: Every Sunday my family, dad, stepmom, stepbrothers/sisters, and I would
: take the bus downtown, walk to the "Mexican Emporium" aka the Thrift store, do a little shopping and then walk over to the movie house on Market Street. Every other Sunday we would alternate the movie theatre, between a Spanish movie in the Mission district (I think it was somewhere on 24th street) and the movie theatre downtown. The movie theatre downtown was a beautiful theatre with red curtains and a huge stage and I think I paid 25 cents to see the show - I really can't remember the name of the movie house, must be alzheimers! After the movie we'd stroll down Market Steet window shopping and walk to the bus stop on 5th & Mission and head home (Bernal Heights).

Could it have been the Fox, on Market and 10th? It had to have been one of the grandest movie palaces ever built on the West Coast
