MotoFox: Did you not see my post from yesterday??? I mentioned the Dolby Digital thing and posted a link to the very same article.

According to http://www.film-tech.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=12;t=001143 this was one of the several theatres where Dolby Digital (AC3) premiered. Screened “Batman Returns” in SR/AC3.

Ghost— there’s lots of neon still at the Vancouver Plaza and a number of other former Act III/late Tom Moyer cinemas built during that period. I think it was a standard design motif that Regal kept. Dated but I think it still looks neat.

Crossroads was among just eleven theaters in the United States that installed the then-new Dolby Digital sound system for their engagement of “Batman Returns” which opened twenty-five years ago today. And here’s the link to a retrospective article that commemorates the occasion.

I worked here when I was 15 back in 1989. It was my first job ever. At the time, it was all brand new and neon. I haven’t been back in over 20 years but I imagine it’s dated.

Is this theatre still equipped with 70 mm projection?
