AlanCanon commented about Showcase Cinemas Louisville on Nov 12, 2004 at 11:38 am

According to the Louisville Courier-Journal for Wednesday, September 08, 2004, The Showcase Cinemas opened in ‘1965 with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor in “The Sandpiper” and a Cinerama feature called “Halleluja Trail.”’ (“Showcase Cinemas: The end
Venerable complex closes Sunday night”)

Theatre 1 did indeed have a massive curved screen, probably outfitted for single-film Cinerama presentations. Hallelujah Trail qualifies: according to Martin Hart at, this film was done in MGM Camera 65, a.k.a. Ultra Panavision 70, shot on 65 mm and printed to 70 mm (to allow for the sound track.)
