The Golden Age

For the next few decades the Grand enjoyed major success under the management of Mr. Kemp. Even into the early 70s he retained the color cartoons, the kid’s shows and the short subjects abandoned by the other theatres. The curtain still opened and closed for each performance and the neon tubing glowed on. In 1975, Wally Kemp retired and the Grand’s services declined in his absence.
