From the mid-1950’s through the mid-60’s, my family lived in the country, about 30 miles northeast of Flint. Whenever we’d come to visit my grandmother, who lived near Saginaw St. at E. Van Wagoner, two or three of us kids (or more, if we brought friends) would be dropped off at the Nortown theater. We’d pay 35 cents for a double feature and in those days the popcorn and drinks were much more reasonable than today. Later, as we grew, we’d walk the distance to/from the theater and grandma’s house. I saw a lot of double features as I was growing up and I have fond memories of the place. Thanks for being there when I needed you, Nortown!
