Tom Tate did some digging to reveal more information about Photo 646 of Danville, Ind. The movie theater on the far right is showing “The War Lover” starring Steve McQueen. “It premiered in the U.S. in October ’62 and it is likely during that timeframe or shortly after when the photo was taken. What started me looking was the police car in the middle of the photo – a ‘62 Bel Air. It still looks like the retro photo even today! All the buildings pictured appear the same. Even the Royal Theater is still there and still showing movies.”
