4 Theatres in a Row on this great Curteich postcard. The street is mentioned in Ripley's Believe It or Not as the only place in the world where one can find four movie theatres in a row. The stunning and detailed Palace was designed by architects Clarence H. Blackall, Clapp and Whittemore.
The Modern was run by Warner Bros. like the Palace. The Strand was later renamed to Astor, and the only building not destroyed. The card was printed in 1941. ©Louis Pearl, Lawrence, Mass.
