I saw Bonnie and Clyde there when it premiered in Atlanta. Although I grew up in Sandy Springs, that was the only time I ever went to that theater.
As I indicated above, my Dad took me to see “How the West Was Won” during its opening run at the Martin’s Cinerama downtown. I believe that “The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm” — which my Dad also took me to seee — also did its opening run at Martin’s downtown.
What an elegant and fantastic movie theater that was. I do not know of a movie theater currently in Atlanta that rivals it except for the Fox, which rarely if ever shows movies anymore.
My dad took me to Martin’s Cinerama in Atlanta several times when I was a young child. I clearly remember going to see “How the West Was Won” and “The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm.” The huge screen with the curtain and the elegant setting in general were marvelous. My dad pointed out the three projectors to me and briefly explained how the Cinerama process worked.
I do not remember whether it was the downtown Atlanta or the North Druid Hills Road location that my dad took me to. Based on the information I have provided, can anyone tell me which theater it was I went to?
