I saw “Raiders of the Lost Ark” here in 70MM in 1981. Those were the days…

Do any pictures exist of the Avco’s big screen before it was split?

I worked at the Tacoma Mall Twin Theatre when home from college for the summer of 1989. I grew up in Tacoma and in it’s day, this was THE place to see a big blockbuster movie. For the summer of ‘89 the theatre booked “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” in 70MM on Screen 1 with a 35MM print playing simultaniously on Screen 2 for a few weeks. Screen 2 filled out the rest of the summer with “Do The Right Thing” playing sold-out shows followed by “When Harry Met Sally”. The 70MM print of Indy was moved to the Tacoma South Cinemas and was replaced by “Parenthood”. Other notable engagements in 70MM: “The Empire Strikes Back”, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”, “2010”, “Clan of the Cave Bear”, “Young Sherlock Holmes”, “Top Gun”, and “Aliens”. Don’t ask me how I retained all this! QUESTION: DOES ANYONE OUT THERE HAVE PICTURES OF THE AUDITORIUMS? I would love to see them again…
