And here’s another stray photo I located – a view of the box office at the Almonte Cinemas 6 as it appeared in summer 1988. Note the standee advertising Tom Cruise in “Cocktail”, a big hit for us that summer.

Ticketing was a purely manual, paper and pencil operation – no computers. Six ticket machines loaded with three different color tickets, a cheat sheet to price multiple sales taped to the counter, and a hand-held calculator for backup. A far cry from today’s operations!

Yes it is but i enjoyed it.It was a time to chat with the girls,If they were real good they did everything for me,except count the money.About the time you would finish Box office, the concessionstand girl would come in with her money.Since we never had Cash registers or COMPUTERS it is amazing we hardly came up short. But like you said LOEWS had a separate Concession that you never had to worry about.

I heard that this was the busiest Cinema from the 1980s. I wish I have went there, cause it look like a really good Cinema to go to. But now it’s gone. Does anybody got a photo of the theater rooms and screens? I want to see what they look like.

the theater is completely desrtoyed as i am rewiring it at this time. stupid tweakers broke in and destroyed what they didnt steal. the screens are ripped down, speakers either broken or destroyed, and in the projector room every thing is gone.
