I was there for opening night. I had to dress like a mummy to promote the film The Awakening, one of the Americana West’s first films. I still have my opening night key chain and cocktail napkin.
Terrific info and pictures, I was a projectionist here back in the early 80’s. Mostly karate flicks and horror films. Great memories, and I’m happy to have had an opportunity to work in an old movie palace.
Hey brooklynbobby – I was an usher at that time, under Mr. Etter. I think I remember you, before the Shaker tenure, which all but ruined the place.
I’m still pals with Marianne as well, from the concession stand.
Nice to see you still boppin around. BTW the screening of the first Evil Dead was called Within the Woods. I still have my ticket stub. All the best.
