The Pimlico closed in 1952. The competition from the Uptown and the new-fangled television was probably too much for the older theatre. During the 50’s through the ‘70s Read’s, the local retail chain drug store, was its replacement. Remember the old drug stores with their luncheonettes? Read’s had about everything, including well-stocked paperback books and comic books sections. Paperbacks and comic books were small change compared to today’s prices.
