Charlie Sugarman would be smiling about all the attention his old theatre is getting.
The projectors were incredible to operate and outclassed anything coming out in the mid 80’s/early 90’s. I suspect they might still be running. I can’t remember if Chakeres moved them to another newer theatre, or sold them. This may be around the time Chakeres decided to sell the chain.
While the sound suffered due to the surround speakers, the screen and theatre size overcame any shortcomings, and made any movie watched at Cinema East an experience.
