The news that the old Mission Theater is torn down just about breaks my heart. When I was a teenager, I used to work there with my best friends in high school. It was so great to work there – the “hub” of activity on weekend nights and seeing who was with who, the smell of the popcorn (that machine made the best popcorn I’ve ever had), the old 50s style seating and lighting. I worked there through the renovation to turn it into a double cinema. You wouldn’t believe the pounds of old gum that was stuck to the seats!
Anyway, I have some very fond memories of growing up and visiting the theater and then later, working there.
