The End

Lights Out at the Harbor Theater

Our neighbors owned The Harbor Theater in Lakeside (70’s -80’s). Lakeside is a section of Muskegon along Muskegon Lake….and a two block commercial area. We enjoyed many movie nights at The Harbor.

The Harbor Theater was a small two screen venue showing movies after they played in the big theaters….and only for a couple of dollars. Of course this was before DVD’s and Netflix. Times have changed and it is difficult to operate these types of theaters….especially in smaller towns.

A recent story on the closing of The Harbor Theater:

Businesses/organizations have life cycles….some longer than others. In the case of The Harbor….technolgy and the market changed. It was time for lights out.
