One summer while attending Champion Pre-School, we went on a “field trip” to the Wynnewood. We saw Gidget Goes Hawaiian (1961). It will forever be my favorite Gidget film, partly because of the movie going memory. Several years later I went to the Wynnewood with the preacher’s kid. We saw Mary Poppins. I seem to recall they always played a short film of the national anthem along with a film clip which ended something like “and remember to attend church this Sunday at the church of your choice”. Yes, I grew up in Oak Cliff and I remember birthday cakes from Jan’s Bakery and movies at the Wynnewood Theater. Times have changed.
Does anyone remember the color of the TOWER curtin? The question came up in a conversation last week.
During the late 1960’s early 70’s, the theater building housed a popular nightculb/discotheque known as THE PHANTASMAGORIA. It was located just up the street from the original Highland Park Cafeteria. I have no recollection of the Knox movie theater; however, I remember quite well hearing promo spots for THE PHANTASMAGORIA on the popular Dallas station, KLIF 1190.
