Update: The ZIP for the Galaxy is 48071. When I-696 was built in the early-mid 70s, there were times you could see the movie speeding by! (Waterwinterwonderland.com/Keith 1/3/07)

Update: We lived on East Dallas growing up and everyone went to the Galaxy. Many times we would stand in the middle of dallas to see what was playing. I grew up in the 70''s. It was a sad day when they closed. (Waterwinterwonderland.com/Kathy 12/29/08)
