Went from a single screen to a triplex on May 26, 1976. Last single screen showing was “The Missouri Breaks”
I remember both the LEE and the LINWOOD. I recall the LEE’s huge flat marquee. Saw IN LIKE FLINT there and probably scores of other films.
The LINWOOD was walking distance from where I lived and used to let me into R rated movies when I was in high school. I remember seeing such 70’s classics as CISCO PIKE, I WALK THE LINE, and I think MIDNIGHT COWBOY there. Didn’t realize it too had been razed, and I don’t remember the colored light show….
I missed the old PLAZA THEATER in Englewood and hate the modern makeover of the facade when it became the JOHN HARMS CENTER. The ticket takers' name was Freida RAGAZZI and she had facial hair.
