Neon sign at the Don Theater, located at 710 Bolton Avenue in Alexandria, Louisiana

Once you were finished shopping along Bolton Avenue, you might want to catch the latest picture show at the Don Theater. Or maybe you would just ride your bike a few blocks, and leave it out front, unlocked.

Sure, it had only one screen, not 16 like those giant new mega-theaters do.

But what a great time it was at the "Pack of Fun Club", even with the 15 cents admission charge!

The Don Theater was located at 710 Bolton Avenue between Jackson Street and Marye Street. Closed for many years, it has slipped into a state of disrepair.

To the right of the Don was the A&P Food Store, and to the left Morgan & Lindsey.
