Week 12: Movies. Did (or do you still) see many movies? Describe your favorites. Where did you see these films? Is the theater still there, or is there something else in its place?
While growing up there were still the DRIVE IN Movie Shows where lot of the neighborhood kids would climb the fence and watch till they got caught, or fled away.
I remember the oldest walk in movie show was in Whittier, Calif (downtown) few blocks from Whittier High School. The candie was cheap, the ticket was cheaper at 49 cents for a double show...two movies and cartoon.
Most of the Drive In's are long gone and something else is in it's place. The Walk In Movie place are to much of Greedy Corp. Machines...Tickets are expensive, the Candie / PopCorn is sky high.
THANK GOODNESS for the DVDs....oh and the VCRs...I know my daughter has her collection of VCR tapes..the ones you could record several movies onto one tape deck. My collection is mostly of "Box Sets" of any given movie with several parts to it. Or Box xets of TV Shows no longer in productions..latest to leave the prime time to those from the good ole days.
