I grew up two blocks away from the National Theater and attended many Saturday matinees in the LATE ‘50’s… $.25 bought me a ticket, coke, and a bag of popcorn…

The National was one of four new Harrisburg neighborhood theaters opened in September, 1914, according to an article in the October 10 issue of Motion Picture News. It was owned by Isaac Marcus, who had been operating the Royal Theatre (later the Star) on North Third Street for a number of years.
