Pre multi-cineplex!

As a kid, the indoor theaters I went to were so plush!! One in particular had velvet drapes, a balcony, fancy wall hangings with dim lighting, carpeting everywhere, and heaven forbid nowdays...an enclosed smoking room where they could light up and still watch the film. We also got TWO MOVIES AND A CARTOON!! for the price of a .50 ticket!!

Ok..now I sound like my parents!

OK, but please don't share the nickle Hershey bar story. It just depresses me.

Just for that!!! They WERE a nickle...popcorn was .10..a drink was .15!!LOLOL I used to take my .25 for school lunch and walk to a place called the Hip Hop Drive-In where I would buy a Coke and a hamburger. I was in the third grade and the song that was always playing on the jukebox was "I wanna hold your hand"ROFL

I have a confession to make...my name is Cheryl...and I am a chocoholic. Every time my dad tells me one of those stories of struggle during the Depression years, all I can think of is, "I wish I had been alive when Hershey bars cost a nickle."

And if there's a great movie on AND a bag of Kisses, OOOOH, just shoot me now, shoot me now...

We had one of those near me in MN, too. Plush seats, draperies, all that. The color scheme was hot pink and orange! And the seats rocked! You hardly ever see that anywhere anymore.

And I don't remember what tickets or concessions cost, but I know they were really cheap!

Better watch it, you two, or I'll start in with, "In MY day, if you wanted to see a movie, you had to walk ten miles - through five feet of snow - and then shovel a path to the door before you could get in! We EARNED our movies!" ROFLOL!!!
