Mom would take us shopping for clothes at Goldblatt’s — those stores were actually respectable then — or Jack Robbins, maybe have some lunch under the Golden Arches. Then we’d stop at a Rexall Drug store, buy candy and pop (movie theater concessions were always expensive), sneak it inside, and watch cartoons followed by a Disney movie, or maybe an old Benji flick.
