    Looks like the matinee was cancelled. Sad, I wonder what shows played here and also about the people that enjoyed a little entertainment within the walls. Haunting now.

      “The Biscuit Eater” (1940) during the time it was The Fox, still open in the 60s. It was known as the Fox 1950-1969, and MDAH dates the theater at c. 1930.

    Oh my, what a poignant scene. It’s nice to think of when it was open and all the excitement that must have buzzed there.
