Re: “The Old-Name Game: Santa Rosa's Disappearing Landscape

These photos bring back memories. I lived in Santa Rosa most of my life. As a child, I lived on Montgomery Dr. almost directly across from the Village drive-in theater. I would climb on top of my roof and watch the movie on the screen. Unfortunately I couldn't hear it, but I had a great view. I also remember the El Rancho Tropicana. The star on the top of the sign that continuously flashed bigger and smaller at night was awesome! There was also a business called the Grotto. It had a big yellow light on top of the sign that would flash on and off. There was a roller skating rink on Santa Rosa Ave. too. It had a wooden rink and skates with metal wheels. As an adult, I patronized "Everybody's Talking" more than a few times, as well as an adult book store once in a while. A Mexico restaurant called the Mazatlan was a place I went with my family quite often. I remember going to the Redwood drive-in theater as a child with my Aunt and cousin to see the Beatles movie "Help". Later on, the X- Rated drive-in Sonomarin theater with my cousins. Teensge stuff lol. The memories just come flooding back. Way too many to mention here. By far, the best memories are spending time with my own children in Santa Rosa. A beautiful town!
