Theatre used a Sword automation system. There were 2 projectors for each theatre with large reels. The first half of the movie would play on one projector, then, after the changeover to the other projector, the first projector would rewind to the starting point. It required very little attention once it was running.

Opening features were 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Odessa File. The opening ad featured the headline, “Most people go out to see a movie…now they can go out to see a theatre, too!”

Ran a magnetic stereo print of BLUES BROTHERS in the larger theatre.
