This site is a work in progress and a labor of love.
We are trying to compile as much information on my grandfather’s theatres as possible. My time was spent in the Forty Fort Theatre and Luzerne Theatre. So naturally, we have the most information on those two movie houses. My dad also ran the Dallas Drive-In Theatre for five years, so there is a fair amount of material there as well. The Wyoming Theatre also played a major role in history of the Alexander/Marinos cinemas. I have been in touch with family members connected to Wyoming to help add to that page.
Obtaining historical accounts or memorabilia on the other theatres presents a much greater challenge. Almost all of the family members who recall or have any artifacts connected to those cinemas have passed away. But, with the help of a few passionate friends and family members, and possibly “you,” we may just be able to fill in the gaps.
We’d love to hear your comments and questions.
