Skull Rock, theme parks, and Fullerton events

Spooky Skull Rock has long since disappeared from Disneyland, but naturally, you can still find it in Yesterland. It was built next to Captain Hook's Pirate Ship in 1960 and was removed during the 1982 remodeling of Fantasyland.
Less Halloween-ish, but still cool, Gorillas Don't Blog has posted a series of View-Master slides depicting Disneyland's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea walk-through exhibit from 1955.
Also, Stuff From The Park has posted a great series of 1968 photos from the old Japanese Village & Deer Park in Buena Park. Really impressive, rare stuff.

The Fox Fullerton Theatre will hold a volunteer work party on Oct. 20, to help prepare the historic building for reconstruction. Then, on the 25th, they'll show Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" on the side of the theatre.

The Fullerton Railway Plaza Association's fall newsletter is now available online. This organization is dedicated to building and maintaining a permanent railroad attraction in Downtown Fullerton. They will also show one of my favorite movies, Buster Keaton's "The General," on Oct. 27 at 6:30pm, in the Fullerton Museum Center Auditorium.
