Saturday at about noon, a gang of us would walk from Kosciusko St. up Lewis Ave to Stockton St. A right turn and we would be at the theater before one o'clock before he price;30 changed. It cost us about 21 cents and we were there until about 4:30.We sat through: Pathe' News, Coming attractions, 4 - 6 cartoons, a movie short (Joe Doaks Behind the Eight Ball or March of Time). and then would come "chapters". These were the popular serials that got kids to the movies every week. Buck Rogers, Superman, Nyoka Queen of the Jungle, etc. And then finally the main feature followed by a "B" picture, usually an oater (western). This was the 1940s version of child care and only cost 21 cents for half a day!
