Mamie must have felt too ill to go to the funeral since she was so fond of Uncle Carl. It looks like moving out has helped the relationship with her mother a great deal.
Tin Pan Alley was a 1940 musical set during WWI. This was typical fare of the era and even the smallest of towns had a movie theater of some kind. Darlington's was a tiny one!
