alameda theater 1954 thats where so many kids went on friday nights, cost 50 cents to get in and that was for a double feature not too many kids stayed for both movies, i always remember the theater manager with his too short red trousers kicking out row after row of kids for talking during the movie the kids never really seemed to mind . thanks leon theriault

1955 when going to alameda high school a bunch of us kids knew how to get inside the old strand theater, it still had the old piano located in the front of the theater the piano was used beacause there no sound with the picturesin those early days, there was movie film all over the floor area. there was still film inside the film cans, all of the curtains were sill hanging up. all in all the place was not in bad shape. every now and then i wonder what what the movies were inside those canisters thanks leon
