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



Pretty Woman


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