Dunkirk Industrial Moments

Point Gratiot...everyone's favorite

A Look Back

 



Make sure you sit in every other seat...

and no talking to your neighbor!

 


The BEST Parties of all were the Friday Night Party's at Point Gratiot!

A couple kegs of beer...the whole place to ourselves...and several hundred of your friends! These were as good as things ever got!

I also remember the times we had a Keg of beer at "The Point" during the winter...it was freezing but at least we were drinking beer without the police bothering us (the Cops had much more sense)...but we were having fun freezing our "Buns" off drinking beer in one of the "Shelters" that provided absolutely no protection whatsoever from those freezing winds off Lake Erie but at least if it started to rain..."we were protected"!

Anyone remember the paintings on the wall of BJs tavern in Fredonia...before they covered them up...it was of Jethro Tull...How about the painting at Charlie's Old Timer of the Last Supper...with the Marx Brothers and the 3 stooges?...I remember the night Martin Luther King was Gunned down was the same night of the big rain storm that swept thru Dunkirk...causing the roof of the Capital Theater to collaspe..

....I remember when we were kids we would all chip in a few cents to pay for Joey Russo and Jeff O'Connell to get into the Capital theater...Jeff would distract the manager Mr Tallman and Joey would open the "fire doors" out backand let the rest of the gang in...and we would all scatter...Mr Tallman would give chase but he has emysema and would tire quickly...he'd catch 1 or 2 of us and we would stage the whole thing over until we were all in...I also remember the Balcony was always closed...but a GREAT Place to hide and watch movies all day upstairs if Mr Tallman was looking for us downstairs...and those stairs were so sqeaky that it would give us lots of time to hide if he came looking for us!

I also remember the floor at the Capital Theater was always so sticky! If you left your feet in one place too long you had to tug your shoes to get them free! But we saw so many wonderful movies there growing up!
