My grandparents lived in the apartment above the marquee of the California Theater in the late 40s and early 50s. Grandad’s Sewing Machine Store was directly across the street, and we’d gaze down upon it from the window behind the marquee. I can hear the movies below and see the neon colors coming in the windows at night.
