Another childhood memory brought back to me! I LIVED at the Waldo through grade school. Nearly every Sunday my friends and I would go to the Waldo for the double feature, then walk over to Katz Drugs for a phosphate, while waiting for our ride home. I didn’t realize it was that large though. I had many a birthday party celebration there. It was a much-loved theater. I am going to search for some pictures!

Oh wow. I can’t believe it. The Boxoffice article features the premiere of “Magnificent Men…” and I was there! I was working as a cashier, my first (summer) job after high school. I remember that night, and the theater, well. I remember the manager Chuck Barnes too. I loved that theater. My dad worked in the movie business for 50+ years in KC. My favorite theaters were the Brookside and the Waldo (and the Uptown and Midlands). I saw Flower Drum Song at Brookside 5 times! What great memories. Thank you!!!
