skeptic49 commented about Lenox Theatre on Nov 25, 2012 at 9:46 am

I posted the photo. Our family lived a block away from the Lenox when I was a child. My mother was a part time cashier at the theater in the early 1950s. The theater was owned by the Spears family. The elder Mr. Spears died in about the late 50s and his son Ed Spears ran the house until he sold it. A man named “Sig” worked as a manager I believe. A family friend, Kay McGucken also worked at the theater. I remember many memorable films that I saw there as a child including Disney’s “Song of the South,” “Old Yeller,” and “The Absent-Minded Professor.” There was a nickel soda machine in the lobby.
