At the Movies 2, part 2

The Crest Theater in Sacramento celebrated its 60th anniversary by showing the movie it had in its first day, That Midnight Kiss. It was in classic Technicolor, and some of the older customers went wild for the singing star in that movie, Mario Lanza. It also showed me that opera stars actually invented wrecking hotel rooms. I bet maybe Axl Rose accidentally got tips from this movie.

The big news was that the theater showed off its renovated marquee, and it's the flashiest sign this side of California. Take a look....
