“Black Sunday”(77); “Breaking Away”(78); “Empire Strikes Back”(80) “Return Of The Jedi”(83), among others! It really doesn’t get any better than the Big Newport experience. Delighted that they brought the curtain back, also. A new generation now gets to see how movies are PROPERLY presented! Now, if we could just get rid of annoying pre-show commercials/previews(FOR TV???) & adverts! It just KILLS it!
I realize adverts pay for operations, etc, but come on, keep it on tv & out of this beautiful theatrical experience for crying-out-loud!
Anyone else hearin' me on this?
Thank you so much for the info on the “Plitt City Center” in Orange, Ca. I think it’s great that there is some history still preserved regarding the theatre.
I received a response to my comment on July 3rd, but I don’t know where to find it. I clicked on the address…no indication where it is. If anyone can help I would be grateful.
Hey, Does anyone in Orange County, Ca. remember “The Plitt” as we called it, located where “The Block At Orange” is now located? It was, up until the early 80’s, a single screen with slightly curved screen and incredible sound! Remember walking into the doors past the lobby and the enormous screen seemed to be so close and wrapped around you? Star Wars & ET opening day…and those high-back, rocking seats! Remember the restaurant connected across the breeze-way? What was it called?
