I was involved in the installation of the projection & sound equipment. If I recall they had “Century” projectors with “ORC” automation systems.

Oh wait, I’m sorry… I was referring to the Riverchase 6 that opened Thanksgiving 1982… the Bama Six at Centerpoint Rd was 1983. I had already transferred back to Nashville when that was opening up.

This theatre actually opened at Thanksgiving, 1982, or maybe a couple of weeks afterwards. I helped with the booth training as it was being installed and fixtured. At the time I was the Assistant Manager at the Bama Six in Tuscaloosa. Tuscaloosa had opened earlier that year, June 1982.

I lived across the street from Bama 6 for about 8 years and saw many movies there and few of them ever made it all the way through without stopping for a few minutes. The flat seating and frequent break-downs frustrated many movie goers in the area.
