I remember those too. LOTS of screaming!! My fond memories are the Saturday matinees, both the Gem and the Capitol,aimed at "kiddies". Cartoons galore and a feature often a sci-fi/monster movie or Abbot and Costello comedies. I also remember a re-issue of "Gone With The Wind"...what a big deal that was!
