[QUOTE=Rich93;2605797]After The Hustler came out in 1961, a lot of new rooms opened up. They always had Gold Crowns and carpets on the floor, were bright and sunny, and often had colorful cloth on the tables - not the usual green. These were usually called family billiard centers and the hope was that Dad, Mom, Buddy and Sis would all be playing pocket billiards together. As a rule, these rooms didn't last long.





The "Cue & Cushion" rooms in Phila were absolutely beautiful. All GoldCrowns and Brunswick accessories. Had gold cloths. I always loved the look of the GC with a gold cloth and that's what I currently have.
