California First Theater - Monterey, California
One thing I've learned about my grandmother, Loraine Gunzendorfer, is that she loved to go out, especially to the theater. And she's even left me some programs and descriptions about what she saw.
Sunday - Sept 6 - 1914 - Bryan and Gene came from Hollister to stay a week or so - In the afternoon we went for ride to Grove - After I obtained the above - Then we all - Hallie, Bryan, Gene & I went to the Monterey Theatre where I got ------->
See where she wrote this with the arrow?
Wikipedia describes this as a silent movie from 1914 set in the period of the Second Punic War (218-202 B.C.).
From the looks of the inside of the program this seems about right.
Here's a few other programs.
|A wonderful play - comedy|
enjoyed it every minute
I don't think she cared for this one as much.
Margaret, Hallie, Elfie, Helen, Mary and I were asked to usher for "The Hazard of the King." It was quite a good production, scenery, costumes, etc. but play wasn't much.
It's funny how seeing things she wrote nearly 100 years ago brings back a memory for me. I remember when she didn't like something much she'd say "I couldn't give it much".
How I wish she were here to tell me about these plays!
