We showed all the latest releases but the better sound quality went to the outer theaters. When they first opened. I was the only mgr to work both theaters. Staff was on separate payrolls.
Theater has closed and now has bingo hall, poker and Players Nightclub.
I saw Back to the Future (1985) last drive in movie before moving back to NH.
Work as a part time manager for Wood Theaters. They owned theaters in Madison and some other towns. worked there while working at Bell Labs in Whippany. Also worked at AMC Rockaway Inside/Outside Cinemas.
Worked as a Manager at both inside and outside part time. Was there when the outside first opened. Also there when 1st Raiders, Poltergeist and Altered States came out. William Hurt showed up. Good sound for that time. Inner theaters were not that great, but remember showing the late shows on Friday/Saturday (Rocky Horror, Eraserhead among others). Also the mess left behind after the Rocky Horror shows.
Remember when this was a twin cinema owned by General Cinemas. Saw my first James Bond film here ( Thunderball ).
Saw many movies here during late 60’s & early 70’s.
Remember seeing Woodstock, The Incredible two headed
transplant, The Dr. Phibes movies and plenty of AIP Corman pictures.
Saw Spaceballs here when it still ran first run films.
Also the only theater that showed Close Encounters in Dolby Sound in NH.
This Cinema opened in February 2004. I was the first general manager.
