I saw the Blue Gardenia here in 1953, and Abbott and Costello in Hit the Ice in 1948.

Much of The Vista success is owed to Manager Fred McSpadden.
Mr Mac, as he was affectionately known. He was the best.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the Vista the first 70mm roadshow reserved seat theater in Phoenix during the late 1950s and 60’s? I know it played BEN HUR, SPARTACUS, MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY and THE SOUND OF MUSIC. MUSIC played for over 2 years in the Vista. It was operated by Fox West Coast.
