I know the picture had an exclusive run at Walter Reade’s Baronet/Coronet Theatre in NYC and ran there for an entire year.
I suggest getting pictures of the theatre in 1967

I used to be Manager of the Baronet/Coronet in the late 1970’s and 80’s for about 10 years when Walter Reade owned it. I stayed up until the day Cineplex Odeon took it over. It was a sad day last year to see a hole in ground on 59th and 3rd. So much of my youthful memories are about that theatre that I loved so much. It was my first managing job. It was a very prestigous theatre back then. Exclusive bookings, premieres, stars and it was the number one grossing theatre in NY for a time. Does anyone remember me? My name is Craig Dougherty. I have many stories to tell.
Did you know that the late Abby Hoffman used to be the manager in ther early 1960’s? Did you know that Sylvester Stallone worked there as an usher and was fired for stealing? He would go out on the sidewalk and sell loose tickets to the customers waiting on line.
