I was 17 when SOM opened. I saw it twice in 70mm at Shoppingtown.

The Syosset theatre on Long Island was built specifically for Todd A O and opened about 3 months earlier. There may have been others. That said, Shoppingtown was my favorite theatre when I was a kid. I saw many of the 70mm roadshows there and spent a lot of time in the booth bugging the projectionists.
