Saturday Afternoons At The Oasis
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.
