Recalling the Ginza

Jun 19, 2019

To the Editor:

A great Beachcomber issue (Summer 2019, History Edition); however, Rick Mellerup incorrectly identified the psychedelic shop at the Colony Theatre in Brant Beach as “18 Steps Up.”

The shop was called Ginza and was in existence until about 1977. The Colony Theatre went to a four-screen format circa 1978, which eliminated all of the second floor apartments and the Ginza!

Editor’s Note: Good catch, Charlie. Rick must have had a “’60s moment” when he wrote down this info from a 1969 Beachcomber ad.
