in 65, i remember going to see the Sound of Music here- on the Lex ave side. we arrived very late, and i remember going up a substantial flight of steps to get to the seating area.

my cousin was an usher here and she was allowed to let us sit in the last row of the theatre and get free popcorn. this was during the roadshow days so we were able to see- as follows
Funny Girl
Hello Dolly
Sweet Charity
Gone with the Wind
War and Peace
Ben Hur
Ten Commandments

then, much later,
i remember seeing a double bill of
The Man with 2 Heads/Shaft’s big Score
