We were stationed here from 1970-1975, my dad, James Redmon Sr (Jim ) was a Staff Sergeant and one of his jobs was to pack parachutes. We lived at 124 Idaho Street. My sisters and I ( James Redmon Jr ) would walk to the theatre to see an afternoon movie.

My new bride and her cousin attended a movie here in 1969 while I was working swing shift for the 434th TFS WCS section and she got a parking ticket. Being new to Air Force life, she didn't concern herself with restricted parking, we laugh about that still today, but I didn't at the time.

I watched E.T. there for the first time in 1980. I was pregnant with my first child. I'd forgotten that until I saw the picture of the theater. I remember because we moved shortly after that. My husband was the Shoppette manager at the time. What good times and good friends!!

Right next to the TLF. I would walk over to the theater when we stayed there when my dad PCS'd in/out.

As a military wife this is where I saw Jaws for the first time. I remember standing in line outside the theater and listening to all the screams inside from those watching the movie.

Summer nights we kids would invade and occupy the theater in hordes!

The popcorn was fresh, and it had a crying room for the kiddies. You could watch a movie in peace. Of course, if it was a kid's movie, the adults were in the crying room and the kids had the theater! :-)

Ahh! the old base theaters. Movies 25 cents, popcorn 15 cents, candy bar 5 cents and a Coke 10 cents. Lots of John Wayne. The good old days.
