    Figuring that the picture is about 1965, $29K is not that cheap. It is all location in real estate. At that time, you could buy a home in the Hudson Valley of NY for one-half that. This year, I sold a very nice 2/2 condo in Florida for $31K.

    Perhaps you are referring to "theatre" instead of the more/currently common theater. If so, you may consider this a French connection to Loewy.

    There's a Corvette coming from right & Studebaker used McKinnon/Chevy engines & there's a Valiant escaping to the left, talking about designer similaritys...

    This is technically correct!
    While we generally associate Loewy with the GMC Scenicruisers, the fact is, he holds the patent for the "Double-Deck Coach" in partnership with Orville Caesar, regardless of its configuration or brand.

    Hovering over the photo will produce a misspelled name that is an obvious clue.

    Those Buses have to be the "Trailways" answer to the Greyhound Scenicruiser Buses.

    The "Secret Studebaker Connection" may have something to do with that obviously "Premier" showing Day of that Movie or one of the Characters in it.

    Those busses look nothing like the Scenicruisers. Scenicruisers were longer, had more windows, and had two rear axles. Also, the "hump" was much taller and had a windshield.

    I thought so too, but didn't his designs have two rear axles? My next guess is the movie being shown is somehow connected to a Studebaker car or person?

    I do wish I could buy a villa for $29,000 today though...

    I don't believe those are actual Scenicruisers.

    Knockoff lookalikes, perhaps made by C.D. Beck Co.?

    Hardly!

    It's the famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in California.

    $29K might buy you a chunk sidewalk block there now, not a villa-maybe in South Bend, but not in CA!

    My first full time job was at a movie theater when "How To Murder Your Wife" came out. I still enjoy it every time it shows up on the small screen.
