Received this message from the folks at the Craterian Theater, regarding when the Ginger Rogers name was changed.

Hello David, we had a celebration concert highlighting the name change on October 27, 2013.

Theater name should be changed to “Craterian Theater at The Collier Center for the Performing Arts”. Don’t know when this changed happened, but the one of the photos from their Facebook page I uploaded is from January 2015.

Sorry about the incorrect photo credit. I only credited the source I had, which was the person who posted it to Facebook. If you’d like, I can delete it and re-post it with proper credit.

This post with vintage photo & fade to today courtesy of the What Was There Facebook page.

On September 9, 1939, a secretive “sneak preview” of Gone with the Wind is shown to a surprised audience in Riverside, CA months before its official premier in Atlanta. The film’s producer, David O. Selznick, his wife, Irene, investor John “Jock” Whitney and film editor Hal Kern drove to Riverside to preview the film at the Fox Theatre. It was still a rough cut at this stage, missing completed titles and lacking special optical effects, and it ran for four hours and twenty-five minutes (it would later be cut down to under four hours for its proper release). A double bill of Hawaiian Nights and Beau Geste was playing at the Fox, but after the first feature it was announced that the theater would be screening a preview. The audience was informed they could leave but they would not be readmitted once the film had begun, nor would phone calls be allowed once the theater had been sealed. When the title appeared on the screen the audience cheered (many had been reading about the making of the film for over two years), and after it finished it received a standing ovation. Here’s the Fox Theater in 1929.
