Inside Pocahantas Theater
The theater opened in 1931. and could seat 1250 people. The theater was operational until 19?? when some low life set fire to it and robbed us of a historical site.

My first date was here. 12 maybe 13 years old. I walked cooly down to the front on the left side and sat down beside Linda Ogle (what ever happened to her). Slid my arm to the back of her seat never touching her, never saying a word. Nor did she. When the movie was over I got up and walked out. Man

It was the most beautiful theater that I have ever seen. I would move back to welch just to go to it again. 1963 was the last time that I had the pleasure of going to it. The day of the Triffids was playing that saturday.

I remember winning a shiny, new sled at a raffle that was held at the Pocahantas. I also remember going in on Sat. morning to find my Uncle Ernie at the Sock Hop while we were in town. I saw my first horror movie there: Dracula--only cost 10 cents admission price. Wonderful childhood memories!

I remember going to the Pocahontas when I was a child with my oldest brother to see The Sound of Music. Sadly, I watched it burn from my apartment window, it must have been 1980.

I remember making a trip down those dark stairs, at the far right of the lobby, to the "girls room" just to look at that tall BRAUTIFUL picture of Pocahontas! I would make that trip every time I went to the show, just to look at her. I thought she was sooooo beautiful!
