I saw my first movie – “Rebecca” – at the Elm when I was about 4 or 5. It had an upstairs lounge furnished in art-deco (purple sofas, oval mirrors, bronze lighting fixtures). During the years I attented PS 199, I spent many Saturday afternoons there watching two full feature films, the news of the week, several cartoons and a couple of trailers (about 4 ½ hours of viewing), all for the price of a quarter. I have a distinct memory of kissing my first girlfriend – in the childrens' section!
