Morning Star, October 5, 2014, pg. 12

The Bohm Theatre has certainly undergone a massive make-over. "Incredible" is the word that comes to my mind. The continuous tour line all day long at the Festival of the Forks a few weeks ago is an indication that there is renewed interest in this centerpiece of downtown Albion. I watched the line all day long in front of the Bohm at the Festival from my booth two doors away. I was reminded of many years ago when yours truly was part of that long line in the early 1960s which stretched all the way to Weatherwax Drugs (now the location of Fedco) to see the Disney film, "101 Dalmatians." Anyway, since the Bohm is now poised to re-open and return to showing movies again, Iíve got something special to share with our readers this week.

Back in 1995, the late Louie Lusk gave me a "souvenir" from the Bohm Theatre. Printed many years ago, it is a Bohm Theatre ticket good for one free admission, hand signed by George A. Bohm himself! This card- stock ticket measures 4 ľ x 2 Ĺ inches. The text, typed with a manual typewriter, states, "Bohm Theatre, (Admit One), Friday, August 25." Then, in special red ink, is the hand signature which reads, "George A. Bohm, Mgr." No forgeries here, thatís for sure.

Gosh, thereís no expiration date on this! I will have to wait awhile to redeem this however, because the next time August 25 comes up on a Friday will be in the year 2017. From our Historical Notebook this week we present this special ticket. How many of our readers are planning on going to see a movie at the Bohm when it reopens this fall?

One Bohm Theatre ticket, hand signed by George A. Bohm himself!
