Today's ushers don't make much money, either. The average wage for a movie usher is around $9 per hour, or $18,900 a year [source: Bureau of Labor Statistics]. What's more, going to the movies isn't the event it used to be back in the '40s and '50s. Catching a flick is a super-casual experience; back then, it was a grand night out and patrons were treated grandly, too".

    We also had a Colonial Theater in my home town. It had a double balcony. The top one was closed off when my time came around. I saw the re-release of Gone With The Wind there in 1965. The theater is gone with the wind now, and I can't find a single picture of the inside.

    Outside, 1920



    Just a picture I thought was cute.... Looks like the Fifties.

    What a coincidence. 1952 I did exactly the same thing at the Piedmont Theatre.
