Our family was in Naples, Italy circa 1955 while dad was stationed there...so a question......

We used to go to the American Theater or cinema there in Naples.  I recall a castle close by (Nouvo ?) and there was balcony off the lobby and consession area that I recall that you could see Mt. Vesuvius.  Any of you recall the location of the theater if you maybe have been there?   Looking at a satellite image of Nouvo there seems to be a lot of demolition to the northeast.  Looks as though they are in the process of razing and rebuilding an entire area there.  Unfortunately all my family there at that time have passed away save my sis as she was born in Naples in 56.

My experience with Naples-25 years ago emergency landing at a military base. We flew at low level, heavy landing no flaps and blew out the landing gear. Still as we came in I could tell it was the most gorgeous place on earth. Maybe it was the adrenaline.
