I was there in the early sixties when it was converted to show Todd AO 70mm films. The excitement of being involved with the conversion as a lowly third projectionist has stayed with me ‘til now. After the conversion we openned with the 35mm 4 track mag sound copy of THe Nuns Story which ran for a season, This was followed by Oklahoma! In my book a new genre of film projection had started.
Sadly, all has gone now and no sign of the cinema remains.
I would also like to mention the dedicated team I worked with
Chief Frank Saunders
Second Ernie Brown
Second Ken Harvey
Third John Williams and of course myself
