Such a nice Todd-AO curved screen at the Coronet Theatre in SF. UA Theatres got money hungry sold the land and tore down this great 70mm showcase just even after they did a new seat and sound remodel. Strange a 49 foot curved screen does not seem to big now but I remember as a kid going to see ‘Oklahoma’ in Todd-AO for the first time with 6 track mag stereo It was something to remember at the long gone Coronet Theatre. They put all the surround speakers up in the roof ceiling not the side walls like most cinemas. Made for a great hidden surround effect. By the time they tore her down the place was full of mold. A sad day how UA Theatres treats their former deluxe roadshow theatres when they need $$$$$$.

Thanks for posting this kinospoter. Had never seen one of the ToddAO screen. By the time I saw my first movie at the Coronet (early 1960’s) it had been removed.
