I was a projectionist here for the whole 8 years it was open. They installed a Cinerama curtain track but only put in a smaller flat screen around 55' wide. Even the projection ports were almost 3' wide. They only put in Simplex 35mm machines and no stereo.

OK, the older Fox Theatre in Springfield mentioned in the postings of Sept 28 2007 and just above is listed here in Cinema Treasurew as the Art Theatre, CT #3721.

There was apparently an earlier Fox Theatre somewhere in Springfield. The 1927 Film Daily Yearbook lists “Fox’s” with 1300 seats, open daily.

Dollar dreams is a great dollar store but nothing compared to the great HUGE screen theater it once was. I saw “1976” on a school field trip in 6th grade.
