I lived in the apartment complex across the street from the Andora Shopping Center in the early 70’s, and we much enjoyed the theater, grocery store, steak house, etc. William Martin was the manager of the theater at the time……….does anyone know his whereabouts now? Best regards and thanks for the memories………Loren Martin, Big Cabin, OK

“January 5, 2003. It has since been demolished, and a health club was built on the site.”

why is status showing as closed?

I was Mgr. of the single screen Andorra in 1973-74. “American Graffiti” – “The Sting” – “Earthquake” all played 6+ weeks.

I was manager of the Andorra (87-88) for AMC after the Budco purchase. It was an interesting time. Is anyone out there who also was there?

An architect’s rendering of the proposed Andorra Theatre was published with a brief article about the house in the April 6, 1964, issue of Boxoffice Magazine. It was slated for a summer opening that year. Architects were the firm of Supowitz & Demchick (David Supowitz, Israel Demchick.) In its original, single-screen configuration, there were 1000 seats.
