I remember filling in for the full time projectionist vacation at this theatre. It was nice. I was showing Lady & the Tramp that week and the cinemascope was large and sharp. Still had the reel to reel changeovers and the carbon arcs. I think the manager was Sherry at the time. It must have closed sometime in ‘81 if I remember correctly.

This theater was kind of a smaller version of the UA Mayfair Theater. It had the booth under the balcony just a few steps up from the lobby. Same design concept as Mayfair, Southgate and the Madison Hilldale. Nothing really special about it, but not bad for a strip mall theater. Nice size screen, Simplex XL 35’s with Ashcraft Carbons.
