I remember the old Franklin Mills building was purchased instead of leased by one of the Smith kids from General Cinema. The corporation lost their shirt on that purchase.
I opened this theatre as a trainer for GCC. It had an attached restaurant run by Neiman Marcus called the “R”.
Head projectionist Jimmy Heckel, opened up the booth at the new location. I worked with him for about the first year. I don’t know where Jimmy went to after that. I opened that theater as a manager and stayed until after AMC took over.
