P M and L Theatre

The PM&L Theatre has–or had–a ghost. Folks reported a ghost girl who turned lights on and off and made strange noises. But a retired longtime theater volunteer, Elmarie Beno, has admitted creating the ghost and perpetuating the rumor for years. Some say there really is a ghost, despite the ruse, and others say the strange noises are a result of an adjacent shoemaking shop’s equipment.
