Forgot to mention…the ticket prices for all of those concerts was like $6 – $6.50 each…
I went to many concerts there in the mid-70s. The Harvey of Harvey & Corky, who owned the theater then, is Harvey Weinstein, of Miramax fame. Here’s what I remember seeing there:
Jerry Garcia Band
Fleetwood Mac (with Stevie Nicks, just before they became huge)
Lynryd Skynryd/Charlie Daniels Band
Genesis (with Peter Gabriel)
Electric Light Orchestra
The place was quite a dump as I recall, and yes, the balcony did rock, literally. I never heard of it being used as two sepearate theaters.
They used to show films there like Cocaine Fiends, Reefer Madness, Monty Python’s Holy Grail, Woodstock, Journey Through The Past (Neil Young), Yellow Submarine, Wood Allen films, etc. This is what teenagers did before VCRs and cable TV…good times.
