I spent many Friday nights at the Mary Lou (or Lue?)in the WW2 years, around 12 years old — pretty sure I saw the Iron Claw serial, and some others. I would walk there from my house on 62nd and Swope Parkway. The crowd was people my age, and popcorn was a big deal — I think we threw it around. And we looked for girls. I would love to see a picture of it!!!

It was also renamed to the Comet Theatre, I think in the late 1940’s or early 50’s. After it closed, it was used as a union hall. It was a neighborhood theatre for me, and I spent many Friday nights there. I remember the child ticket price was 14 cents. The cashier had a big bowl of pennies to make change with.

A car wash occupies the site today. Once there was a lounge here on this site which was owned by former Kansas City Chief player Otis Taylor back in the early 70’s.
