Does anyone remember the manager of the Manring Theatre during the years of 1940’s & 1950’s? His name was Arnold Feldman. I would like any info on him. The name of his wife and if he had any children, their names. Sure would appreciate any help!

the Middlesboro paper is ruuning one of those Monster ads you would love to have it you had a printer!At the MANRING THEATRE, LIVE ON STAGE"DRACULA".the Horror movie was “HOUSE OF THE LIVING DEAD” and folks would see,and I ain’t making this up,April 2 1957, THE MATERIALIZATION of JAMES DEAN! after all of this the second feature was “ABBOTT And COSTELLO MEET THE MUMMY”.I pity these kids coming up today with no movie ads,but most of the current crop of films aren’t worth watching.
