Positive comments coming in for School's Theater project
Feedback on the Columbian Theater reopening work that's underway is running positive from those who remember what a wonderful part of childhood it was. Some of the comments we've received on our CM Facebook page are shared below:
Tim writes, "That's wonderful news. It's a great resource for Columbia. Programs there will bring people to the Square."
Marilyn writes, "So glad to hear the Columbian will be revived and used by the community in the future. My sister and I spent a lot of hours there when we were young, going on Saturday afternoons/nights and Sunday matinees. The cost of a movie was 25 cents; then we had money for popcorn 10 or 15 cents and maybe a drink. This was great entertainment for a lot of kids back in the day."
Susan writes, "Oh my gosh. My first kiss was in this theater. Loved ice cream covered in popcorn. Still love it."
Margaret writes, "I paid 15 cents to get in. Popcorn was 5 cents and the bags were beautiful colors. We went on Saturday afternoon."
Lisa writes, "Walking to town with Betty Sue Jasper for the double feature on Saturdays with my .50 cent allowance. 35 cent admission and a popcorn and coke. When I was really young I would go downtown with my dad to chat with Charles and Yvonne. Yvonne would put me in her lap in the ticket booth while she sold tickets."
Betty Sue responded, "Lisa, we sure went to a lot of movies. Fun times."
Daniel writes, "Saturday afternoon matinees, special memories!"
Barbara writes, "WOW Haven't been in there since Lance Burton Performed YEARS AGO."
Patty writes, "Loved that theater as a young kid always loved going there so many memories there too and I love the big screen!"
Nancy writes, "What an amazing gift to the community, and what a wonderful idea, Doug, Ben and Pam! That theater was such a part of my childhood. I went almost every Friday night in middle school, usually with Ann and others. We'd walk the square before going in and would see so many friends there, including, of course Charles and Yvonne Marshall. So happy to hear that this beloved theater is coming back to life!"
Melanie writes, "Watching all the Friday the 13th movies and then walking home in the City Cemetery on a dare and waiting until Thursday nights for bargain night. I loved the theater."
Laura writes, "Watching Aristocats there with Jill and Mindy and probably Liana. I was surprised by the cats on the window and choked on my popcorn, and snorted coke out my nose. Sorry again about that girls. Watching Raiders of the Lost Ark with Liana there. Yikes. That face melting scene."
