|The Ritz Theatre in Clinton, Tennessee|
So many memories from this theatre. This photo was made in 2007, there
was an Andy Griffith Show event there that evening.
Sometimes I wonder how much of my life was spent in movie theatres. I loved movies and spent many happy hours in local movie theatres, especially the Ritz Theatre in my hometown of Clinton, Tennessee. It was also a thrill to go to the beautiful Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville. It still gives me cold chills when I think of the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, like magic, coming up from the floor and seeing the guy playing the organ. Again like magic, it would disappear into the floor.
Recently I have been thinking of the lasting impressions made on me by the many hours spent at the Ritz
when I was a child. I know there were times I must have been to the theatre three times a week! I am guessing I was around ten or eleven when I saw the following movies. These are etched in my warped brain ... I loved them!
Thank you, dear blog readers, for spending a little time with me and my silliness. I sure appreciate each and everyone of you!
