My dad, Earl L. Hubbard Jr, managed the Granada Theater in Buffalo, N.Y. in the early 1960’s and into early 1970’s. It was a marvelous theater with all the perks, wall to wall carpeting, padded seats, chandeliers and drapes that hung over the screen that opened and closed. The picture screen went wall to wall! It was a time when the movies were a big deal when the stars actually went to grand openings at theaters. I remember seeing Annette Funicello, Ed Wynn and Tommy Sands at the premier of “Babes in Toyland” and Todd Armstrong at the opening of “Jason and the Argonauts”. Thanks for the memories Granada Theater and dad, Earl L. Hubbard, Jr. from daughter Diana.
