The National Hills Theatre opened in November 1966. I remember it from the 1970’s. It had a long koi pond outside for patrons to enjoy while waiting for tickets. There were curtains that opened before each film and a large lobby packed full of lobby cards.

Hey Mike, When the Hillsboro in Tampa was twinned in 1978 they installed Dolby Stereo in one twin. “SUPERMAN” was the opening attraction and the sound was fantastic…crisp sharp highs and deep low bass. The best I had ever heard in a theatre at the time (except for Cinerama 7 track stereo.) Though many will disagree I still believe the original Dolby Stereo sounded just as good as today’s high-tech state-of-the-art systems.
