drbjerkaas commented about Hollywood Theatre on Apr 14, 2012 at 12:20 am

The Hollywood was never owned or operated by Marcus Theatres. The most recent chains were, beginning from the 1970’s, Plitt, Cineplex Ogden and finally Carmike. There will be a considerable cost to refurbish the theatre besides the structure itself. Digital Sound and projection systems will be well over $100K alone. There isn’t a need to replace every seat on the main floor to its original 800 seats.

All original Star Wars movies were show at the Hollywood. Mike is correct. Star Wars Ep. IV was shown at the King in August, 1980 with a 2 minute trailer for TESB. That’s the only time Star Wars was shown at the King.
