I finally dug out and scanned some pics of the Columbia from a night it hosted a live bodybuilding show.
Marquee shot from across Broadway
The outer lobby display cases
The imortal yellow wall
I have opening night of La Bamba pics which i will scan and post when I locate them.
I think I saw Zoot Suit at the Rivoli, not sure if they ran it in 70mm.
Go back to 100 foot screens to overwhelm people. The ways movies should be seen.
I have loads of pictures of the Haven I just need to find time to scan them.
The type of 1970’s feature that AlAlvarez talks about 2 posts up
Alan Ladd on screen and Miss Peggy Lee on stage
My prayers are with you.
Does India still use 70mm on a regular basis?
Disney at the Music Hall
The glory days
A great 50’s double bill
Here is another shot
These psuedo IMAX screens are cheapening the format. When will anyone realize they need to once again give the public something that home TV (even the large ones) can’t duplicate. Theatre screens need to be huge curved ones like in the 50’s and 60’s.

What a travesty we lost this theatre :(
Have been going here all my life since it was a Walter Reade art house. Used to have a beautiful waterfall curtain as a single screen.

December 1970, I wonder what the prize was? :)
Here is a double bill that played the Kings December 1969. Elvis was at the very end of his movie career.
Remember when theatres would throw in re-issue garbage like this in early December right before they opened their holiday attractions?
Another re-issue for Christmas 1971
