I worked at Cinema 5.

I started back in the mid 90’s at Meadows as an usher and eventually moved up to Assistant Manager. When I started working at Meadows, Joe McManus was the head manager. He was eventually replaced by Anthony Sauter.

Eventually I was transfered over to Cinema City 5, a/k/a Cinema 5, a/k/a C5, and worked as an assistant manager under Daniel Tully. After about a year, he left and was replaced by Indra Gierdharie. Around 1999, Indra got promoted to a position in the 42nd street theatre, and I was then moved up to Head Manager (“Managing Director”) of C5. I held that position for about 2 years until I left to focus on Law School. I was replaced by Darwin as Managing Director of C5 I believe.

Projectionists I remember from Meadows were Sal, Fred and Bill.

The Projectionist at C5 were Alan Berkowitz, Simon, and (Sydnie I think that’s it).
