Family Theater, Des Moines, IA in 1923

Ate a ton of popcorn at the Family Theatre. It was basic, no balcony and always ran westerns, Laurel & Hardy, Disney and Lantz cartoons, and serials. Think Rogers, Autry and I saved the west there. Basic flat V-shaped sign with no vertical sign. It was on the east side of the alley that seperated it fron the Casino Theatre.

In Bill Bryson’s paperback book “The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid” is a photo of the Family Theater on page 2. I can’t read all the marquee but it says “DOPE INFERNO”, “SHAME”, “HORROR” and “DESPAIR”. I can’t read the title of the movie. Does anyone know what the title might be? Thanks, JH.
