the palace theatre
in its heyday, the palace theatre in corner brook, newfoundland was a hot spot. not only could you go to the daily matinee for 10 cents, live entertainment was a regular occurance. when i moved here in 1975 the palace was no longer showing movies. it had become a bingo hall. almost every evening in the summer when you walk along broadway, doors open to let in the fresh air and out the smoke, and look in from the dark street at the noise and colour inside, you can still get the feeling of what it must have been like 60 years ago... this yarn is called "bingo night" and is listed in my etsy store.
