Opened on the night of September 28th, 1966, as a reserved-seat roadshow, with “live” TV coverage by the local WNEW-Channel 5.

The Loews State Theatre may have run THE BIBLE in 7Omm but I don’t think they had the curved D-150 screen like the UA Rivoli Theatre had down the street? Why did they not play the movie in true D-150 at the Rivoli? May have been booked at the time or being ready to be torn down.

The Rivoli was ‘up’ on 49th Street and still showing The Sound of Music first run. It would have played the film into ‘67 but Fox wanted to get the film into the nabes and wanted the theater for The Sand Pebbles.

It never showed a D-150 movie. I think there were only two. I don’t even think it used its D-150 screen very often.
