These pictures bring back many memories....birthday parties in the front row of the balcony. (Always talk about how much fun it would be to throw your ice cream over, but no one really did!) Saturday matinees! You REALLY got your 20 cents worth.... (a double feature, pre-views, serial, cartoon, & newsreel.) (Remember the sudden flash of daylight from the right, when someone briefly opened the alley exit to let their friends sneak in?) Greatest memory of all was the night they turned the lights back on in Aug. 1945, and the marquee lit up for the first time in four years.
