Dear Editor: Thank you for printing my article pertaining to the Strand Theater. I have received an unusually large number of favorable comments regarding the letter. All were from people over 50 who said it brought back childhood memories and reminded them how things were around the square at that time.
Two women told me they read the letter to their husbands who had dementia. They told me their eyes lighted up and they smiled while they read it. The sad part is that they said they were unable to retain it.
Many people asked me why I left the other movies out. Also many people told me that Stewart Murray called out Bingo numbers at the Hub Drive-in. This was after I went in the Army. He was more popular than I thought.
See the letter here.
Harry L. Long
