The Palace Theatre in Belize City, long ago...

I used to go there often. Also used to sell pepitos at matinee - one cent per match box full.

In my time, pepitos was 2 cents for a matchbox full and 25 cents for a potted meat can full.

These were lovely times! I recall that...pepitos in matchbox! WHO was so inventive to take that as a good measure to sell at an economical price of $.01 or $.02....So HAPPY that I got to experience those times!!!!!

The infamous Palace theater where Casanova with his whip was stationed by the ticket line (on the right side) to keep us in line with a swath in the general direction of the line to tighten it up. I used to get mad at that dude when he did that...Sort of humorous now, but being a hot-head when I was a youngster, I am glad guns were not popular as they are today......LMAO!

Right on brother palace theather my sister use to take me every weekend to watch a movie sometimes you fell asleep before the movie finish but fun memories. They use to get free ticket from the tea they drank in those days. Brookbond tea was the special then. Lol

Mr. Titos is in the pic sitting on a bucket... he used to sell plantain chips which was the best back then.

One of the four theaters in the city at that time.. It was on Albert street. Right now Mikados is where the theater used to be. The famous Bata shoe store was right across from it.

what I remember most is that all the out side band held their concert there like Byron Lee Sonny Bradshaw Ken Lazarus all the concert use to be there international and local artist at one of the show Sefferino Cole mom came out in a big diaper those were the good day the build was renovated and the Mikado store is there at this moment it was one out of four theaters the only one on the south side.

My Love for watching movies on the big screen came from watching movies at these theaters (Palace, Majestic, Eden and Belrio) I recalled going to the Palace the most with my parents. Not sue if it was because it showed the best movies. Saw many of the James Bond movies there. Does anybody remember the Terence Hill and Bud Spencer Moives? You can see them on youtube now. Some how they are not as funny as they were then though.
