We loved those Little Rascals movies. We used to go to the Riviera Theater at Joy Road and Grand River on Saturday afternoons. For 10 cents, we saw a cowboy movie, an hour of cartoons and a Little Rascals movie or a Superman serial. Popcorn or soft drinks 5 cents. And we walked up there and back home, and nobody ever bothered us!
