My brother, sisters and I grew up on Stoepel near Grove st. We saw many movies at the Varsity theatre. This was the 60's and seeing Batman on the big screen in 1966 really stands out in my memory. Right around 1970, the Stoepel gang were still going to the Varsity, but not for movies. It was vacant by then and we sat in the seats and talked about the movies we had seen. 13 yrs old and crying for the old Varsity. Our father grew up in the same house in the 1930's and 40's and he had fond memories of the Varsity.
