markp… Thanks, but I desire more precise information. If anything, what interests me is how many screens did the Commack Multiplex have during the summer of 1992?

(from the overview) “It opened on October 28, 1983 with ten screens. Four screens with 512 seats and the other six with 364 seats. The theatre then added two 226 seat houses, split one of the 512-seaters in half, then added two 250 seaters for the current total of fifteen.”

Does anyone know the years in which the many screen/auditorium additions were made?

moviebuff82: In your comment from January 10th you stated “Pink Floyd: The Wall” played here in 70mm, but now in your May 4th comment you’re stating it didn’t play here in 70mm. So which is it???

HowardBHaas… I believe you’re mistaken about the Keswick. A 3-projector run of “Windjammer” is cited in the Showcase Presentations in Philadelphia article if you want playdate details.

I’d like to pass along the link to a recent retrospective article on the original “Rocky” movie which many of you may recall opened exclusively here. Sorry, I meant to post link a while ago when it first published. Anyway, this and many other cinemas are cited in the article along with details on longest run, box-office data, and a historian Q&A.

I’d like to pass along the link to a reference list of the 70mm engagements of “Logan’s Run” (1976). The article includes mention of the run here at the Cinema Grossmont and as well mentions the San Diego sneak preview screening asked about a few comments ago.

Scott Neff… That 10/21/1965 date was for the opening of the Continental in Oklahoma City.

davegkuhn… The Southroads Mall opening of “Star Wars” was June 24th, 1977 (not in May).

Coate commented about Brookgate Movies on Nov 6, 2016 at 6:28 pm

dave-bronx…. The original “Star Wars” played at Brookgate second run, so it’s almost certainly not the answer to the question of which big movie played interlocked on all five of the Brookgate’s screens.

JodarMovieFan: Per your comment of July 11th… I’m not likely to thank Cinema Treasures generically in my articles since I don’t consider it a source, per se (it’s certainly not a primary source). I would have included you in the article’s special thanks if you posted under your real name. Other Cinema Treasures contributors were thanked in the article. Email me….
