I liked preview night and would watch the sky for the searchlights.
The Pomona, California Fox Theatre was built in 1931. I was six. I was living in a rooming house run by Mr and Mrs Butcher. They were the parents of my future brother in law Butch. He later married my sister Jean. Their daughter Ruth was a very good looking girl who had a job as a usherette at the new theatre. This six year old boy was very impressed.
What a fancy place. I remember that the floor of the outside foyer was polished cement aggregate.
