Default Movie Palaces of Days Gone By

This was the inside of the Oriental Theater in Mattapan MA, where I spent many a day watching double features,and a slew of cartoons.

This place was great...we had a twinkling sky, buddha's at the exits with green lit eyes Some of the rows had lights at the first seat, and oriental carpeting..

Tha rest rooms could have come out a Busby Berklee musical of the 30's...black laquer, huge urns and it was painted red...Sadly, it's now an electical warehouse. I wonder how much of the inside is still there.

Did you have a movie palace like we did?
