Brook Theater

BY Life's Vintage Newsmagazine

Opening in 1945, the first movie shown at Brook Theater was “Father Was a Fullback,” starring Fred McMurray. Loews, a large movie theater chain, bought the Brook and Delman theatres back in the 70s.

A controversial movie, "The Story of Bob and Sally," was shown here in 1948. It was considered a "sex hygiene" movie about premarital sex, venereal disease, abortion and alcoholism. There were separate showtimes for men and women. 

The building is now occupied by The Brook Restaurant and Bar.
