The Little Rascals

February 18, 2011

When I was 6 years old and bummed out that my broken arm had to be in a hard cast, my grandparents took me to the senior center at the end of town to “watch a movie and eat popcorn.”   For 50 cents, each kid got a soda and unlimited popcorn.  When the lights dimmed, we were all introduced to the little rascals.

 

This happened once every 2 weeks during the summer and I never missed a week.  

 

The popcorn was always plentiful, the soda always cold, someone ripped our tickets as we walked in (just like a real theater.)  I do not remember any of the escapades that the rascals got into... but I remember vividly the glow on the faces in the audience.  It was peaceful.  

 

The last time I visited home, I asked my grandfather to take me to a meeting at the VFW.  When I was there, I got to thank them in person and asked them if they still did those screenings and they do!  So, if you find yourself in Smithton, Illinois... and are 6 years old.... go check it out.  

 

I plan on building a movie theater in my home town one day.
