Anyone with pictures of the inside please add this was my favorite theatre when I was a kid – Batman Retruns, Home Alone 2, The Little Mermaid, TLOR – Return of the king, Alien3 and so many more. I loved the riser stadium feature of it. It had really nice auditoriums.

Was projection supervisor here in 1996 to 1997. Screens 1 and 16 were additions added on and had strong lamphouses, christie platters, and christie heads, with Ultra Stereo and SDDS. Screens 2 to 7 were ORC lamphouses, christie heads, and ORC platters, with Strong processors and SDDS. Screens 8 and 9, the two largest houses, had Century JJ projectors and ORC lamphouses. Screen 8 had a Dolby CP65 with analog SR and SRD (which was never used) and SDDS. Both screens 8 and 9 had Christie platters. Screen 9 had a Dolby CP200 with SDDS. Screens 10 through 15 were ORC Lamphouses, christie heads, ORC platters, and Strong stereo processors with SDDS. As the Strong sound processors died, they were replaced with Ultra Stereo (thankfully). Surround speakers originally in the ceiling until SDDS install. We had lots of problems with gangs at this theatre and always had several off duty HPD officers for security. My first night here there was a stabbing in the parking lot. So that was fun.

If my memory serves me right, this cinema featured tiered seating, a predecessor to the now ubiquitous stadium seating.
