Brooklyn Back When - Open Thread



  • Hello and Happy Mothers day to all you wonderful Mothers.

    Bobby C . I do not know if that was the same mean matron who would check your ticket stubs and if it was the wrong color (meaning you already saw the whole show) she would throw you out! Since I am so much older then most of you, it was probably a different time and a different Matron. The show consisted of Two feature films, a couple of serials (like superman or batman), several cartoons and the coming attractions. They would change the ticket colors at the box office, timing it with a complete showing of all of the above. The Avon was a little more lenient. The Prospect cost a little more then the Globe and Avon so we seldom went there on Saturdays. The Prospect was a lot nicer though and they had an organ. The Organ would pop up and you would follow the bouncing ball on the words on the screen as you sang along! Before my time the Prospect had Vaudeville and some people who became big stars later in their careers played the Prospect. Believe it or not there was a sign painted near the top of the side of the Prospect which said "Talking Movies-Air Conditioned."
  • Gavin now 5 months old

  • Hi again
    Let me say Godzilla was really good.
    I enjoyed all 2 hrs of it.
    I would see it again.
    Completely different ( & much better)
    Than the original.
    It was so good that Godzilla got everyone in the theatre clapping & cheering him on
    At the end!!

    Dinner was delicious.

    Went to peppinos Italian restaurant
    Here in bay ridge. I love that they play
    Italian music all night.
    Hubby & I had cold antipasto &
    Spaghetti shrimp marinara.
    Have a great night!
  • Hi guys
    Happy Sunday!
    My grandson Gavin had his first taste of food today. He was introduced to sweet potato. My daughter Natalie made it with a sweet potato In the purée machine.
    He didn't like it that much.
    We all watched his reaction. Not too happy.
    I will try to post picture of him eating it.
    He will probably like fruit better.
    He took a spoonful & shook his head & shoulders. Too cute!!!
    Cooking now.
    Have a great night!!
