Fun at the Movies

I have blogged before about our little movie theater here in Lake City
I know it doesn't look like much, but they do show first run movies.
Phil and his wife have been operating this place for over 40 yrs. now.
This is such a small town that I am not sure they make much of a profit, but
they are the type of folks that would just do this for the community that they love.
The interior is a warm and cozy place with paintings of old time movie stars on the walls. It is also a place where you know most the audience. It takes me back to when I was a teenager and went to the movie, in my small town, on Saturday afternoons and saw most of my classmates.
First run movies are shown Friday and Saturday nights and a matinee on Sunday. Tuesday's are vintage western night and Wednesday a classic movie is shown. We went Weds. night this weekend and saw the 1985 hit Back To The Future.
The owner Phil always comes out to award a door prize. This night he was dressed as the wild eyed Dr. Brown from the movie. I had not seen this movie since 1985 and I think it was even better this time, or maybe it was the environment in which I saw it.
If you are ever in Lake City...don't miss going to the movies!


  1. What fun and it appears to be a wonderful community experience.

  2. It looks like a wonderful place to come see movies. There was a showing of the trilogy last fall at a rep theatre near my home. It's wonderful to see those films on the big screen.

  3. What a lovely little cinema and I can understand how you must find it great fun to visit.

  4. Going to the cinema is so fun. Back to the future I have seen several times, also on televison. I have seen the scenes with the clock in the Universal Studios in LA aswell.

  5. There doesn't seem to be a lack for anything to do in your area!
