Tonight's special movie was Alice's Restaurant.

I love the theater. I think it's worth going for that...and the cartoon!...and the free popcorn! and the restroom.

I don't think the film has aged well. It's just freaky and badly made and badly acted. But as a time capsule it does have value.

The restroom. Back in the old days, as in 1940, restrooms had "rest" as part of the picture. There used to be a long couch in the entry room to this one, at least in the women's room. This part is larger than the area where the bathroom stalls are. There are only three stalls - making me wonder what women did, or if they maybe didn't need to go as often?...and there are two sinks. I think the plumbing is all that has changed. New faucets but not new sinks, and I'm not sure the toilets are new, don't seem to be.

Although it's inconvenient and small I hope it doesn't change any time soon. Even the tiles are original.

Here's a pic of the outside at night: http://www.locallinks.com/san_luis_obispo/SLO_pics/SLO250/A80081.JPG (no, I didn't take the picture). I did not find pix of the inside online. I believe I will bring my camera in with me next time.
