Salem Cinema owner Loretta Miles.

This is part of a weekly series introducing readers to individuals who are passionate about our Mid-Valley community.

Loretta Miles’ father, Keith, was going deep sea fishing with a couple of guys he met on a job he was working on.

It was 1970 and Keith was a welder and machinist who was working on logging trucks in the around Newport and rivers in the Oregon Coast range.

Her father “begged” 12-year-old Loretta to go with them. “I was too cool to go fishing with three old men,” she said.

The job he was working on was the filming of “Sometimes a Great Notion,” and her father’s new friends were Paul Newman and Henry Fonda.
