t you take some time out to learn how to write correctly? It’s “You’re still off topic,” NOT “Your still off topic.”

Nonsense! The closing quotation mark usually comes after the period, not before it.
Correct usage: Ken said “I love Barbie."
Incorrect usage: Ken said "I love Barbie”.
An exception would be in a sentence ending with a quotation within a quotation, but I’ll save that for the next lesson.

Then you should have written “…Your still off topic!”, otherwise you were paraphrasing and not quoting at all.

The description of this theatre fails to mention that it was built to service the Afro-Caribbean community of Coconut Grove and often ran stage shows along with the films. It operated from the mid-fifties through to the late seventies playing mostly late run double features.

According to The Miami Herald movie timeclock there was another Ace somewhere in Homestead from 1966-1973.
