titustown commented about Lenox Theatre on Jan 28, 2016 at 9:14 am

I grew up in Norfolk in the 70’s. Me, my brother, and cousin used to go to three different African American movie theaters on Church Street. In the 70’s the movies on Church street that were open for business included Dunbar, Regal, and Lenox. We often stayed at my grandmother’s place in Young Park. Young Park was a neighborhood that was a 3 minute walk from Church street. The first movie I ever saw in any theater anywhere was Three the Hard Way. That was a black exploitation movie. I also was first introduced to Bruce Lee movies and other kung fu movies at these three church street movies.
