In April of 1993, when they re-opened after a long closure, refurbished and with additional screens, they were a discount house. The first day…they were charging only 50 cents per film. I saw Forever Young and * Body of Evidence* for 50 cents each. Needless to say, there were long lines.

this place needs a major overhaul- the marquee needs to be replaced-doesn’t anyone know how to spell- National Amusements needs to spend some $ or is it a write off for them.

Funny, but I too saw “Desperate Characters” there in December of 1970, according to my film-viewing log.

That’s an accurate description of the theater, Gerald, which explains why I hardly ever went there to see movies. The only occasion that comes to mind was to see “Desperate Characters,” an obscure film with Shirley MacLaine, early seventies, I think.

I have been coming to this place for over 35 years, frequently but not religiously, because it is a short drive from where I live. There is no magic here. The place has no real character, just a bunch of nondescript screening rooms built around a concession stand, and hardly any lobby. It is a tad bit spiffier since they put in new seats a while ago. I had a bad experience with CHICAGO here a while back. The auditorium where it was being screened had the most awful tinny sound imaginable, which could ruin a musical like that one.
