CINEMAS of the World



The Senate Theater, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA. 
Now demolished.
During the studio era the Senate showed the releases of Universal International, RKO, and other smaller studios. It was the smallest of the downtown theaters, located on Market Square in Pennsylvania's capitol city.
This is a photo of the mysterious ELECTRIC EYE which automatically opened the beautiful mirrored doors through which one passed into a small vestibule with posters of coming attractions and thence to a modest lobby at the rear of the theater.
Appropriately, due to the futuristic ELECTRIC EYE, this was where I first saw  
THIS ISLAND EARTH.
