Saturday morning’s kiddie show at the Brunson was the place to be for all us kids in the 1950s — fountain drinks, popcorn, Sugar Babies and a dill pickle. There were contests on the stage, lots of screaming and fun for all.

After the crowd let out, there were plenty of stores to window shop, soda fountains at all three of the drug stores on Texas Avenue, and plenty to talk about as we walked home. Good times, great friends and wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Many people talked about the Metropolitan and Majestic in Houston,and the Colonial in La Porte, but our Brunson Theatre and Decker Drive-In were as good as it gets for the hometown gang.
