The first day, 450 people watched movies at the new theater - on the second day, more than 1500 people stood in line to get in.

1966 - At the age of 61 years old, Andrew was alive when on September 8th, the first Star Trek episode, "The Man Trap," was broadcast on NBC. The plot concerned a creature that sucked salt from human bodies. The original series only aired for 3 seasons due to low ratings.
