    Yep, I remember it well. Used to be 50¢, as I recall.

    Emily, this is to me your best, most fascinating post ever. I had somehow never heard of the Theatre, so I am blown away by these photos and information — but your insightful and thoughtful commentary really puts it over the top. Many, many kudos!

    Great stuff and (as has already been noted), a wonderfully written appreciation of Grand Central.

    Which makes me want to kick myself for even mentioning a pet peeve of mine: the spelling of “theater”. While many places have “Theatre” as part of their name (e.g. Grand Central Theatre), the preferred U.S. spelling for the kind of place it is is “theater”. So Grand Central Theatre was an intimate theater, not an intimate “theatre”.

    Ok, now I’ll kick myself.

    Thanks for a great post.

    Emily, thanks for a wonderful reminiscence. While in college during the fifties, I would purposely get to GCT at least an hour early for my weekend “Harlem Line” ride home just so I could enjoy the Theatre’s latest.

    Thank you for the fascinating history regarding Grand Central Station. I visited there only once on a high school trip to NYC (from Ohio) I even lived in NYC for a year 1969 but unfortunately I took a bus to work everyday and never a train.
    Grand Central was beautiful and has such a history. I’ve been a Texan now for over forty years.
