All too bright white lights no color bulbs. Deco remodel ruined without the original blue and red bulbs with a little green. Too bad!

I wonder if the Palace Theatre played the movie in 70MM? Probably just 35mm scope mono!

Thanks Kino. How nice the color lights look on the curtains. In the USA very few of our movie theatres have curtains that work and when they do have them they put no color light on them!.

Thanks Joshua for the photo. How nice this small cinema would look with color lights in the ceiling not old white bulbs. I wonder if the place had stage curtains? Hope they have stereo surround sound. Are those speakers down front of the screen, for music events or movies?

Thanks for this classic photo. Too bad they removed this great neon marquee and just saved the FOX sign and put on the side door entrance. The FOX is still closed in downtown Watsonville as the owner runs the only other cinema multi in town.

Thanks David for the ad. No mention of D-150? but at least they put in 7OMM full stereo sound in the ad. Many cinemas ran it in 70mm and never mentioned it in their ads.

Thanks KINO for this classic ad. They probably cut back in 1963 like all Cinerama® Theatres had to do a little on the size of the bottom right and left curve with masking when they showed this first Super Cinerama® 70mm single projector film. Many Cinerama® projectionists had no jobs when the original 3 booth Cinerama®large curved screens turned off the 2 side projectors.

A big SCOPE thanks Lionel for the photo image. I wonder if this Warner West End Theatre screen opened up more on the sides for full 70mm scope or was this photo set for flat 1.85?

terrywade commented about Orpheum Theatre on Aug 21, 2020 at 6:39 am

Thanks Kino for this side wall photo from the former Cinerama Orpheum Theatre in SF. This is where the huge curtains and curved screen covered up this side temple. The current owners need to put some color lights behind the grills not just white lights!

terrywade commented about Orpheum Theatre on Aug 20, 2020 at 8:22 am

You will notice the name CINERAMA® Orpheum is missing as they showed this 35mm flat film not in the Cinerama® system but just used the middle part of the huge curved screen. At least I remember they had a 4 ch mag track stereo print but they never mentioned it in the ads. Thanks again Kino for all your movie ad finds. Seems like many people complained the the screen curtains did not open up like in the 3 projector days. The Cinerama® Orpheum did return later for more full 3 projector Cinerama® movies and then Super Cinerama® 70mm before it became a live stage music event theatre.

Thanks Kino The Orpheum SF Cinerama Theatre had one of the best curved Cinerama® screens with curtains in the USA. It came off the stage and into the first few rows. You can see on the far right of this photo one of the right surround speakers on the floor ready to be put on the right side wall.

Thanks strange add the logo CINERAMA® is missing. May have been a 35mm showing? No word even about 70mm or stereo sound?

terrywade commented about Warner Hollywood Cinerama Theatre – Later to become Pacific 1-2-3 on Aug 12, 2020 at 10:13 am

Thanks for this great image. The Warner Cinerama® Hollywood was one of the best Cinerama® cinemas in the USA. The wrap a around curved screen curtains came into the seats on thee sides. Great semi pink/red lights on the curtains. The Pacific 3 now just sits there empty with all the tourists walking by and Pacific Theatres will do nothing with the building. The downstairs is still huge and in good shape. It’s time to put in a big curved curtain screen with 4D and show a special 70mm movie on Hollywood! Light up the marquee and bring in the visiting movie loving crowds! Show them some SHOWMANSHIP that is now lost in Hollywood.

terrywade commented about July 1957 print ad courtesy Russell Barber‎. on Aug 4, 2020 at 6:30 am

A friend of mine'Richard'new the nice Jewish family that ran The Stone Burlesk Cinema in Detroit. Thanks David for the ad image. No more strip burlesque theatres around Detroit these days. The great time before the internet had the girls on stage all around Detroit also at a few other live stage burlesque cinemas. Strange they had the spelling of the Stone as Burlesk, I guess many of these old live stage strip theatres used this type spelling.

terrywade commented about Theatre Royal 639 Hay Street, Perth, WA - The proscenium set for wide screen. on Aug 4, 2020 at 6:16 am

Hope the masking and curtains open more then this 1.85 photo shows for scope wide screen movies? Thanks film for the Image. The curtains if they still work look like they are on a curved track. Seems a little curved in this shot. I wonder If they ever had a full curved screen behind them at Theatre Royal ?

Thanks so much David for this great photo of Olivia. I wonder if they showed GWTW in 70mm on their Todd-AO curved screen?
