I remember Lion In Winter playing here as a roadshow attraction. Was that its first booking?

It was the cleanest, best run theater in town. Shelly Silverman was the Manager. As an Usher, then Doorman I spent my time cleaning bathrooms and taking customers to their seats. I seem to remember that there were 910 seats.

The Village was built and operated by a local chain-lette run by Bert Lefkowitz called Community Circuit Theatres in about 1968 or 69. They also had the Richmond, Riverside, Berea, Showplace and Cedar-Lee. The Village was equipped with 70mm-mag stereo and was a roadshow house following the closure of the downtown theatres. I was there once (though I forget for what movie) and I recall it appeared to have about 800 seats. Loew’s bought out Community Circuit (except for the Cedar-Lee which Lefkowitz leased to Jonathan Forman) about 1975 in one of their erratic bursts of expansion and contraction in the Cleveland area.
