Just added two pictures of the projection booth. The projector were named “Betsey” & “Matilda”.

The Grant opened in 1939. It was bullt by The Pazelli and Aluni families. The Crouse family, who at the time the Grant opened, operated the Regent and State Theatres, was brought in as managers. I worked here as a relief projectionist from 1952 until 1957. The theatre went to a weekend operation around 1958 and closed around 1960. The original projection equipment ended up in the Heights Theatre in Columbia Heights, Mn. The Grant was reopened for a short time around 1965 by a group of businessmen from Virginia, Mn. I came back to Eveleth for a short time to assist in the reopening.
