A Memory From The Past
A memory from my past popped up just now when I read Jack's entry over at Shipslog. When I was growing up there wasn't much entertainment in our small country town. Come Saturday night we were in high cotton though. A man and his son who owned a movie theater on the south side of San Antonio turned our high school auditorium into a movie theater. They would show one movie, usually a western, one continued serial such as Flash Gordon, and one cartoon. They even brought a commercial pop corn popper and something with soda (which we called soda water and it was a nickle) in it for sale. They would have an intermission and the older man nicknamed Pop Ellis would shout poppity poppity pop corn over and over. Boy! Did we look forward to Saturday night.
