being on the west coast I’d love to se some pictures of your model. Any chance you would be willing to share some?
Opps … Uploaded Thumbnail by mistake have added the full sided Image.
I just found a payroll sheet that says I worked as a projectionist here Aug 16 & 17, 1985. The features were Secret Admirer, Just One Of The Boys & Fraternity Vacation.
After reading a book on Sid Ceaser I found out that Your Show of Shows originated from the Center. For those not familiar with it …. This was very similar to todays Saturday Night Live. Interesting that they filled the theatres 3510 seat for these TV shows.
As we all know there are many theatres with the same names such as Fox, State, Roxy, Tower and more. I always curious why there is not a way to search out a spicific name for example Tower, Los Angeles. insdead of going to a city like Los Angeles that has maybe 100 entries.
Oh and by the way congratulations on the new site.
Anytime someone revamps a website there are always a few things to iron out. We all look forward to the new version.
Thanks for the high quality repros
Does anyone know if there are any recordings of the Roxy theatre Organ? I would love to hear what it sounded like.
The screen is long gone. I have a shot of it somewhere.
When did the theatre reopen? I thought it was in limbo. But very happy to hear they are showing films again. Does this meen the theatre is now safe from being torn down?
I was hoping to see a picture of this theatre to get an idea of the shape of it. However there are quite a few Rialto theatres listed in TEXAS. Where is your theatre?
Love to see some pictures of when the theatre was in operation.
anyone heve some interior photos to share?
here is a link to a vidieo of the collapse.
when films were shown here it was from a projection booth on the stage and was rear projection
amazingly no one seams to have a picture of this theatre when it had a marquee. it apperfs to have closed from showing films in the 50s.
This and the Los Felez Drive-In don’t seam to have any photos.
I would like to see what you are selling as well.
Isn’t this a picture of the lobby that shows a drinking fountain in the corner?
Does anyone have any interior phots of this theatre? I once worked there as a relief projectionist showing Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I remember getting a light shock anytime I would touch both projectiors at the same time.
I worked as a relief projectionist once at the then UA THEATRE. The movie was the the first run engagement of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. with Reserved seats yet! at the 8pm show there were only 7 people in the audience.
The Drive-Ins opening film was the roadshow version of Mutiny On The Bounty starring Marlon Brando and Trevor Howard. Both shows were sold out that night. Meaning 2400 cars showed up.
What time is this happening I’d like to go
Back in the 70’s I went in this building when it was a Thrift store. I always thought it looked like it might have been a theatre at one time even thiough it was completely stripped and was very plain by then. It was in the 80’s that it burned down and was replaced with a strip mall. At that time I got a picture of the building where you can clearly make out the word Paramount on the rubble.
Funny no one has pointed out that the theatres name was originally the NEWS-VIEW and when they discontinued showing newsreels they droped the S from the name. I know this for a fact as I have a photo with it as the News-View.
The actual address of this Drive-In was 1501 East 6th Street. From a map quest image … What appears to be the Snack Bar and Projection Booth are still there.
