Saw “House on Haunted Hill” at the Temple when I was a kid. Love this theater and my memories of it.

I lived in Meridian from 1960 – 1965. I’m sure I saw many movies at the Temple but I remember seeing “The Longest Day” there in ‘62. They had a huge poster affixed to the walkway in front of the theater promoting the film. I remember the theater as being very lush with thick carpets, upholstered folding seats, beautiful architecture and a balcony area. Back then you could punch several buttons on the self-serv fountain drink machine and get a “suicide drink,” multiple flavors mixed together. Fun times for a dime. Tickets I think were 35ยข. Glad to see it’s still open.

Last week I attended a great organ concert at the Temple Theatre.
Mr. Dolton McAlpin played an hour long program on the 3m/8r Theatre pipe organ and did a marvelous job. The organ is maintained by Mr. Frank Evans and is in top shape.
