In the 1950’s it was equipped in Vistavision. Yul Brynner attended the premiere of The Ten Commandments.

In the photos section, I posted pictures done in November 2019 when I went to the concert of film scores composed by John Williams and Hans Zimmer.

In its last few years of operation as a cinema, it was an example of premium theatre in the hands of people who know nothing about cinema and have no idea on how to conduct such a venue. I remember seeing Superman 2 and The Empire strikes back in a crowded auditorium when I was a kid. Then on the other hand they showed a bunch of Chinese karate comedies with Jackie Chan, which I went to see on Saturday afternoons with a school mate and there were about 100 spectators, on a Saturday matinee!
