6/28/2022 - George Linington
My father William Linington, was a relief projectionist and worked occasionally at the Capitol Theatre in Utica. One night in 1947 or 8 I accompanied him to work, watched the first show then went to sleep downstairs in one of the seats. This was something I did now and again at various theaters, I was 10 or 11, when the show was over he would wake me and we would drive home. We lived just outside of Mount Clemens. This evening he forgot and I had accompanied him and he and the manager shut off all the lights closed the theater and proceeded to go home. About halfway home my father remembered about me, contacted the manager and they both returned turn on the lights and found me. My father woke me and we proceeded home. It was only later that II was told what really happened that night. Since that time I have wondered how I would’ve reacted had I woke up in the pitch black theater. occasionally at the Capitol theater in Eureka
