The man in one of the photos is my cousin Doug Davis , who recently passed away. He was the manger there , must have been around 1974 or so. He invited a friend and I to come there to see a movie , I think it was a Godzilla movie. He set us up in the projection booth and access to the snack bar after he gave us a mess of food from McDonald's. My friend and I were both a little sick to our stomachs when my mom came and picked us up. She was very upset that we took advantage of the situation and stuffed ourselves with about everything the snack bar had to offer.
Hard to believe that was just about 40 years ago but I still remember it very well. I was shocked to hear of Doug's passing because he wasn't very old and always appeared to be in good health. I remember Plaza 2 opening and it was a very big deal at the time.
