The Hacienda Cinemas was my first job. I worked there in 1985. It was a second-run discount theater that showed movies about 6 months after they came out. I must have sat through Terminator and Runaway with Tom Selleck about 20 times. It was a good job – the pizza place next door would trade free pizza for free movie tickets. One thing I remember was that we didn’t pop our own popcorn – we bought it in huge plastic bags already popped and just poured into the heater bins. Yuck. I still don’t eat much popcorn to this day.

I have many fond memories of the Hacienda in the late ‘80s and early '90s. Saw tons of movies there on the cheap. Towards the end it was a $1 movie house. I think The Addams Family was playing at the time it closed. It certainly wasn’t elegant, but it was great entertainment value.
