Adults 65 cents

Avenue Theater mural

Vacation and work have left me with no backlog of Downey Daily pictures. Which explains why, after a full day of work and dinner out with my parents, I'm driving around Downey at 9pm looking for a picture.

As is often the case at night, I'm drawn to downtown Downey. And the first thing I notice, with its bright marquee lights, is the completed Avenue Theater mural. (You can see the work in progress in Joan's post from a few weeks ago.) It looks inviting enough to walk on in. I wonder if 65 cents was expensive when West Side Story played here in the 1960s.
