This chapter discusses Gramma Angelita Garza, the author's grandmother, and looks at how she remembers her Mexican past. It begins with her story of watching the premiere matinee of A Romance of Normandy and A Circle of Love in the Amusu Theater. Here it is revealed that theaters during the early twentieth century had a separate section for “colored” patrons. The chapter provides Garza's biography, which is intertwined with a discussion of the development of movie houses and theaters.

Keywords:   Mexican past, Angelita Garza, colored patrons, movie houses, theaters, development
