43 years ago today – a life-changing event. I saw “2001” at the Capitol. I try to commemorate it every year here on this page.
This compilation of reviews was given out free to all patrons. September 1978.
Early 1972. I was 17. I remember how nervous I was, pacing around this lobby, as I was soon about to be let in to see my first X-rated movie, “A Clockwork Orange”.
I saw “Nashville” here in 1975. One of the greatest movie experiences I’ve ever had. I sat up close, so the Panavision image was quite large in this relatively small theater.
The year was 1996.
The year is 1963. Notice the date of the How the West Was Won premiere. It’s a safe bet this premiere never happened – not on that night, anyway.
I think this picture dates from 2001 because I saw Yes here on a Saturday night. 3 days later, on Tuesday, 9/11 happened.
Program for the 1970 Easter show, “Airport”, from March 1970.
Program for the 1969 Christmas show, “A Boy Named Charlie Brown”, from January 1970.
Program for “Fantasia” from June 1978.
Program for “North by Northwest” from August 1959.
Program for “The Nun’s Story” from July 1959.
Program for “Barefoot in the Park” from August 1967.
Program for “The Out-of-Towners” from July 1970.
Program for “Butterflies are Free” from August 1972.
This is a program I got at Cinestudio when I saw “2001” there in 70mm in February 2002.
It was so hot in the Dome that night, the icing on the cake was melting, as you can see. I thought I might get a piece of this cake, but no. Must’ve been for VIPs only.
Saps: I’ve always loved the Ziegfeld, but I always thought an actual 146-degree curved Cinerama screen would fit perfectly in that space.
A member named Rory sent me this photo a few years ago. I know he’ll be happy to see it posted here.
Three tiny lenses produce one of the biggest motion picture images ever.

Vito, Sonny, … if your next two posts are labeled Michael and Fredo, someone is pulling a prank on you :)
Vito: the new site gives us the ability to remove our own posts. Maybe this explains the 5 missing posts. Tinseltoes may have deleted them himself.
I wonder where they got Sonny from? The name I first entered as my username back in 2003, BillHuelbig, also comes up in every one of my posts now.
