I never missed a Saturday Matinee at the Parkside in the late 30's and
early 40's. At one time it was 10 cents to get in and 5 cents for jujubees.
There was always a serial, cartoon, previews and sometimes 2 movies.
We all sat way down infront. At that time only adults could sit upstairs &
no one I knew could afford the lodges. (Big comfortable seats in the front
of the balcony)
