On a Saturday in the fifties, you could take a dollar to downtown Benson, get a haircut at Porter’s barbershop, go next door and get a ticket for all-afternoon picture shows at the Princess, buy a Pepsi, Baby Ruth, and popcorn, and still have a dime left over for Sunday school collection plate.

I fondly recall going here with my mother to see big blockbusters like The Ten Commandments and The King and I. This is where my love of movies was sparked.
