a big theatre. i saw Women in Love and A Touch of Class there on a double bill.
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
Gone with the Wind
War and Peace
then, much later,
i remember seeing a double bill of
The Man with 2 Heads/Shaft’s big Score
i spent soooooooooooo much of my youth here. goldfinger, west side story, chitty chitty and so many more. so many saturdays i would spend all day here.
i remember as a young pup, all the ladies in the family going off to see valley of the dolls here, and i was confused because i wasnt allowed to go.
later i remember seeing Great White Hope, diamonds are forever here.
and wasnt that American Theatre film series shown here, Iceman Cometh, Delicate Balance, etc
