I worked for the Bemidji Theatres back when I went to high school at the original high school . From 1970 to about 1974 . I ran the 35 MM projectors at both the Cisco and at the Bronco Theatre . I started out as yard boy and worked inside , they trained me for the projectors . Just going by memory myself , I think the Amigo Twin was built around 1973 ? I’m not too sure on that . After high school , I went to Vo Teck in Wadena and worked some weekends at the Amigo Twin . At that time , side 1 was totally a person running the projectors , side 2 however was totally automated . That was kinda neat ! The projectionest just kept an eye on it while running side 1 . I miss those days !
