    Bianca P.’s story in today’s Flyer says the Lamar Theater was on Crump. I lived on Holman as a toddler (WWII) and the Lamar was at Lamar and Kyle St. I was told that I was taken there to see Disney’s “Bambi” but began to cry and we left.
    Anyway, that theater sign in her article is/was on Lamar Ave. at Kyle.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us at the Lamar Theater although it’s a shame you missed out on the Bambi theater experience. The Lamar Theater we’re talking about is at Kyle and Lamar as you say… just a slight discrepancy in the article as to the location. Thanks for writing to clarify!
