Hi, Glordina! Sounds like you are doing well.

One of my few happy memories from childhood, was going to the movies with my mother. It didn't happen often, but it was magic when it did.

We'd go to The Palace, or the Southern Theater, Lowe's or the Ohio Theater. All of them were lovely, but the Southern and the Palace were elegant.

I'd go into the Ladies and The Palace, and it would have a huge entry with dressing tables and lighted mirrors. Vending machines would dispense small, "gold" tubes of lipstick. I remember once getting one of Baby Pink. It cost a quarter.

We'd go down to the theater, select a seat and wait for the movie beneath elegant, crystal chandeliers. The cartoon would come on, then the newsreel, followed by Coming Attractions...and then the movie!

Two stand out in my mind the most: "Pillow Talk" and "The Unsinkable Molly Brown." The latter especially was fun, because the audience clapped their hands, stomped their feet and actually gave Debbie Reynolds and Standing O after her raucous dance during the Brown's party where they introduce their "Royal Flush," and performed "He's My Friend."

It was magical.
