My little pumpkin creation takes me back to a magical place I visited as a child. I grew up in a very small town called Atlanta, Texas that had a small family owned movie theatre with only one screen. The theatre seated 728 people in orchestra and balcony levels. It in my opinion was the most magical place in town.  What made it so magical you ask?....... imagine if you will walking into a buttery popcorn scented fairy tale land. One of the first memories I have of it is my mom and dad taking my little sister and I to see Bambi. I remember feeling butterflies in my tummy as I walked up to the bright lights of the marquee that sheltered the entrance and ticket booth to get in line. It felt as if it took a lifetime to get to the little window to pay to go inside. As we walked in I could see to the right a three deminsional life size shadow box display of bambi and his magical forest. Looking into this whimsical display made me feel like if I stepped over the red braided rope I would have been transported right into the forest. Bambi looked so life like....I coulndn't take my eyes off of him.... thinking that if I looked away he was going to move and I'd miss it. I believe that gazing into the display was the best part of going to the movies. I could go on and on about this theatre and all the fond memories I have of it.... I hope you all enjoyed my memory of the most magical place I have ever seen :)

  1. Reminds me of going to see "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" with a pocket full of smuggled candy. I LOVED that theater!
