Durand-Hedden Seeks Theatre Memorabilia -- and Memories

For an exhibit, share what you know or have

Remember or hear family tales about the Maplewood Theater’s glory days?

The Durand Hedden House and Garden Association wants to hear from you!

In preparation for a forthcoming exhibit, Durand Hedden is collecting pictures, ephemera, and anecdotes about the Maplewood Theater’s 86 year run.

Did you happen snap a Polaroid when Ghostbusters was playing? Found something on eBay you want to share with the world? Even as much as an old ticket stub, we want it! Stories and memories are also welcome.

Contact info@Durandhedden.org 973-763-7712 to help make this exhibit a success.

My friend and I got thrown out of the Maplewood Theatre all the time (at Saturday matinees) by a football-player-lookin blond-buzz-cut guy who was the usher. We would have our feet up on the seats in front of us or be giggling. He was doggedly tenacious like Javert -- hunting us down and eliminating us once again. :)

The theater was designed in 1927 by William Lehman Architects (then in Newark) who completed many such commissions during the hey day of motion picture palaces. They also did the Clairidge in Montclair. Jerry
