In the middle 40s, immediately following WWII, the KRIM, was an economy house. I remember paying .09 cents to see three movies and
a cartoon an newsreel. The movies were from the 30s and relatively
recent B movies. Two I remember was Paul Muni in Scarface and also
James Cagney in White Heat. This format lasted until the KRIM became an ART theater featuring foreign films, The KRIM was right down the street from the RKO UPTOWN, a more upscale theater, and was seemingly seeking a way to stay open.
