Dixie brings back old memories
For several years, I have had the pleasure of singing at the Joe Woods Wildwood Express Reunion, annually, at the Dixie Theater. Every time I walk through the front door of the old building and down those two side aisles, it’s like a stroll back in time.
Saturday nights in Ruston, in the 1960s, were reserved for open-face hamburgers at Hoods Barbecue and the “preview” at the Dixie.
The “preview” was the first showing of each new movie that would appear the next week, at the theater.
