The Saturday afternoon Matinee

Ultra Modern Theaters in their day

Before television became prevelent, the theater was the place for not only entertainment, but the news.


People flocked to the theaters to watch the "Movietone News" along with a first run Hollywood movie. Many a date ended at the movie theater, watching a movie or just enjoying the dark space for a little "alone time."


Restoring pictures of history is a fine thing and the memories involved are priceless.
