CLIFTON — The historic Cliftex
Theatre, a fixture in downtown Clif-

This past weekend, an electrical
short caused the shutdown of an af-
ternoon matinee. Scott and Luann
Sandahl, owners of the theatre since
last July, were able to get patched
up enough to finish out the run of
the movie “Independence Day."
But, Luann Sandahl said, “To do
this right requires that we rewire the
place, and that will take some time.
We also have a leak under the con-
cession stand that we have been try-
ing to find a time to repair. It seems
like everything is pointing to an im-
mediate extended vacation."
Local movie patrons were enjoying
the most exciting part of this

concession stand wall.
“We all agreed it sounded like an
electrical jolt and there was a slight
smoky odor,” Sandahl said. “We
erred on the side of caution when we
realized that there was an electrical
problem. There were only a few min-
utes left in the movie and only seven
patrons, but safety is our first con-

and we offered them a refund. Most

With 10 minutes left until the
movie started, Scott Sandahl de-
clared that the show would go on.
Sixty customers arrived between 6:45
and 7 p.m., and there were no more

“This show has been running since
the 1920s, and we are very concerned
that it keep going,” Sandahl said.

THE OLD AND THE NEW - Ft. Hood's 1st Cavalry put its horses
through maneuvers while overhead the helicopter carried folks for a
bird’s-eye view of the barbecue events in Meridian. Though the land-
