I love downtown Encinitas. I love the La Paloma theater. I saw my first big screen movie there when I was 4. It was the original 1933 King Kong. They were showing it as a double feature with a big summer surf movie that the entire surf community came out to see. It was a rowdy crowd. In King Kong the explorers open fire on a giant Stegosaurus. "DON'T SHOOT!" I yelled out, "HE'S A PLANT EATER!"
