it's the end of an era...sort of.
another relic of my childhood, down the tubes.
Movieland Wax Museum opened May 1962...same time i did. i remember it being a part of my summers....my mom, God bless her, would use an entire week of vacation taking me to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Japanese Village & Deer Park and Movieland.
last time i remember going was back in the 70's. i remember an attraction called The Black Box. don't remember for sure what all it entailed, but the commercial always made me laugh...it was a girl named Rosemary Kabbibbe and the tag line was "The lights are on, but nobody's home."
oh for the memories.
B wanted to go on Sunday, but the line to buy tickets was going around the building. i don't think so. so we shot for Monday, which was better.
it was still crowded, but not as bad as Sunday would've been. took about 2 hrs to go through the entire exhibits. took pictures of every single figure...
made me sad. not that this was such a killer attraction, and if you saw some of the figures, oy.
you could tell that some were 43 years old. dang. i looked better than some of 'em. i guess i'm sad because i just feel old. places i wanted to show my niece & nephew are gone or going.
but every generation has to have their Sacred Places, i guess. one day, some generations will mourn the loss of Vans' Skate Park.
