I attended nearby Elias Howe Elementary School from 1951-1960. One morning during a school day the teacher walked us down to the West End for a free showing of the movie “Heidi.”

It seemed that Mr Schwartz, a bald-headed gentleman, was nearly always on the premises.

The Liberty closed in the early 1950s after a fire. I remember my father taking me in 1952 for the re-release of “Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs”. I only went there a couple of times as my family mainly patronized the nearby West End theater.

On Sunday, 9/19, I attended the Crest’s 7PM showing of “Alpha & Omega”. My ticket stub already had the Carmike name on it. I was distressed to count only six of us. With concession purchase I felt my $15.25 was much needed! However, it made no sense to have a 10PM show the same night for a child’s movie. I have gone to every new movie at the Crest since 4/26 and will continue to do so. I’m happily retired, hit about 5-6 movie theaters a week and am going to join LAHTF.

Ambling over to the Westwood Village for the 10:10 showing of “The Town” I was please to count about 100 in the audience. The Village did great business for “Inception” and I hope they survive.
