Is the false front still there? Next time I drive into western Kansas, I’ll have to check. Here’s the Sherman in 1989:

kpdennis commented about Redding 4 on Apr 25, 2009 at 12:25 am

It’s actually spelled with only one “R” – should be Reding 4. Here’s a photo from the mid-90s, when a country music live show placed their logo over the “4” in the sign.

For a few years, this was OKC’s highest grossing theater, even though it was located on the economically lesser south side of town. A photo of the Almonte from the mid-1990s:

Glad to see this venue is alive and well – because the marquee told a different story in this photo taken circa 1991.

kpdennis commented about Heritage Plaza 5 on Apr 22, 2009 at 1:03 pm

I must also mention – I met my wife Carol while managing this theater. She was the friend of a lady whose niece worked for me at the Heritage 5. They came to see Robocop, but Carol came out to the lobby because she didn’t like the violence. We had gone to high school together, but didn’t know each other during those days. We talked a bit, and started dating shortly afterwards.

That was 1986, and we’ve been together ever since.
