I saw a lot of good movies at that theater. I remember the mosquitoes being so bad that we had to burn little coils of insect repellent called Pik just to survive the movie. There was, of course, the standard playground beneath the screens, but we were never allowed to venture to such wondrous environs.I’d love to find a photo of that old gem.

I went there but I can’t recall seeing any movies…:) We use to go to the exit and back. If that didn’t work we had a trunk full of movies goers that didn’t have enough money to pay there way in……they got smart and stated checking the trunks…..
