Yes, This is the Fox Parkside I remember in the mid 1960's. It was a clean and well run theatre then. 25 cents for two movies and the snack bar was reasonble. The Summer kids matinees did have 1950's horror films and one would buy tear off tickets in June for the Summer kids Matinees for 10 cents each if you bought the series tickets.

I was not one of them, but many of the Sunset Brats did go nuts throwing, spilling and harassing the Retard named Denny, who would freak out if you sat in his seat. Which was at the end of the row at the back of the theatre. The Manager smoked a pipe.
In the late sixties I saw Alice's Restaurant there before my Draft Physical.
