"Boys to the left,girls to the right"
I kid you not.
I can still 'see' the cranky old theater owner and his wife outside making sure the boys went in one side and the girls in the other.

If you ran a theatre that had regular kiddie matinees, you'd be cranky too. It was one of the major reasons I decided not to have kids. I raised enough of the little rugrats.

NATO. Long and checkered history there. It is now primarily a playground for the owners of Boxoffice Magazine and the major industry trade shows.

A friend and I were once denied entry to the movies because we were wearing short shorts (it was 1961).

Hubby and I don't go to the movies very often, but when we do, I carry 2 bottles of soda and a few candy bars for him and 100 calorie packs of snacks for me. The snacks offered at the concession stand at the movie theater is loaded with fat and calories.
