Final film/stage booking before switch had “The Girl from Petrovka” on screen.
It talks about the lack of G rated films but the Hall had no problem showing PG films. But nobody with good films wanted them at the Hall anymore. It no longer had prestige and the overhead was so high. Also they had gotten rid of the ballet company which was a big part of the spectacles the Hall was famous for. The great stage looked threadbare and severely underpopulated. The Rockettes sometime in the mid 70s were reduced to 30.
