I used to work at the Outer 6 for several years. Both theaters were 35mm projectors. I cannot remember the make, but I believe they were Italian projectors bought in the 70s.

Outer 6 theaters had 6 screens naturally. 2 @ 180 seats, 2 @ 300 seats and 2 @ 335 seats (approx).

One screen, #6 had Dolby Digital and Sony’s SDDS. The rest of the screens had SDDS only (in addition to the analog sound).

The concession stand was redone around 1994 from its original design to the design that was used up until the theater’s final day of operation: July 28, 2002.

The tile that was in the back of the concession stand was the dark brown “brick” style that used to cover the entire floor of the Rockaway Mall (prior to its renovation sometime in the late 80s or early 90s I believe).

This dark brown tile can still be seen at the Pet Store in the Rockaway Mall, downstairs by Sears infront of “Pet-Pourri.”
