I also went to St. Thomas Aquinas school, but in the early sixties. I recall the school taking us to the Brook to see Disney’s ‘Fantasia’ and we didn’t like it at all, but we were made to stay in the theatre until the time that school would be out. In 1962 my friend Tommy Foley and I were going to see a kid friendly film at the Marine theatre and walked over to the Brook to see what was playing and saw the posters for ‘Dr. No’, which we saw instead. My mother was stunned to find that her eight year old son had seen the new James Bond movie, which I am sure was not approved by the Legion of Decency in the Catholic ‘Tablet’ newspaper. I lived on Schenectady Avenue and Avenue M, it was wonderful.
