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.

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.

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.
