Twenty-five cent haircuts. Twenty Five cents for a movie, and a double feature at that. And they didn't clear the theater out after the show was over, you could stay in the theater all day.

Oh, yeah, there were cartoons, 5 at least, before the double feature.

There was only one screen per theater, but every town had one. And the movies changed weekly.

This was in the late 50's - early 60's.
