They were open in the late 60’s. It was the next closest to my neighborhood once the Uptown closed.

Actually the dates here are in fact correct. This is referring to the origional harper theatre, not the one that is still open and now called harpos concert the theater. The origional harper theater closed around 1930 and is the one pictured here and as you can see the entrance is in the middle of the building whereas the one that opened in the late thirties had the main enterence at the corner of the building under a huge marquee.

The dates shown are incorrect. The theater opened around 1938, 39. When it opened, they had two truck mounted searchlights in front of the theater on Harper. I was there. The man in charge of the searchlights let me flash one of them around.

I have no idea when it closed.
