I understand Bill Gates donated a significant amount of money to this theater. He attended this theater as a child.
The screen was pretty big.
The marquee when it was called the Warners Theater is absolutely amazing.
The murals painted on the walls of the lobby are absolutely stunning!
This old platter was converted with a retrofit kit to use Strong platter drop-in removable control plates.
Big screen television projection kills another theater. :(
The studios/distributors still will be making 35mm prints for foreign distribution.
Looks like they had SPECO “CBX” in-car speakers.
I wonder if the D. Moseley is related to the projectionist Earl Moseley who wrote the autobiography, “The Reel Mose” about 20 years ago? Earl worked drive-ins and indoor theaters as projectionist.
Originally built and operated by Dale and Rose Nye in 1982.
The ORC lamphouse was replaced in 1999 with a Strong Super Lume-x running 2,000 watt bulbs.
The Christie AW2 platter was replaced in 1997 with a Strong miniature 5 deck platter in the small house.
The christie AW2 platter was replaced with a Strong 3 deck microswitch platter in 1997. The ORC lamphouse was replaced with a Strong Super Lume-x running 2,000 watt bulbs back in 1999.
Screen tower was all wood construction with telephone poles as the main support. The picture area was 40 feet by 94 feet with a flat black masking border painted on it. The tower did not angle toward the ramps. It was straight. The face of the picture area was all asbestos tiles.
Pictures of the new marquee (both lighted and unlighted) are on the theater’s facebook page:
They are converting to digital video projectors right now.
I’ve added several pictures I took of the theater in 1999.
I just added a couple of pictures I took of the front of theater in 1999.
I added a couple of my own pictures I took around 1999 back when it was run by AMC Theatres and had Union projectionists.
The auditorium is small. They should just buy a good quality consumer video projector and blu-ray DVD player.
Galaxy also operates the Narrows Plaza 8 in Tacoma, Washington. They moved into that theater after closing the Tacoma Central just two miles down the road. Just west over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, Galaxy operates the Uptown 10 Theatres in Gig Harbor. Cinematreasures needs to add those theaters.
I’ve worked at the Fox in the past.
There is a picture of the new marquee still on the back of a flatbed truck on the theater’s Facebook page now. It looks great!
On Friday December 7, 2012 at 5:30 pm the brand new marquee will be revealed and lit up.
Video arcades are dead. Miniature golf is dead. They won’t make any money with those.
