Another Memory Bit The Dust Today
I heard on the news today that one of my memories and a landmark in my old neighborhood bit the dust, gone forever. Just a few days ago I was commenting in Jimmy's blog about the Mission drive-in theater in San Antonio. It was in my old neighborhood but before that it was a place Mel and I went to on dates. Not long ago they still had movies there on week-ends but today its gone. I wish I had known and went there to take pictures like others were doing today on the news. One man and his son were interviewed. They said they remember watching movies there until four in the morning one time, something to do with "Planet Of The Apes". In the 50's there were many drive-in theaters to choose from on a Saturday night in San Antonio but they have all long been gone with the opening of new indoor theaters. The indoor theaters were all downtown back then. Odd how you just think something will always be there and when you see that big machinery knocking it to the ground you can't help but feel sad.
