The booth at The Pearl contains two Simplex E-7 projectors running 2 thousand foot changeover with Motiograph magazines and xenon lamphouses. It is also notable that the booth ceiling is extremely low, do to existing support beams. I stand 6'3" and had to stoop considerably when walking around the booth.

The information by Lost Memmory should be clarified: There are two John Groys in the Groy Family…John Sr. and John Jr.
John Senior is the actual current owner and he is the one who constructed it. It was named for John Sr.’s first wife, Pearl Hazard-Groy (now deceased), John Jr.’s mother. John Jr. manages the Comanche Drive In in Buena Vista. This theater was constructed in the remains of a defunct harware warehouse. It is a wonderful theater and anyone in the area should visit when it is open.

The Groy Family also owns The Unique Theater in Salida, Colorado and The Comanche Drive In which all still operate. They also owned and operated at one time: The Ute Theater, Saguache,CO, The Pines Theater, Buena Vista,Co, and the Groy Drive In, Salida,CO all of which are now closed.
