Remember way back in the day when Park Rapids had two different movie theatres? 

The Park and the Royal.

    Its interesting how the old ‘in town’ movie theaters were “re-purposed” (or sadly, torn down). In my home town, I recall going to the movies shown in the ‘in town’ theater as a young boy – it is now the home of performing arts – and various groups put on plays and musicals.

    I remember going to “the show” at the Royal Theater when I was a child….if I remember correctly, it seemed that they played the “B-movies,” not the big hit movies. Those were shown at the Park instead. I remember going to the Royal for Saturday matinees mostly. Gone are the days…
