Two former Pittsburgh movie theaters

I remember the Strand movie theater in Pittsburgh – see the third picture in the Instagram post below. I saw The Godfather and several American Film Theatre movies there. I went to the University of Pittsburgh from 1971-1975. It’s right up the street from the theater.

I also remember the Kings Court theater further up Forbes Avenue even closer to Pitt. A friend sent me a picture a few years ago – it was a T- Mobile cell phone store then.
