The Palace did not have multiple screens or seats that rocked. The concession stand had a person who handed out the popcorn along with a friendly exchange although it lacked automated multiple choice drink machines, nachos, and self serve gourmet popcorn bars with pump your own butter. But I firmly believe we got more than our money's worth when we went to the show.
I think of Old Yeller, HIgh Noon, Bridge on the River Kwai, Roman Holiday African Queen, Giant, A Place in the Sun, Sabrina, and of course, Harvey plus all the Alfred Hitchcock thrillers!
I still hum tunes from The King and I, An American in Paris, Singing in the Rain, and Showboat! My younger granddaughters may have the tunes to Frozen memorized, but I am wondering how many films today will be considered memorable over 50 years from now. We do have many more choices for films and for amenities.We do pay for that. For now, I am happy to have memories of nights out at the Palace, and will leave the ratings to the critics.
Ready to "Let it Go!"
