Outside on the last day

My first job was at Southdale Cinema in Edina, MN, a fun mid-century theater that was built in 1966. I was working the last night it was open, August 16, 1990, and these are some pictures I took that night. The next day we had this horrible parade where the employees marched to the new theater, Centennial Lakes. Nothing like marching through a suburb in polyester uniforms.

 

The Galleria mall expanded to this space after it was torn down.

 

The final quality films that played:

 

Die Harder

Air America

Arachnaphobia

Ducktales

Pretty Woman

 

Ok... I guess I did see three of those...possibly more than once...but they were free.
