The Christie projectors are only worth $10.00 each. High class junk is all they are.

I hope this catches on all over the Country, make your calls before entering the Theatre, not in the middle of the movie. Stop thinking about yourself and learn to respect others around you.

Digital is a very dirty word, don’t go there if you run 35mm right you will have no major problems.

I am glad it is a church and not a parking lot, like so many others have become.

This theatre was run by Dave & Henry Keffer, Dave also owned the Rainbow Roller Rink on the Carlise Pike outside of Mechanicsburg, Pa.He later had the roller rink on Derry Street in Harrisburg, Pa. He also had the Paxtang Theatre. He always had his favorite hobby as a sound tech.

You need to get your facts straight, It ran until 69 and was run by Walter S. Finch Jr.This is where I learned to run movies from Walt’s brother Claude Finch. I was there till the end, may have even been early 70’s.

Nowadays they can’t even use thier imagination for anything. All they can seem to do is remakes of other peoples ideas.Also they love this stupid digital b.s. because it puts quality projectionist like myself out of work.

I don’t agree with longislandmovies on a few points. This time he is right, my family has been in the theatre business for years, and not once were we charged a percentage on concessions, that is where we all make our money.

carolgrau commented about Proctor's rally today on Sep 5, 2009 at 9:54 pm

They don’t care if it’s the most beautiful theatre ever built, if they want it gone, it’s gone. At least it wont be a parking lot. Seems funny nobody has a job yet they want office and retail space. Join the long list of beautiful theatres to bite the dust. Damn shame is what it is.

I was the last projectionist to have the honor of working this beauty on it’s last showing. No it was not divided it closed as a single screen theatre balcony and all was intact.God how I miss this place. Many wonderfull years there.

carolgrau commented about Palmyra's only cinema closes on Aug 20, 2009 at 9:51 pm

This theatre was run by the Troutman family, the same people who ran the Capitol theatre in Bloomsburg, Pa. into the ground. I did help with the installation of the cinema center but they just don’t care. You can’t charge $5.00 a hotdog in Central Pa. just because that is what they pay in New York,, they tried it guess what it failed. I feel sorry for the people nice area.

carolgrau commented about Cameron, Jackson discuss future of film on Aug 2, 2009 at 3:59 pm

Just like the demand for cineramma, and 70mm, that’s really popular now. Just another soon to fade away fad, it wont last.

carolgrau commented about Benedum Center for the Performing Arts on Jul 18, 2009 at 10:24 pm

The old projection booth was like walking up the stairway to heaven, I don’t ever recall a theatre that had that many steps. The booth had a shower in it because in the early days the projectionist’s were given the choice of a elavator or a shower, they took the latter.I used to run alot of the rock movies there once in awhile as a relief projectionist.
