The Green Theater in La Plata

Located in La Plata, Missouri, the Green Theater is managed by the La Plata Historical Society.  It contains many exhibits showcasing the history of the town and its history.  Of note to fans of Doc Savage and in particular, Lester Dent, the Green Theater has a fine exhibit of memorabilia.  The La Plata Historical Society was very kind and opened the theater up Saturday morning for our group.  It was an experience I will always remember.

The following photographs are from a visit on June 2, 2018, when several Doc Savage fans met in La Plata for an informal gathering, A Bronze Conversation.
