Blooeyz2001 commented about Walker Theater on Jan 19, 2005 at 11:08 am

I was born in 1960. I live in Florida now, but lived in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn (on 60th Street between 19th & 20th Avenues) from ‘60-'69. From '69-'88, I lived on Staten Island. I remember seeing movies at The Walker Theatre as a child. For some reason “One Million Years B.C.” with Raquel Welch in 1966 stands out. Back then, going to the movies was like a “special event”! I remember the theatre was beautiful & impressive, especially to a kid. I remember walking along 18th Avenue, with my mom often. Stores that stand out in my mind are the toy store “Joyland”. Also, “John’s Bargain Store” & “Berta’s Bargain Store” which would both be equivalent to a dollar store today.
