The Hastings 4 has underwent some changes over the years, as you can see from the photo from the 1940's when it was known as the Strand. Interesting that the marquee has the display panel attached underneath the facade, that would seem to limit the visibility of what was showing to only the pedestrians on the sidewalk. In case you were wondering, the film showing at the time this old photo was taken was "Maryland" with Walter Brennan, released in 1940.
