All I know is I had a great time working there through high school and many of the work ethics I learned from Andy Rockefeller I still hold dear today. Oh…I’m getting all choked up! <wink>
Dan B…sister Betsy???? LOLOL Yeah…me, April, Kim, Claire, etc took you under our wing before we graduated so you and your friends could be the next generation of Flick workers! The ice fights were brutal if I remember correctly. I recall you having a nice ice cut under your eye. Remember the ice maker, in the slop closet in theater 1. And if we needed ice during a movie it stunk having to go in there, shut the door, then turn the light on and get ice very quietly!!!! I still tell people that Andy was the best boss and all I needed to learn about work I learned from him. Great to hear from you! Keep in touch!!! (
The Flick was next to Heartland Grocery Store. Child World was over at Shoppers World before Toys-R-Us moved in, not at Sherwood Plaza.
I worked at the Natick Flick from 1983-87. It was the best job anyone could have in high school. Then all my friends also started working there. Andy (the owner after Tom Duffy..I knew his son Mike) was a great boss!! It was one huge party! I have a piece of the office moon scape wallpaper in a photo album. We had a great time all the time. Showing midnight movies. Running movies during school hours when we didnt' feel like going..shhhhhhh!! Ahhh..the good ole days!
I used to work at the Natick Flick. “Route 9’s quality discount theater” as I used to say on the answering machine that gave the movies titles and times. It was the best time of my life. The owner, Andy, was an amazing boss and a great man. At the ripe old age of 15 I was the office manager and learned many of the skills I still hold dear today. I worked there until the summer before my freshman year in college. I moved to Michigan in the summer of 88 and when I came home and saw it was a drug store…I wanted to cry. But..life goes on. Andy..if you read this…HI!! Thanks for everything!
