The front of the theatre was nothing special, but how ‘bout his double feature…Planet of The Apes and Soylent Green. The later Edward G. Robinson’s last movie.
the Aragon Ballroom made it for years on the northside did pretty well in the 70 seventies as a concert hall. The Wiltern in LA still does. As does the Pantages. Bring the bands…the shows and they will come.
I saw everything from Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang to Cheech and Chong’s “Up In Smoke” at that grand old movie palace. It seemed 100 years old in the late sixties. My early visits were followed by a visit to Gerti’s and my later with a trip to Nicky’s Hot Dogs.
