Scottie Atkins Spry Remember going to the Saturday matinee with friends - news reels, cartoons, the works! Sometimes we got to browse the toy department at Belk's until time for our parents to pick us up. Oh, the days of the Barbie outfits - we were so excited when they got new clothes in!
Steve Powell Tony, my brother, and I would walk there every Saturday morning to the matinee that Dad didn't get us to mow the grass or rake leaves. Sometimes, we begged him to let us do the yard work when we got home. Remember the serials of Jungle Jim and Flash Gordon with Buster Crabb.
Margie Peacock Hardy Saw lots of movies at the theater and remember shopping at Belk's often. I saved up babysitting money & bought a new bedspread & curtains at Belk's when I was in the 5th grade. It felt so good to buy them with MY money! I remember playing on the stairs & going down them on our bottoms! Lots of great memories in Decatur!
Ruthanne Mulvihill Went to the movies all the time (first date place!) and worked at Belks on Friday nights and Saturdays for several years. Both hold wonderful memories, as does all of Decatur during the 50s. It has changed greatly since that time, but it is still a wonderful place.
