Saw the first public sneak preview of “Spartacus” here in 1960. Kirk Douglas, Tony and Janet Leigh-Curtis attended. I had never seen such a small waist on a female in my life! It still holds the record! (the waist, not the “sneak”)
This was the Cinemascope palace. Saw “The Robe” and all subsequent Fox flicks of the ‘50s although occasionally one would materialize at the nearby Hibiya (3 Coins in the Fountain)
Saw “The Black Swan”, “Show Boat”, “3 Coins In The Fountain”, and “Drum Beat” here in the ‘50s.
the 4 Star is a 3 screener – brings to mind that line about not going to a theatre where the bathrooms are bigger than the auditoria. Lease runs thru 2005 – property purchased by Canaan Lutheran Church, SF for their new sanctuary.
