1939: THE STACY THEATER
It certainly wasn't a "first run" theater, but they always seemed to book some of the best movies that appealed to the masses. I think I attended the Stacy maybe 2 or 3 times. When I was a boy, the nearby Gaiety and Greenwood were the theaters of our neighborhood, with an occasional walk to the RKO Broad or the Bijou (By the way, when that latter theater was named, it was supposed to have been referred to as the "BEE-ZHOO," but all my contemporaries called it the "BY-JOE;" remember?

I CAN'T HONESTLY RECALL WHETHER THERE WAS A BALCONY OR NOT, RAY. I'M SURE THERE WILL BE A RESPONSE AT SOME POINT.
