Edison Theater, 1951

Lamar Sanders writes: I went to its opening in the 1950s. It was an Esther Williams swimming movie, and it was packed and had chairs in the aisles. The theater across the street charged 11 cents, and this one, built by Bill Israel, went up to 15 cents. Then you needed a nickel for a piece of candy and another nickel for a coke.
