On Saturdays, children went to the movie theatre where it cost 25 cents to watch five cartoons, two full-length movies, and become eligible for gifts donated by local merchants.  Parents did not attend, and a glorious time was had by all - talking loudly, eating candy and meeting kids from other elementary schools.

  1. My sister, Joyce, and I attended kiddy shows at the Strand Theatre in Orange, Texas, then walked down the street to the Royal Theatre where we watched a Western double-feature. I don't remember what we had for lunch - probably weren't hungry since we had just eaten Junior Mints, Milk Duds and Candied Almonds (they lasted the longest).
