No mention of Super Cinerama or 70mm in this ad. Thanks DB
Thanks for the photo. Hope they have some black lights on this theatre lobby carpet to make It glow pop. I wonder If any carpet places in the USA sell this print design. Joy Carpets in the USA makes many black light glow rugs for movie cinemas and home theatres.
These SUPER SCREEN signs would bother me while watching a movie. Hope they go off after the trailers or can you still see the reflection? Nice size semi curved screen. Thanks SK
Thanks Stan for the info. Such a great curve screen cinema before ABC got money hungry and did a chop job. Showmanship at It’s best with color curtain lights and the great ABC Plitt UltraVision® system long gone.
So great to see these short clips in a movie theatre. If I had a cinema I’d run the classic hard to find intermission trailers along the candy/drink short teasers. Most are available on DCP. I have some on 16mm film and use them when making my trailer reels. Thanks Dallas for the photo. Looks like a nice curve screen also. Do they have curtains? You won’t find these short movie treasures at a big circuit plex.
Thanks Chris so nice that AMC is adding some color lights around the screen in some theatres.
After all these years the 4 Star now has STEREO SURROUND!!!! Too bad they did not tear out the tiny back side art space and enlarge the whole place into one semi large movie space with curtains. At least they are open with new sound.
A recent visit to the Palm Theatre Nov 3 2022 4PM watching Triangle Of Sadness in the small Theatre #2 space had problems. While a nice little clean art cinema in San Luis Obispo this auditorium did not have the right stage speaker working along with the two lame surround speakers. Too make maters worse they left the bright work lights on even after the one trailer they showed finished and the movie started. Had to find someone at the candy counter to tell them about the light and speaker issue. Never corrected the sound but they did turn off the work light. The Palm is the only game in town for most art movies. I wonder how long the sound problem has been going on in this auditorium?
Thanks DB 54 for the ad. Must have been a great stage show. A few years later this theatre became a Cinerama® Theatre I believe for Boston.
So nice with multi color lights. Many of these type of classic theatres just put in white light bulbs.
Thanks Kino. These need Yellow or Blue bulbs not white. Nice effect.
Thanks Kino, such a great looking screen, I guess no room for stage curtains.
Thanks Brade for this great 3D ad. It was probably not shown in the original two projector set up like in the 1950’s. Fox West Coast Theatres was the name before Mann took over.
Now open as of Aug 11 2022 under new owners from LA. Called CineLounge® Tiburon. Fully remodeled 3 cinemas state of the art. 2 auditoriums with 70 seats each and a small one at 25 seats I believe.
They may have curtains but not sure.
Please change to open Thanks
Not one mention about FANTASOUND® Stereo. Hope they did not run in mono.
What no 3D showings of Frankenstein? This film had great 3D!
Thanks for the photo. I always liked Royal Crown® better then Pepsi® or Coke® products. Hard to find now.
The better new cinemas feature the Dolby Atmos® system
The RPX Regal screens are not as nice as the Cinemark Century XD screens. The XD screens have a great curve to them.
Must have ben a busy time for the projectionist in the 70mm booth. I wonder If they had a platter then or reel to reel?
Thanks Brian for the great photo. You won’t find any movie theatre circuits in the USA putting in waterfall curtains like at the Coliseum Cinema. The USA movie people have no showmanship. Now Lets get the Coliseum folks to put in some red or blue curtain stage lights.
So sad new theatres don’t bother with masking on the top and sides. You see white screen showing. The days of nice moving drapes with color lights and masking are mostly gone. The circuit companies try to fit in as many tiny auditoriums as they can so the screens are not that wide. Thanks Howard for the photos.
I guess they did not put in 70mm in Staten Island like many of the other Alamo Cinemas. Looks like only one semi large auditorium the rest tiny flat screens. Same lights and wall covering like all the other Alamo places.
So nice they plugged TODD-AO and stereophonic 6 track sound.
Just before CinemaScope® came out. I do think It had a 4 ch stereo track. A NYC Roxy Theatre movie and stage ice show, something you won’t see today at the multiplex. Thanks CC for the ad.
