That was so kool. My cousins lived at 20th & Quintara and we would go there to the moives whenever I could get over that way. My favorite theater;s were the Grand, New Mission, and Crown on Mission St. Between 23 and 20th. We used to go the Crown on Saturdays for 09 cents. Not all the time, but for special occasions. That was also my first introduction to Pizza at a place called "Toto's" They used to toss the dough in the air, then cook them, and then serve samples to those looking in. It was on Mission St. too.
