Ah, the things you find in scrapbooks made in childhood … witness this page, where I cut out the little ads from movies I went to and glued them into the scrapbook. Do any of these look familiar to you?
- This isn’t on the page, but Mom has told me she took me to The Sound of Music when it first came out (I think I was two). She said I sat through the entire long movie, interested the whole time. I guess I liked it even then.
- Bottom left corner – I remember In Search of Noah’s Ark. I stood in a long line with Dad outside the theater waiting to see it. I was so excited at the prospect of the real Noah’s Ark actually being found! Anything seemed possible …
- Remember Drive-In theaters? I went to movies at those every now and then with friends in high school. Seems so quaint/vintage now.
- I remember going to Escape to Witch Mountain with my sister. We loved sitting on the sides of the theater, because the sides had just 2 seats together. We had our own cozy row!
Do you remember going to the movies as a child? Do any particular movies stand out?
