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.

Excited to read through these scribes. My most impactful memory…being a virgin girl from south Augusta to visit fancy NHills to watch “Basic Instinct” with new beau. Oh, gees. Balcony(?) cover was not enough. Wanted to crawl under the seat. Scrolled through scribes and saw “koi pond.” Remember that pond. Mention of NHills theater made me remember that I got my first pair of hiking boots (had to buy from boys' section) at JB White’s in 1996, compliments of my grandmother. Wow. CT has really resurrected some memories. THANK YOU! Wish I had more to contribute than nostalgic recollection. Now…on to Regency Mall and that fancy cinema that got built behind there…

From the Augusta Chroncile,dec 30 2011,augustachroncile.com,what is left of my National Hills theatre,Mainly that huge theatre is being converted into a 8.000 sq.ft. Ball room.and convention center,Being across from the Augusta National,home of the MASTERS,you can bet it will be used once a Year,and sit lifeless the rest of the year, What a waste,Called “THE LEGENDS CLUB” it won’t be open for regular folks.
