This page contains pictures and mementos from our days back at ACHS and more pictures from our "Countdown to 50" Weekend held in late June of 2004.
Remember those movie passes that got us into any theater on the Island for 50 cents? And how many movie theaters on Absecon Island can you remember? How about the Hollywood, the Center & the Embassy --- all within a block of each other on Atlantic Avenue in AC? Or on the Boardwalk there was the Warner, the Apollo, the Strand & the Virginia. There was also the Beach, the Surf, the Colonial & the Roxy in AC. And downbeach we had the Ventnor and the Margate. Can you think of any more?
Davida Gardner remembered 3 more AC theaters: the Astor, the Capitol and the Lyric. Thanks, Davida!
