  1. Yes, “The Pic”, as we used to call it. Saw a lot of movies there, with a newsreel and a dozen cartoons tossed in for a quarter or fifty cents or whatever it was. Went to the “Harper” a lot too, and to the “Hyde Park” theater with it’s daring foreign films when we got into our teens.
    When I went to Kozminski, we went to the Frolic on 55th Street; a real hole in the wall compared to the elegance of “The Pic!”

  2. We lived on Hyde Park Blvd. in 1946/47. I remember going to the Picadilly with my Mother to see Disney’s The Song Of The South and The Bells Of St. Mary’s with Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman.

  3. My mother took me to the Picadilly on many a Saturday afternoon in the mid-50s…some of my fondest memories.
