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.
