My Grandparents had a cottage on Lake Avalon that I spent most of my summers at until I was about 17 years old. I remember the posters on the wall inside the lobby and how just about anywhere in town you could pick up a schedule for the upcoming movies. As I recall, many of them were first run. I saw many many movies in that show. If we were lucky, we got my grandfather to drive us to town and then he would pick us up a half hour after the show so we could walk over to the Dairy Queen and get Ice Cream. The town of Hillman is very special to me from all the years I spent there. I haven't been there since about 1988 but I will always remember the town and especially the fun I had at the Hillman Theater. The bowling alley was right next door with a little restaurant and we would go and bowl once in a while too. One of my summer buddies was the Doc Olree (Richard). We also did a ton of water skiing too.
