I started there as an usher about 1949. I advanced to the guy who makes the popcorn and changed that marquee whenever the movie changed. The winters were very challenging! A man named Jack Noirot was my manager at that time. I was there for about two years. A young lady named Beverly Gelinas was our cashier for a year and then Joan Winter came after her.

The West Branch Cinema is the former MidState Theatre. It is now with 3 screens; main auditorium, the balcony, and an auditorium next door.

The Mid-State dates back to the early 1940s at least, as the ad indicates.
