The first time I saw Gone With the Wind was here in the late 70s/early 80s, with a wretched 70mm print that cropped the image at the top and bottom and seemed to be terrbily out of focus, even after changing my seat several times and complaining to the manager (who stated that was because of the curved screen!)

I couldn’t believe that this was the number one box office attraction of all time. I was really disappointed, until I saw it again years later in the proper ratio and clarity. Of course it’s magnificent.

Tova, I hope you check the site from time to time to share some memories of your grandparents. I was really quite fond of them, happy to share my experiences with you

Screen sizes, however, seem to remain the same.

New doors, really…?

That auditorium looks so wide; how was it divided for the triplex, and then where were the other two added screens?

There are Orpheum theaters coast to coast, I’m not sure this is the little one on Second Avenue…

Donald, watch this episode of Undercover Boss and then call the mayor. She wants to improve Gary; share your ideas with her.

There’s an extremely quick shot of the vintage marquee in the recent Undercover Boss set in Gary, at about the six minute mark.

So, is this place start of the art, or a fading dump?

Orlando, you’re one of the few voices here that I trust, so this does seem like very promising news.

I wonder what was to become of the theater already in that shopping center, i.e., AIT’s Mayfair which apparently lasted until 1984.

hdtv267 is not the annoying one here, although his responding to every asinine post can get a little tiring.

This is not a blog about current attractions, ticket sales, etc. Please find somewhere else to discuss those matters…

Excerpt from the NY Times review dated April 26, 1941:

The Rialto is following tradition this week in celebrating a quarter of a century of purveying movies to the public with a new screen-and-squeal item, “The Black Cat,” a comedy thriller suggested by a Poe short story…
