About me

Gender MALE
Location Salisbury, North Carolina, United States
Introduction I have always loved the movies and the movie business. Perhaps it is because I was born into it. My family owned and operated the two drive-in theatres in Statesville, N.C. until I was ten. I worked at the two indoor Statesville theatres as a teen. I was sent to Salisbury in 1971 to manage the Capitol Theatre. Through the 1970s, I managed, in addition to the Capitol, the Thunderbird Drive-In and the Terrace Theatre. I collected movies for many years and transported my 16mm projector all over Rowan County, showing movies, cartoons and comedies to groups, whether they wanted to watch them or not.
Favorite Movies My top ten movies: GONE WITH THE WIND (1939), NORTH BY NORTHWEST (1959), TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD (1962), THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939), THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL (1951), CHARADE (1963), TARZAN'S GREATEST ADVENTURE (1959), THEM! (1954), KING KONG (1933), TARZAN THE MAGNIFICENT (1960)
