I just found this article (with great pictures) on cnn.com, "The Romance of Retro Cinemas":

We had a Silver Moon in my hometown too, although it's been gone for many years. Now it's a produce market/antiques and a Golds gym. So many beautiful places are gone...in just one lifetime.

I know.. When I was growing up, everything everywhere was being built for the first time. Massive suburban expansion projects. We couldn't walk or drive anywhere without seeing large tracts of land being plowed under and over by dozens of Caterpillar tractors and Mack dump trucks (I was fascinated by the big, yellow tractors and mountains of red dirt). Now, nearly all of those have been completely torn down or rebuilt. It's sad to see the ones which have remained, deserted for decades, being reclaimed slowly by Mother Nature - fields of deteriorated asphalt and concrete smothered in weeds.
 
Ah well.. [sniff!]

Well as one can clearly see back in 1940 men were not treated equally.    Yea, there is ladies night,  but no night for men!

 

:wacko:

 

I was stunned by the advance publicity in use back in 1940, since both titles on the marquee are from 1958!

It struck me as unusual that a WWII film would be playing before we entered the war.
