I remember one night the cars were backed up to the entrance and an employee telling us which shows were sold out. Very popular theatre in the 70s.

Cinerama commented about Remembering Cinerama (Part X: Oklahoma City) on Sep 7, 2018 at 5:05 am

The ads for MEDITERRANEAN HOLIDAY at the Continental do not mention Cinerama. It might have been a 35mm print or they just didn’t want to pay royalties to Cinerama.

No mention on Cinerama in the ads for It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. It should be removed from this list. They probably showed a 35mm print.

Cinerama commented about Columbia Theatre on Apr 3, 2018 at 12:32 pm

Someone asked why they masked the screen for The Sound of Music. Because of the contract with Cinerama Inc. plus, it was better for the theatre as they didn’t have to pay any fees to them! Also, they would of had to stretch the 2.2 image to fit the 2.76 AR screen.

Cinerama commented about Regency I on Dec 7, 2017 at 12:24 pm

I think it was this theatre that I saw Good Morning Vietnam. The seats and walls were all in green. Plus it had a balcony that wrapped around to the side walls. Nobody was sitting on the side balcony as it was not very deep and maybe didn’t have any seats. Was it this theatre?

I remember seeing Days of Heaven in 70mm 6-track sound and you had to take an escalator to get up to theatre. Was it this one or were there other theatres that had an escalator?

MEDITERRANEAN HOLIDAY did open at the Hartford Strand theatre on August 25, 1964 but in CinemaScope not CineVision.

Cinerama commented about Valley Theater on Apr 6, 2017 at 11:57 am

Did the Valley ever show Windjammer in Cinemiracle on their TODD-AO curved screen back in the late 50’s? I can’t find it looking through old newspapers.

Cinerama commented about Warren Theatre on Feb 23, 2017 at 7:39 am

Strange that I see articles in July 1960 that also mention its going to be razed in the fall 1960.

Cinerama commented about Keswick Theater on Feb 23, 2017 at 7:32 am

Hey veyoung52, it was called the Warren theatre in 1960 when Windjammer played there in Atlantic City. It was supposed to start July 29, 1960. In the same month I also see articles about it being demolished in the fall 1960.

Cinerama commented about Warren Theatre on Feb 23, 2017 at 4:26 am

Never mind, I found an article that says Windjammer will start on July 29, 1960 at the Warren.

Cinerama commented about Warren Theatre on Feb 22, 2017 at 12:51 pm

There was a mention that in the summer of 1959 or 1960 Windjammer played in Cinemiracle at the Warren. I can’t find any ads for this. All I see are ads for live shows during those two summers. In late 1960 the interior was demolished.

Cinerama commented about Carolina Theatre on Aug 31, 2016 at 12:36 pm

Too bad other than the 2001: a space odyssey ad, there are no other ads or pictures of the theatre when it was a Cinerama theatre from 1961 to 1969. I would love to add them to my list of Cinerama theatres – http://incinerama.com/ctcineramatheatres.htm
