The weather was absolutely perfect tonight. Another reason why doing a Walk-In makes more sense for me. Too nice to be sitting inside a car.

They sell popcorn, but not sure it's bucket style. So, your technique is null and void.

You're crazy! Be sure to wear a bib with your nacho's. Ha.

Hey, you know they are playing The Goonies next week? That was actually the last movie I saw at the Point Loma Theater before it became a book store. I may go to that one too. They need to screen Jaws since that was the last one I saw at the Roxy Theater. I would for sure go to that one.

Jaws is still one of THE scariest movies of all time.

I am going to be slammed for the next 2-3 weeks unfortunately...if I have any hope of getting through this full issue of detective I am going to have to dig in big time...

it's worth it though...I really want to do the full issue if I can.

Valley Circle Theater (Mission Valley, San Diego)




I loved this theater!!! This wasn't in PB, but over in Mission Valley which is just a 10 minute drive from PB. I have a lot of fond memories of this theater. The two films I remember most about this one is that this is where I saw Star Wars for the first time. Twice on the same day actually. Ended up seeing Star Wars 4 times at the same theater during its initial run. The other movie that I remember seeing here was The Karate Kid. I remember walking through the lobby after the movie was over and begging my Mom to let me take karate lessons. Hi-ya!! What was really cool about this location is that just half a parking lot away (to the left of this picture) was another theater called Cinema 21 which had the biggest single screen in San Diego at the time. I will post a pic of that when I can dig through and find a suitable picture to my liking.

They don't make 'em like they use to. Now it's all Multiplex theaters.

*Sigh*

I saw Raiders Of The Lost Arc at the Grossmont Theater, which for me is STILL the granddaddy of all movie houses. I have never been in a more lush, surreal environment for a movie. It made Raiders even better than you could possibly imagine. Yes, I saw it twice there on opening day too! Haha! I've searched online looking for a pic or two of the original Grossmont Theater, sadly there are none to be found. Bah!! I saw a few Bond films there as well.

FYI, I'm sure you remember this, but Valley Circle was the ONLY place in San Diego showing Star Wars, which made the lines ungodly long!!!

Grauman's Chinese Theatre





Even though this theater isn't in my town or even in my city (it be in Hollywood, California), I still wanted to give a shout out to Grauman's Chinese Theatre since I have seen a movie there. But for the life of me I can't remember what movie it was. This was after all back around 1980 or something when I went there.

Ah-ha!!!! Now I remember what movie it was. It was Time After Time with Malcolm McDowell. I started visualizing the props they had outside the main door of the theater and one of the props was the actual Time Machine used in the movie. So, I wasn't that far off in placing the year. The movie came out in 1979. Take THAT failing memory!!!!!

I still think they should tear down the condo's and put back the original Drive-In just off the Freeway.
