Wow. You can see the Daniels & Fisher tower in the background – odd to see 16th street looking West with cars on it. The current view is of the pedestrian mall that has been there since around the time they demolished the Centre.
Wishing there was a way to favorite Rich Vincent’s comments – the insights round out a lot of questions for someone who grew up with Denver’s amazing-but-now-gone theaters but wasn’t old enough to know the backstories.
Star Wars. The ‘reserved only’ night premier of The Empire Strikes Back. Alien (6th row back, to the right of the center section, too terrified to put my feet down and needing a restroom break but no way I was leaving that seat!)Anything that needed a full immersion experience was beyond amazing here. IMAX has always kind of seemed like a poor substitute for the experiences of seeing things in the Cooper back in the day.
Thanks for the link to that link to the Boxoffice archive @Tinseltoes – it was a gold mine! Wish I could get my hands on the full architectural plans! :)
