Q: I am the project researcher/historian for the Victoria Theatre in Dayton, Ohio. On January 1, 2016, the theatre will celebrate its 150th Anniversary. Disney films were very popular at the theatre in the 1950s and ’60s. Does the Walt Disney Archives hold anything related to the Victoria/Victory? From 1919 to 1989 the Victoria was called the Victory Theatre, but switched back to Victoria after renovations in 1990. Please let me know if you have anything. I am creating a permanent timeline display for the theater as my Capstone project for my graduate degree.

A: The Walt Disney Archives does not have any specific information on the Victory Theatre. It would take a tremendous amount of research to determine which Disney films might have played there.
