These photos were provided to us through the private collection of the Hurt family, courtesy of Bob and Martha Ballard. They are scans of original photos depicting the Millwald Theatre circa 1939. Movies that were showing at the time include Nick Carter - Master Detective, The Gorilla, Chicken Wagon Family, The Real Glory, and what we believe is likely the original run of The Wizard of Oz!
