During the 30’s the El Rey would have “Dish Night” on
Tuesday or Wednesday night. Between the double feature the
house lights would come on and the theatre Mgr. would start the drawing for Fiesta type dishes (sets) If you had the right ticket number you went home with a set. This was during the Big Depression
and better that they had a drawing for a ham or a chicken.
On Saturday afternoon I could see a western, cartoon and
a Saturday matinee serial for ten cents, for five cents more I could buy a roll of Necco wafers. And that shot half of my allowance.
