remember it well. it was a Cinerama set-up, with initial films including 2001:a space odyssey and ice station zebra. most expensive tickets in town ($1.25?). had a huge room for intermissions. two other firsts for fargo was seating in a smoking loge and a tv in the lobby.

Michael, what is your guess on what pecentage of the CINERAMA Screen was used to show the 35mm, 1.85:1, THE ANDERSON TAPES?

The October 7, 1968 issue of Boxoffice included a brief write-up about the opening of the Cinema 70, which, presumably, was in September ‘68. Owner was the St. Cloud, Minnesota-based Ross Theatre Circuit. “Oklahoma!” (in 70mm) was the debut attraction.
