I recall in the late 1940s each car was issued a hand operated mosquite spray gun as the mosquitoes were very bad. As the cars exited the movie you gave back the “Mosquito Sprayer” at the ticket booth.

RockSalt: I knew your Father or Grand Father who was a collector of German Luger Pistols. We both were members of the “Tampa Bay Gun Collectors” club. He had a office at the “Center Theater” which was the former “Roxy Theater”.

The first movie shown at the “State Theater” was “The Out Riders” starring Joel McCrea.
