Saw Raiders of the Lost Ark on my parent’s wedding anniversary, Empire Strikes Back, and Ghostbusters twice (the next year on a double-bill with the premiere of Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure) here.

The Fireweed is now officially closed. It went out with a whimper, screening the Miley Cyrus film “The Last Song.”

<<< 1971 taken over by Womecto >>>

From this point until 1984 it was promoted as “Wometco-Lathrop.”

<<< 1980 Three cinemas >>>

Conversion to triplex took place in 1979.

<<< 1986 expanded to seven cinemas >>>

Expansion was to eight screens, not seven.

Come to think about it,We did sell alot of popcorn and candy on certain late shows.

TLSLOEWS on December 29, 2009 at 9:04 am

With a name like “Fireweed” I bet they sold a lot of popcorn.
