wow.. i almost went by there yesterday. i’m glad i didn’t, i think it would’ve been too much of a shock while driving. they wasted no time. but then they’ve waited for this day for the last twelve years and were ready. i was nine years old (59) when i first walked up to that ticket booth, paid my quarter and went in. i can’t remember that first movie or the next but there wasn’t a week after that i wasn’t in the Atlantic Theater. the movie that is most memorable to me was the 1960 13 Ghosts. it was the first 3D movie that came out. as you went into the theater they handed you the pair of 3D glasses (with one red cellophane lense & one blue cellophane lense) you’d need to see the ghosts with. and you did! that movie scared the hell out of me for years to come. it’s a memory i can keep, and i have for the last 54 years. in my childhood memory box i still have them 3D glasses that i saw the 13 Ghosts with in 1960 at the Atlantic Theater. thank you for including my memories into the history of the Atlantic Theater.
