When I was a kid in the 1950s' the price of admission was 26 cents. For this price on a Saturday afternoon, you got 2 movies, 5 cartoons, & of course, coming attractions. It was a great place to spend the day. They were very strict regarding behavior & wouldn’t hesitate to toss you out. You weren’t allowed to bring in what we called “polly-seeds” since the shells would stick to the floor. They also had sweepstakes of a sort when they gave out dish ware etc.
