The Bel-Air was near the intersection of Charlotte Ave. and White Bridge Road. I trained there as a projectionist. The Drive-in scenes of “W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings” was filmed there.

As an adult, I never worked there. However, I did go there with my father who was into war films and saw “Von Ryan’s Express”.

We lived near the Bel-Air when I was a child and have many happy memories of the adventure of going to the movies there. We were allowed to wear our pajamas and sometimes we were allowed to sit on the roof of the car, which I’m sure annoyed anyone behind us. I distinctly remember seeing “South Pacific,” “Moby Dick,” “The Ten Commandments,” and some Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis movie there. Somewhere I have a great photo of the marquee but it’s hiding from me. I’ll post it if it turns up.
