The Capri was a single screen , 995 seat theatre from the time it opened until I left in 1974. Second and third screens were added after 1974
Patricia. I was there when the exorcist was there also. We must have worked together.
Well, they were not big stars at the time. Just starting out I think. I got to go to the luncheon for them but mr brand had me work the rest of the day and David Newton got to spend the rest of the day driving them to various public apperiences in his red 66 ford mustang. Movie premiered in July 1973.
Ok, the last American hero, the junior Johnson story made its world premier at the Capri. The stars Jeff bridges and valerie perin came and I had the pleasure of having lunch with them at the hotel across the street from the Capri.
I knew your father, Eddie marks. For a while there I was sorta mr brands assistant manager and I remember helping out your dad a couple of times. Wow this is bringing back memories. Worth, you and I worked there at the same time
Worked there from late sixties to about 1974. Best job I ever had and Mr Brand was best boss I ever had. Bert Higgins , mr Anderson, the projectionist who’d smoke whacky tabacca while working. The popcorn room upstairs where I spent many a hour popping popcorn. Charlotte premier of the exorcist was there. Loved working there.
