I have the ads to its official grand opening. If you need to see them please contact me at .

From the research I conducted,the Asheville West Twin Theatres opened to huge crowds with the Western Carolina showing of Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall” to sold out capacity crowds upon its grand opening on June 3,1977. It even brought in biggest crowds when “Grease” played here in 1978 to sold out capacity crowds.

MikeOaklandPark, Mike Rogers, Arx,: I have found the original ads for the Asheville West Twin Theatres grand opening. I will revised this information and reposted it for the Cinema Treasures site. If you need to see the original grand opening ad please contact me at .

From what I have research on the Asheville West Twin Theatres grand opening it opened with the Western North Carolina premiere of Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall” on Screen One with Diane Keaton.

On Screen Two was “Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger” starring Patrick Wayne and Taryn Power(Patrick Wayne was the son of John “The Duke” Wayne,and Taryn Power was the daughter of screen legend Tyrone Power).

This theater was in a shopping center that is still in existence. There is an Ingles grocery store and an “Asiana Grand Buffet” across the parking lot. As you drive into the shopping center and look to the left, you can see where the theater was due to the raised roof in the back to accommodate the screens and projection booths. For some reason I think I remember seeing either “The Empire Strikes Back” or “Return of the Jedi” there.

August 7 1977 sees ASHEVILLE WEST playing Gergory Peck in a pretty good military movie,not quite up to par with PATTON,but Peck’s MacARTHUR is playing at the Asheville West. On the other screen for some reason,“ONE ON ONE” which is also playing at the other Irwin-Fuller Theatre the Merrimon 1 and 2 Theatres.Asheville,must be a heck of a basketball city!
