July 24th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1976, “Grandma’s Candy Store” was shown twice in the afternoon at the Bay Theatre.  According to the Today’s Calendar section in the Los Angeles Times, the film was a documentary about the Seal Beach old town candy store.

I’ve never heard of this film and haven’t found any other information about it. (There’s a slight possibility that it was a segment from a non-fiction children’s show) Does anyone remember this? I’d love to hunt this down.

    I’m trying to hunt down the possibility that it was a segment for a KNBC children’s show called, “That’s Cat.” They broadcasted a segment called, “A Trip to Grandma’s Candy Store” on September 8, 1977. Was it our Grandma’s Candy Store? No way of knowing now, but hunting it down is on my long (very long) list of Seal Beach to-dos.
