It’s Friday night which means it’s opening day for new releases, so I guess this is the beginning of the last weekend for the Quad, I know it’s technically the Saginaw 12 or something. The number of screens and the name has changed several times over the years, but it will always be the Quad to me, I watched Star Wars there when I was 7 years old and seen many Hollywood block busters, not to mention a few duds. I told my kids they are giving away pieces of the screen and my son laughed and wondered why. I told him, imagine how many moves the projector shone onto that white fabric revealing some of the greatest movies ever made. I also wonder how many people over the years have looked at it and laughed, screamed and cried watching there favorite movie. I also remember when the left side was the cheapies and my wife and I would go there for a cheap date night, since I’m cheap we waited to see a lot of movies so we could watch them on the big screen instead of the little TV and renting a VCR tape. I am going to miss the old theater, but I am also looking forward to the New Quad, and yes that is what I am calling it, I am not sure what the name of the new theater is, but New Quad sounds good to me.
