Here are 2 before and after photos of the Savoy Theatre. I believe the license number on the car is 1947.I saw many movies there in the 40s and 50s as did many Verdunites. It is the same building as I recognised the bricks on the side wall on Willibrord.
Also shown is the photo of the corner of 5th and Wellington where the old Fifth Ave. theatre was situated . The whole building was completely rebuilt. Also shown is the currant building where the Palace theatre was situated.I hope to eventually find pictures of all 4 old theatres of the Verdun, Park, Palace, Fifth Ave and the Savoy, all to be displayed at the SHGV. These theatres had a large impact on our lives as this was mainly before TV.
