This was in fact a Quonset Hut. I remember running my hands against the outside walls after we had parked and were walking to the theater. There were Quarters inset into each of the front doors just above the key holes.

I saw many films in that place, but the only one that comes to mind is The Flight of the Lost Balloon. They actually issued each film- goer a pretend air-sickness pill as you entered the auditorium!

I grew up several blocks from the Pat. We were allowed to ride our bikes there for Saturday matinees. I don’t think kids enjoy that kind of freedom any more. Too bad. It’s little things like this that prepared us for bigger challenges to come. RIP Pat theater. Thanks for the memories.
