I worked as a usher when i was a kid my first job. Were ran how the west was wone for a month.I made $.65 an hour. And could go to eather the Ute or the Cooper theatres for free. We were jelles of the guys that worked at the Cooper there marke was behind a glass window so they didnt have to go out in the cold to change it. It was torn down when Cooper the owner build the new Ute 70. CIG gas bought the old Ute and build there building there.
I was a kid when the Brookhurst opened in 1961. It was buetful curtens were gold the walls were blue with walnut panling and white celings up to row 4 then the color on the walls and celing changed to soft yellow in front of the very large stage. The stage was wallnut. The screen was hugh it took the curtins a long to open to the very large screen. I went every Sat. They played all the big movies in stero sound and 70 mm it was stat of the art.There was never an empty set. I loved going in earley to here the music befor the movie stero was new and I loved hering summer place and other music soundtracks. I will miss it. Sam Brown
