My earliest memory of going to the Showtown was 1977- saw Cinderella 2000.I had a friend at the time named Jay…his sister was married to the manager and I remember he had done some editing to the movie because he was afraid it was too dirty and he’d get busted. In the early 80’s they had a showing of that old chestnut-‘Poor White Trash’ on a double feature with ‘Poor White Trash 2’,I think…using the same ad campaign I had been seein since I was a little kid!–‘due to the controversial nature of the film…uniformed police will be on hand to supervise admissions’.Well there were no police,but there was a line about a mile long!They packed the joint!
