Wow! I remember going there in junior high with my girlfriend, Ginger (from Landrum JH). We watched True Grit. She kept dropping her arm off of the seat into my seat hoping I would hold her hand. What a dope I was! Also, remember seeing Planet of the Apes and Escape from the Planet of the Apes. The last film I saw there was circa 1980ish when the theater played The Beatles' Let It Be as a midnight showing! Great memories as I grew up in Spring Branch.

I remember going there when we lived with my dad circa 1967/68. I remember seeing The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and The Creature from the Black Lagoon. I remember the mosquito PIC’s on the car dash and placing the speaker inside the car. Great memories.

I lived across the street from the Delman during school year 1965-1966 when I attended third grade at Maple Lawn elementary. My brother and I spend many weekends at the Delman. I remember a teen age girl was there every weekend always picking on the kids. I thought her name was Shelly but, through this post, learned her name was Sally, the owners daughter! I remember seeing The Hallelujah Trail, The Sons of Katie Elder, Eldorado, The Sound of Music, Cat Ballou, Shenandoah and several other films. We lived in the Raleigh Street apartments near a park.
