I see the clock too. So the date on the photo had to be wrong, even though it was from the same grouping. I added it as post `57 photo as the Globe on the New York Theatre’s page. And removed it from here.

I added the color night time shot to the Photos section, in case the link goes dead.
The second film on the marquee “Sword Of The Avenger” was released in June `48.

Can you post a link to the theatre’s page that it should be on then? The New York Theatre at 1482 Broadway was not renamed the Globe until 57, and the photo is from55. And from the same photographer that the New York Theatre photo from the same year came from.

DavidZornig commented about OmniMax Theatre at Caesars Palace on Jan 26, 2018 at 7:55 pm

1980’s photo added. Copy courtesy of the Nevada Armored Transport, Inc. 1946-1984 Facebook page.

When the Omnimax Theater at Caesars Palace opened in 1979 it was a transport into sight and sound. Located on the north side of the property it almost looked like a huge golf ball. The Omnimax featured laid back seating with surround sound and an overhead screen encompassing the entire range of vision. Plagued from the beginning with leaks in the screen it still lasted nearly 21 years closing in 2000. Pictured in 1980 from the Caesars Palace Collection and shared via UNLV Libraries Digital Collections.
