My fondest memory of this theater was seeing “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” when I was 15. The theater was within walking distance of my house, so I visited it often (along with the Strathmore Twin down the road). I also recall going to the Saturday afternoon matinee showings of the “In Search of Bigfoot” and “In Search of Noah’s Ark” documentaries.

Yes, that’s true, Movie534, the auditorium was kind of wide. Don’t remember a particularly musty smell though. It was a pretty basic theatre, nothing much distinctive about it. I worked their briefly in the summer of 1977 when it had become a 99 cent second run venue. They showed SLAP SHOT, KING KONG, FUN WITH DICK AND JANE, THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU during that time.

I remember going to see a movie here probably in the late 1970’s. I remember the theatre was really wide, and not to long. The screen was huge. I also remember the theatre smelled really musty when I was there.
