We continue Who Cares If We’re Reaching Andy Griffith Auburn Connection Memorial Tuesday with movie listings from the July 30, 1958 issue of The Auburn Plainsman, specifically the ads for Griffith’s screwball classic No Time For Sergeants. If you haven’t seen it, as the saying goes, you’re doing it wrong.
Auburn students had several chances to do it right that week: July 30-31 at the Martin Drive-In in Opelika or the Aug. 1 Saturday Late Show (and the following Five Big Days) at The Tiger Theatre.
I bet Carol Meadows saw it.
For my AU graduation gift, my grandparents took me to Mt. Airy, Andy Griffith’s hometown and a loose template for Mayberry. We did the Hellooo? bit to a busted Dairy Queen intercom somewhere in Georgia. We still talk about it. We still laugh about it.

Hmm. “Colored Adults” got in cheaper at the Martin Theater in Opelika, but I’m guessing they probably didn’t get the best seats.
