The Eastland Theatre opened November 15, 1961. Back in the 1970’s and 1980’s this was the place to go, if you wanted to see a new release in 70mm. Screens 1, 2, and 3 were all equipped to screen 6 track Dolby stereo, 70mm films. Three large auditoriums with giant clean screens and good Dolby sound. I do remember one auditorium, it might have been theater 5, it was so small, that were you walked into it, you felt like you were inside a closet with a screen.
In the 1980’s when most of the new releases would come out in 70mm, most of the time, the Eastland would present them in 70mm. Films that I saw there in 70mm included “Close Encounters”, “Tron”, “Die Hard”, and one of the many re-releases of “Star Wars”.
The Eastland was demolished in February 2006.
