Yell It Like It Is

History Lesson

Picture This

The East Beach area of White Rock at one time was home to the Park Theatre. The theatre was eventually vacated and razed in the 70's Following its demise a small twin cinema opened on Johnston Road just to the North of where BIN 101 is now located. The movie theatre operated into the early 80's before closing.

Finally, one of them jumped up and yelled at the other, "What about the powerful interest that controls you?"

And the other guy screamed back, "You leave my wife out of this!"
