|The Old Ocean View Theater.
There were bombs, flak, rain, storms, and even no power. Cheers of appreciation and "Lets Go." There were laughs, sighs, and even soldiers have tears. There were old, old pictures, old pictures, and there must have been one new. So you saw it in the States but it was still something to do.
Now you are home and have to pay and even sit up. Just remember THE OLD OCEAN VIEW. What pleasures it gave we were proud to bring them to you.
The pictures above show the tents and screen of the old ocean view theater on Ie Shima in WW2. The top picture shows the projection room with the projection crew standing outside. The second picture shows the projection screen and a tent behind it. And the third picture shows the outdoor theater from behind the screen and the projection room in the background. I don't see any speakers in this outdoor theater so it may have shown silent movies. One thing that goes through my mind is that it would be great to bring back the modern version of the movie, "Pearl Harbor," these guys would have loved it.
