When this theater was converted and split multiple times, it was like looking at a tv screen down a long tube. lol

The projection booth was old style. Back when there the projectors ran 20 minute reels and had to be watched constantly. Because of this, there was almost an apartment feel to the booth. Over in one corner was a toilet just out in the open and I think a bed but fuzzy on that one. Since the reels were so short, the projectionist were unionized and couldn’t leave the booth. Of course they eventually went to 1 hour reels and then to full movie platters. There was always a rumor that surrounded this theater that it was haunted. Supposedly an employee had hung themselves in the booth after hours.
