This movie theater was located between Gral. Lee and Lacret streets. It was cozy, my very favorite as a child, especially in winter, and only 20¢. I remember seeing Virginia Mayo, Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman movies there, with Harry James, Dick Haymes, Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey, “Leave Her to Heaven” with Gene Tierney and Jeanne Crain. In the evening in summer they opened a small window high on the east side to let the breeze in. A stand on the portico of the Café Cristal next door sold the best “fritas” ever.
