I spent summers as a kid on the lake South of Minden so we went to the Beaver Theatre in town.
That place would have been closed when you were there I think.
We used to run up the river in our boats and tie up across the street from the Beer Store.
Did you go to the Rockliff? That was the landmark. T-shirts from that place were all over the world (my sister saw one in Europe)
kinda like Eskimo Joe's.
