When DavyDuck says the spilled drink went all the way to the front, he kids not. I remember many times at Renton Village being on hands & knees scraping that nasty stuff off the floor along with all kinds of candy and popcorn mixed in. Once you were done that task, you didn’t eat the stuff for weeks! It was fun to work at Overlake, I remember doing some late deposits at the bank after closing along with the manager. I also remember replacing the seat covers all the time, because of smokers leaving live cigs on them. I also remember a night where we had to take a seat out of Cinema I because it was still burning. Fun times!

While I was working at Renton Cinema, 1974-1976, Charles Osgood was the manager. I remember popping corn back in Cinema II, we got to be good at it and quick! “The Way We Were” played for many months. I remember when “Earthquake” came out. Those huge woofers actually moved the building so much, that I remember seeing cracks in the plaster. I think DavyDuck would know if there was any real damage done to the structure. I think I remember working with DavyDuck and possibly working with him at Overlake Cinema.
