Saturday Afternoons At The Oasis

posted by grumpy on December 15, 2004 at 9:18 am

RIDGEWOOD, NY — I can remember going to the Oasis every Saturday with my older sisters.

Before entering the movie theater, we would stop at Mr. White’s candy store a few doors from the theater. My oldest sister would get so angry with me because I would constantly disappear somewhere in the theater, looking for friends, and she could never find me.

I also remember the matron with her flashlight constantly shining it down the rows of seats, and yelling at us to behave. As I got older, I continued to frequent the Oasis with friends, and sometimes after the movie, we would frequent Jimmy’s Pizzeria diagonally across the street from the movie house.

I remember that it cost 26 cents to get into the theater on Saturday, with a feature film, newsreels, sing-a-longs, and cartoons. A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Hi, bizzarely a lot of Alfie was filmed in Manchester England, for about six months last year four blocks of the city centre were dressed to look like new york, it was a very strange experience to have american street signs and pavements on familiar manchester warehouses, in some shots you can see the enourmous printworks building which houses the 20 screen filmworks cinema.

sorry this should have been on the other news item

A very nice memory.

Could this perhaps be posted to the running CT history of the OASIS THEATRE, Ridgewood, New York, page, rather than in news?

I bet so, but please remember we have several categories of news — including memories and cameos. The idea is to touch upon all aspects of “Cinema Treasures”, not just press releases from different theaters and chains.

Does anyone remember the dishes given away on Friday nights at the Oasis in the 1950’s?
