This was the first cinema that I saw 70mm in! Half A Sixpence, 2001 A Space Odyssey, Ice Station Zebra, Ben Hur (1969 reissue) and Where Eagles Dare were all shown here in 70mm with Six Track Stereo. Even as recently as a year or two ago I dreamed it had reopened and was so happy in the dream! So clearly my subconscious holds it in high regard. I also saw The Mask aka Eyes Of Hell there in anaglyph 3D (my first X movie in a double bill with Roger Corman’s The Haunted Palace).
