The OST Theater (Old Spanish Trail) opened in the late-1940’s. It was a second run independently owned neighborhood theater. I worked there as in usher in 1953-54. Duties also included helping clean the theater and changing the marquee. I received and additional 75 cents for the marquee. Cleaning the theater had an extra bonus. A hand held blower was used to blow all the cups, popcorn bags and candy wrappers to the front to the theater where they were then swept up. Along with the trash was always some loose change…that was mine. Some days I collected almost a dollar :) The smell of a theater after a Saturday morning kid show is quiet unforgettable. The unique blend of chewing gum, popcorn, candy and Coke will be burned into my memory forever.
