I lived in this theater. My father was the film projectionist for 22 years. I remember Sam and Arnold smoking cigars in their office.

We used to get in for free. I saw just about every movie from 1970 to 1980. It started with a cartoon, then the previews of coming attractions and then the movie.

I worked the projectors for about two weeks. I can still remember the dots on the right hand corner of the film. I remember splicing the coming attractions together.

Reviewing the film, installing the next reel. The carbon rods, then the arc.

saw alot, learned alot.

Miss you Dad
