Does anyone remember this theater when it first opened? There was a big mural on one side of the lobby with drawings of old movie stars such as John Wayne, Clark Gable etc. We ushers used to pick out the music played in between movies. We would bring our own 8 tracks in to the projectionists, and they would play our favorites. Customers were treated to Yes, Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, and many others. It was a great time for movies and music in 1977.
I worked at this theater while it was being built in late 1977, and was hired as an usher when it opened. Played all of the best movies,and attracted the biggest crowds, especially on the weekends. Had a lot of fun there and met a lot of great people. Also got to see a lot of excellant movies such as Close Encounters, Star Wars, Saturday Night Fever, and one of my favorites, The Boys In Company C.
