Gccguy – No.. It was not my mom.
I grew up on the south side and took the #79 bus to Ford City Theatre. I have many fond memories of the original theater. ANd I do remember the tornado incident as well as a smoke bomb incident in the theater. When my mom was pregnant with my brother in 1974, I remember the movie Earthquake! was shown in theater #3 with the new “Sensurround” surround sound. I heard that the fire marshal ordered the sound turned down because of the vibration causing structural damage.
