52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Week 12: Movies

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History
Week 12: Movies

Another one "caught my fancy" ...

Thanks to GeneaBloggers and Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog for these prompts.

Week 12: Movies. Did (or do you still) see many movies? Describe your favorites. Where did you see these films? Is the theater still there, or is there something else in its place?

Movies

Movie theater in my hometown of Coon Rapids, Iowa, in the mid-1950s is long gone, of course. We were pretty regular movie-goers as teens... My wife and I dated the last year and a half of high school, so that is my first reference point. Preferred musicals - Love is a Many Splendored Thing and High Society - with the song True Love come to mind for the title/leading songs, respectively - each song played a role in out "courtship."

Later, in early days of our family - as well as 50 years later - Sound of Music is probably the all-time favorite - for the whole family! When our youngest, of three, daughters made her first trip to Europe a couple of years ago - her top priority was the Sound of Music tour in Austria - and she loved it!


Families are Forever!  ;-)
