One of the more extraordinary things one can do with the computer is to merge two items out of time; in this case, 1937. The above exquisite photo of Trenton's Stacy Theater as it looked in 1937 when it was featuring one of those great old Dick Powell movies, "On the Avenue." A bit of extra research reveals that "Avenue" was released in 1937, ergo, the photo of the Stacy Theater as it looked back then. Out in the boondocks, we had the Gaiety theater on South Olden Avenue, along with its twin the Centre, these two could never feature "First Run" motion pictures; usually it was "Last Run." Downtown Trenton had its share of movie theaters that took the back seat to the more popular RKO Trent, Capitol, Orpheum (Later the Mayfair), the Lincoln. As I recall, the State, Stacy, Garden, and Palace theaters were among the theaters who got the movies after they were distributed to the first run theaters.
