More than 500 persons turned out to see the first Sunday movie in Decatur in 7 years.
The film was Walt Disney's "So Dear to My Heart." The Decatur City Commission lifted the
ban on Sunday movies more than a week ago, but owner Fred Storey decided to open for
Sunday audiences with the Disney picture. Sunday movies have been prohibited in Decatur
for more than 18 years. For a brief period in 1957 the ban was lifted.
