I remember back in the late seventies when
my mother and step-father used to take me and my sisters to the
Adams theater. I remember the first movie we saw there. It was Denzel
Washington in his first major film, "Carbon Copy". from that week
on we made it a tradition.
Every Sunday night we would head downtown to the Adams theater
and see a movie. I remember seeing many Karate movies at the Adams.
Boy, those were the times!
Even though those were very good times for me, my most vivid and
special moment was when me and my sister went to the Paramount Theater
on Market Street when I was just thirteen years old. We saw "purple
Rain". My step-father gave us the money to catch the 34 bus downtown
and back. That was the beginning of my fascination for prince. Till
this day i am a HUGE fan of Prince and I will always be a HUGE fan
of Prince, and i thank the Newark Paramount theater for that.
