Wasn''t the Della torn down in the mid-60s and replaced by a Genesee Bank drive-thru? In which case the status should note demolished rather than just closed.

I posted a photo of the Della on Flint Expatriates (www. flintexpats. com), a blog dedicated to the long-lost residents of Flint, Michigan, and got a great response. Here are the memories of a few readers:Mary: I have wonderful memories of the Della Theater on Welch Blvd. My dad would drop me and my friends off at the theater and come back after the double feature.

I felt sorry for the adults that attended those Saturday matinees. The kids were wild. It only cost 35 cents for two movies! Half the time I didn''t understand what was going on in second movie — usually a drama that was geared for adults. Yankeedp: In the Mid-1940s I went to the Della every Saturday and Sunday.

Some Saturdays you could get in by bringing 10 or 12 flattened tin cans to help the war effort. Held a girl''s hand for the first time there in 1944 or ''45. Ken: I went to the Della in ''44,''45,& ''46. I lived on Copeman Blvd.

and went to Civic Park school. At that time the Della cost. 10 cents and a bag of popcorn was. 05 cents.

That''s how we spent our Saturday afternoons. We rode our bikes. Can you imagine 500 bikes in front of the theater?.
