That long run of BILLY JACK was at Cinema South.

Didn’t “Billy Jack” play here for an absurd run? Like 35 weeks? I remember this because the sequel didn’t play this location on release. Guess Mr. Mills was not happy…

This reopened as Cinema East on August 20th, 1965. Grand opening ad in the photo section.

The Belmont theatre had a nice balcony where we always sat.

This was a Bob Mills theater. He also had the Cinema South, Washington Square, and Cinema Centre Twin Cinemas in the Dayton area. The Cinema East was a neighborhood theater the mostly ran sub-run double features, but also ran some first-run features. The theater itself was fairly plain with a small lobby area, but had nice seating and a large deep-curved ‘scope screen.
