longislandmovies – No… It’s Ron, right?
longislandmovies – I’m almost certain we know each other now. If you were the manager of the York, I worked the York as an usher once or twice when you were short staffed. I worked at the Whitman for Bruce Johnson, and I think you put in a call to Jim Ward for a “pinch-usher.” I flirted with your candy girls all night.
I’m trying to rembember your name, but it’s been too long. does it begin with a “T”?
longislandmovies, we may very well know each other. I worked @whitman from may ‘82 to may '84. I knew some people at Shore and York.
longislandmovies, at one point I did work for Mrs. Burns, but I spent most of my time at the Whitman working for Bruce Johnson and Jim Ward was the Division Mgr.
Let me guess, YOU’RE TIMMY REDFIELD?
after 2 weeks @ Whitman, DMDWP moved to the York to make room for ET.
I have to a correction to the 56 week comment. It was, in fact, only 23 weeks.
I started work as an usher at the Whitman on May 14, 1982. “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid” premiered that night and ran for 2 weeks, to be replaced by “E.T.” on May 28th.
It ran for 23 weeks, and was replaced by “The Missionary” (starring Michael Palin on November 5th.
I set up the Marquee for E.T.’s last day – It read “E.T. IS GOING HOME”
I used to have a list of all the movies that played there while worked there, but it’s among the missing now. I never would have thought that sometime in the future there would be websites to distribute such trivia.
And yes, I also confirm the seat count at 778.
