Flashback Friday - Let's go to the movies.
Click HERE to join in on the fun.
My answers: I remember going to the "Town Hall" in our town and watching movies when I was little. The one I remember most is "Lady and the Tramp." I remember after watching it we went across the street to the Dime Store and I bought a little glass figurine of Lady. I have no idea what happened to that figurine, but I remember getting it. I still love Lady and here's a picture of a drawing Kelli did for me a couple years ago.
When my parents became Christians when I was about 5 or so, our church taught against going to movies, so from then until I was 18 that was something we just didn't do (the church no longer teaches this way as strictly).
I remember there was a revival of "Gone With the Wind" when I was 18 and a girlfriend asked me to go see it with her. I asked my mom if I could go and she said, you're 18 now, you'll have to decide for yourself. So anyway, I went and saw it. What a great movie and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to see it on the big screen.
Since then I have read the book and the screenplay and seen the movie on TV too. I have also read the sequel "Scarlett"! As you can see this is one movie I have really enjoyed a lot..
I have never been in a movie, but there have been 2 movies filmed in our town since I have been working for the police department. Our officers have worked a lot of overtime for traffic control and security for these filmings. The first movie was "Harper Valley PTA" with Barbara Eden. My younger sister was used as a stand-in for Barbara when they were setting the lights and stuff for the scenes to be shot. Also, Woody Harrelson comes from my town and got his start in this movie.
I still enjoy going to the theater to see a good movie and my favorite movie snack is Raisonettes!
