How far was the Harvey Theatre from the Dixie Square Mall?
Wikipedia states the film had its world premiere at the K-B MacArthur theatre
looks like the ticket booth is still standing
On a cold, rainy day in December of 1979 this theatre held the world premiere of “Star Trek-The Motion Picture”. Robert Wise actually brought the film cans here because Paramount was in a rush for him to complete it for the holiday season. Shatner, Nimoy, Gene Roddenbery & the rest were here for the premiere. Now a CVS pharmacy occupies the building. There ought to be a law!
I have a program for ‘Rocky III’, not even close to a roadshow
nature starting to reclaim the screen, sad
Saw “The Doors” there in 1991 also saw the original “Child’s Play” in 1988 when I was a Junior in high school. It was fairly new in ‘88 so it couldn’t have been open for too long then.
very nice pictures of what remains!
kinda small screen
looks like it went out in a blaze of porn
CVS sure didn’t do much at all in remodeling the place lol
wonder what the front side of the screen looks like?
wow, televisions at the concession area. that is different lol
Hopefully a lot of the drive-ins that shut down last season will re open with the new lease to own digital projectors
It’s good to see more and more Drive-ins with the heading “open (showing movies)” than “closed/demolished”!!
The upper window on the far right was the location of the theatres restroom, I only remember 1, but there could have been another
Behind this double door was the entrance to the auditorium. Stairs were to the left and right for the balcony. Behind the refridgerator was the window for the concession area, there was another window to the immediate left just upon entering the double doors. Bags of popcorn were 50 cents, candy was 25-50 cents and very small cups of pepsi, which often tasted like glue lol)were 50 cents. Usually one of the girls that worked the concession stand would give me a huge leftover bag of that nights popcorn to take home!
Usually above the doors it was posted-FRI, SAT, & SUN 7:30 (days of operation and showtime)
One sheets were hung in this frame by 4 push pins, you can still see thousands of the pinholes
Doors to the Boone Theatre. In the 70’s, the owner, Mrs. Greene would have all the doors open after the feature to let out the movie going crowd
godawful multiplexes NEVER do stuff like this anymore!
looked beautiful and amazing!
very cool photo
I checked out the picture and I could barely make out part of “Fountain”, cool!
