Loved both of those theatres...such a shame they couldn't keep them going. Been well over 20 years now that they've been closed too, time flies

It's too bad that the seller didn't provide larger images. It would be nice to be able to read everything on the Fox marquee. Maybe Jimi Hendrix is listed on it.

Perhaps someone here will buy it and scan it large for our database.
