They are doing a Halloween triple feature of classic horror movies: Bride of Frankenstein (1935) Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958) Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)

The 1955-56 Theatre Catalog listed it with a capacity of 320, which can’t have been accurate. Could it be that it was including the seats in the Wheel-In’s indoor viewing area?

From its first listing in the IMPAs into the 1970s, the Wheel-In was given a capacity of 200. By 1982, it was down to 190.

Theater is temporarily closed until July 1 (approx) for installation of a new screen. Looks like it’ll be a very short season for them this year.

I guess it’s taking longer than expected. They still have not opened yet for the season.

Their website has vanished. This is all I get:

HTTP Error 404. The requested resource is not found.

As far as I know, they did not open.

I called their phone line and heard a long announcement about how they were now in their second week of being open. Also 2 different movies than what TomMc11 posted. I think they’re open.
