I remember my mom taking me (age6-7)to the Sunset on Wednesday nights for the new movies and she would carry me home to 45th between Judah and Kirkham. Piggyback cause I was sound asleep. God Bless her!

When I got older, my friends and I went to the matinees for a quarter. Ten cents for snacks..still remember the 5cent popcorn machine with the bubble top with the red light. You put a bag under the chute and it would hum you a bag of warm popcorn and you still had money for a GoodnPlenty...hahaha! God I wish I had that machine here at home.
