Fred – I’m not sure how to answer that. As a kid I simply started writing down the bookings each week (and have several more theaters still to post)in the 70’s. As a teen I used to go to the library and one day found old newspapers and started going backwards until I got to 1964 and then I stopped going. Since you are in KC going to the library is not an option. Outside of that I can’t think of any other way since you can’t find it on the Internet (that I know of). Thanks for your kind words and look for my other listings as I post them. And good luck in your search. Should you ever find them make sure to post them!!

Archives – FUNNY GIRL played at the United Artists (check out the film schedule I have listed there as well).

Mike – With the exception of some obvious re-release double and triple features, the movies that played the Chicago were first run. Up until the mid 70’s it was almost always an exclusive engagement as well and there were even a few in the mid to late 70’s as well but the exclusive runs were phased out by studios who saw the chance to make a bigger profit by opening it simultaneously on screens in the suburbs as well.

When I was a kid I used to keep track of the films that played at all the theaters in Northwest Indiana and River Oaks, which was just over the state line. I also did the same for the palaces downtown. I wish I knew of an easy way to get hold of the list you want Cinemark but the only thing I could guess would be going to the library and looking it up week by week, year by year.

I have the bookings of the Esquire from 1963-1980 so I looked it up. The picture with “The Gambler” on the marquee would have been taken between 10/18 and 11/7, 1974.

Incidentally, the Loews theater that is mentioned above is also still standing but is now a church. The two box office booths are still in place though curtains cover both of them.

JRS40 commented about Lafayette Square Cinema on Jun 4, 2006 at 2:24 pm

I was in Indianapolis this weekend and went by this theater. The stand alone theater does have a bridge you need to cross to get into the absolutely huge parking lot which now has grass growing over it. The sign in the rear states that these were Cinemas 3-4-5 which means Cinemas 1-2 were in the mall. The General Cinema logo is still on the front wall and except for some graffiti the building is in great shape. The boards on the doors and windows don’t appear to have been tampered with and there are locks on the back exit doors. There is also a cloth sign still on the wall promoting midnight movies every weekend “For people who want to do anything but sleep”.

JRS40 commented about UA Cinema on Apr 27, 2006 at 8:23 pm

Bob, I don’t know for sure if either THE BIBLE or PATTON played the UA Cinema but I know for a fact (I have the bookings for River Oaks 1 from the day it opened in 1969-1981) that neither played at River Oaks. I also have the bookings for the UA Cinema from 71-79 so there is a chance that PATTON could have played there but I would guess THE BIBLE probably didn’t. Also just to correct something in the top description, the theater was twinned in 1972. The second screen opened December 22 with the premiere attraction of “Sleuth” (FYI – The Christmas movie in theater 1 that year was “Young Winston”).

JRS40 commented about River Oaks 6 on Feb 9, 2006 at 10:59 pm

Some of the movies I saw in the 1-6 building include “Home Alone”, “A League of Their Own”, “Sense and Sensibility”, “My Cousin Vinny”, “Henry and June” and “City Slickers 2”.

JRS40 commented about Southlake Cinema on Jan 17, 2006 at 1:15 pm

Southlake Cinema closed its doors after evening showings on Sunday the 15th of this month. Other then a small mention in the paper and the marquee, which this last weekend read: Thanks for 27 Great Years, there was little fanfare. Back in the early 80’s Southlake was GCC’s highest grossing theater in the country. Having worked there for 4 years I saw many a movie there including “Superman”, “An Officer and A Gentleman”, “Ghost Story”, “The Shining”, “1941”, “Porky’s”, “Blue Thunder”, “Ghostbusters”, “The Thing” and the list goes on and on. Apparently the cinema is going to be torn down as Kerasotes is building a new mulitplex down the road withing the property of the mall (now known as Westfield). At least two restaurants will be built on the site of the former theater with an indoor walkway connected to the new theaters.

JRS40 commented about Dunes Cinema 1 & 2 on Jan 3, 2006 at 8:30 am

The Dunes was in a rougher area then the other two GCC twins (Ridge Plaza and Crossroads) so this was the place where the action films, blaxploitation films and horror films usually ended up. The Dunes also played first run films and Disney to appeal to everyone but the theatre was sort of branded with the rough image. It was unusual for a film to play more then a week or two and there was almost always a film change on one of its screens weekly. The theatres themselves were nothing special but not bad. I didn’t go there often as usually the films they played were playing at one of the other two theatres which were closer to home for me when I was growing up. Some of the films I saw there included: “The Man with the Golden Gun”, “Lepke”, “The Car”, “The Domino Principle”, “The Cat From Outer Space”, “Gus”, “The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training”, “Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo”, “When A Stranger Calls”, “Brass Target”, “The Black Hole”, “Crossed Swords”, “Family Plot” and “Night of the Juggler”.

JRS40 commented about Crossroads Cinema on Jan 3, 2006 at 8:21 am

The Crossroads was one of 3 area twins (the others being Ridge Plaza and Dunes Plaza) GCC opened in Northwest Indiana. Crossroads was home to many of my moviegoing experiences when I was growing up including: “Executive Action”, “The Seven Ups”, “The Four Musketeers”, “Lenny”, “The Reincarnation of Peter Proud”, “Airport 1975”, “The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3”, “Murder By Death”, “Oh God”, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and the list goes on and on. It was a nice place to visit and I hear the place has been done up some and looks pretty good these days. Sadly it is the only one of the 3 original theatres still left as the Ridge has been demolished and the Dunes sits in decaying ruins.
