Susan Lebovitz Feinberg, 10/2011:  "...I am writing because someone sent me the email about the Memphis Movie Theaters.  My Dad (Dave Lebovitz owned and operated several "Black" movie theaters:  Ace, Harlem, and Georgia.  He and his brother also owned and operated three Drive-in movies:  Sky-Vue, Lamar, and Sunset (West Memphis).  Unfortunately I have very little information in the way of pictures; he died in 1988..."
