NEW CASTLE — Do you remember Leo Mickey?

He is, perhaps, the best-known theater manager in Lawrence County history.

If you went to the movies in New Castle anytime during the mid- to late 20th century, you undoubtedly saw Mickey. At various times, he managed the Penn, the Hi-Lander, the State, the Cinema and later, Westgate Cinemas.

In Monday’s special Memorial Day edition, “Mr. Mickey” will talk with Kayleen Cubbal about his remembrances of the movie business in New Castle. He’ll also share his thoughts about walking through the Hi-Lander for the first time since it closed.
