The Wilma

I definitely remember walking by the bell in what was either a parking lot, or a park, downtown. Then I peeked through gaps in my fingers to watch “Snow White”. Memory’s strange… I remember doing that, but I’m pretty sure I only remember it because my mom always told me how I did it. I don’t think the original memory exists.

Supposedly I did the same thing at “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, a great movie involving crashing trucks. I was a big fan of trucks, and still remember seeing the hood ornaments on the German army trucks with the canvas backs distinctly. That’s pretty much burned in.

At some point in the early eighties The Wilma burnt down, and I think there’s a grass spot there now. But it’s been such a long time since I’ve really looked around Cd’A, there may not even be a grass spot.
