Saw 2001 first run here in 1968. My cousin, who was a science fiction fan had a hard time explaining it.
Saw the revival of BEN-HUR here in 1969. At the time it was the best sound separation I had heard in a theater.
Saw JACK THE GIANT-KILLER here TWICE in 1962.
The last film showed here was the revival of THE SOUND OF MUSIC in 1973.
The theater was demolished summer 1973. I went through the rubble and got an original DIRTY HARRY poster!
Saw many Hammer horror and beach party movies here in the ‘60’s.
Saw my first movie here with my cousin, father and uncle in 1958: WHITE WILDERNESS.
Saw the restored A STAR IS BORN here in the mid-eighties.
The first film showed here was THE IMPOSSIBLE YEARS.
Totally renovated, with recliner seats, and reserved ticket sell-out shows. The last time we were there, an usher seated us. When was the last time you experienced that at a movie house?
The cinema opened in early 1966. Going for the first time it appeared modernistic with its blue light showing on the screen as my family seated ourselves. We saw a double bill of SHIP OF FOOLS and CAT BALLOU. The first film shown there was A PATCH OF BLUE.
SAW MY FIRST FILM HERE IN 1958, DISNEY’S WHITE WILDERNESS. STILL ATTEND FILMS THERE TODAY.
I SAW MANY FILMS THERE. IT WAS DEMOLISHED IN 1973. BEFORE THAT HAPPENED I WENT IN THE THEATER AND RETRIEVED THE HAND PAINTED CARDBOARD BANNER THAT HAD THE THEATER’S NAME EMBLAZONED ON IT. MANY TIMES HAD I PASSED UNDER IT. I STILL HAVE IT. IT MAY BE THE SOLE REMAINING THING FROM THAT THEATER.
