      Saul & Roland?? I have so many shots of the old Rustic Theater when it was
      an open air Theater? and the later metal summer theater I do have a few
      shots of a rustic looking interior of a theater it seems to be enclosed??
      did they put a roof over the old theater for the patrons in the later years
      before the fire in 55
