    • I can’t remember the name of the theater but I think it was somewhere on Whittier Blvd. My dad would drop me and a friend off, give me money for the movie and popcorn and then pick us up when it was over.

    • My friends and I would go every Saturday to the matinee. It was called the Mohawk Theater. They are restoring it now as it has become a historical landmark in the town.

It was so much fun, me, my mom and my aunt and I would be In my jammies and we would get a pizza and sit In the car and watch the movie and eat. It was the best times. Sometimes my mom would even let me go play on the swings with other kids cause there was a playground right In front of the screen...lol well under It, It was so cool. It was the Long Beach drive-In.estatic

    • It was the Loewe’s Valencia. Here in NY, each Loewe’s theater had a theme and the Valencia was a Spanish villa, complete with stars sparkling in the ceiling, ornate architecture and big goldfish in a pond.

    • Our’s was called, “The Vogue“.  The back 2 rows had the chairs that rocked!, but I can’t remember if we payed extra for that!  I remember me and my best friend, Whitney, saw “Jaws” there.  On the part where the girl swims out at night and gets eaten, I screamed along with everyone else in the theatre and almost choked to death on the “lifesaver” that Whitney had given me earliar.  Whitneys dad was great, he always shuttled us to the theatre.

    • Those were the good ol’ days..JAWS was really scary as a kid, Jo..We had a neighborhood theater on Grant St., don’t recall the name, but it was also rather shabby, but we kids didn’t care...the whole gang would head over and the movie cost 50 cents and $1.00 for a soda and popcorn..today, you are lucky if you can find a matinee for cheap..lol..estatic
