The one where my dad was a projectionist opened in June 1972 and closed in the fall of 1984. I wonder if this one had the blue colors in Cinema 1 and red colors in Cinema 2 like ours did.

From a newspaper article of 4-14-98 in the Daily Hampshire Gazette in Northampton MA: one of those “what was happening 25 years ago and 50 years ago” history features … this would have been April 1973: “Northampton movie aficionados, take heart. The Jerry Lewis Cinema may be dead, but "The Talkie,” under an alias and new management, is rising from the grave. Two recent college graduates, Stephen Brown and Dennis Curran, plan to have what was formerly “The Talkie” open as “The Globe” by the middle of next month. Scheduled for showing are old movies at cut-rate prices."
