Now who could that be? Maybe me in my Super 8 epic horror film “THE FUNKY VAMPIRE”. I played the Vampire and of course got all the girls before a wooden cross was thrown on me. VIOLENT death,We almost got an R rating.

The demise of the theater was accelerated due to the wood screen frame burning due to lightning and combustion of pine trees next to the screen. The indoor twin cinema next door which premiered such films as Tommy in quadraphonic sound also nailed the coffin.
