The June 1, 2004 comment claiming this was the first San Francisco theater to have THX Sound is not correct. The first was the UA Galaxy. Unfortunately I’ve seen the erroneous claim repeated elsewhere.

There’s no need to correct me regarding my “Planet of the Apes” comment, Comfortably Cool, since I posted my comment on the 8th. I posted the comment at 9:39pm PST which is what shows up in the time and date stamp when I view this page. Perhaps my comment displays on your computer with an Eastern Time Zone posting?

MSC77 commented about Hendersonville Twin Cinema on Jan 23, 2018 at 5:49 pm

The “Star Wars” run mentioned in the overview was August 25th-September 7th, 1978. And while I cannot provide the theater’s opening date, I can confirm “Star Wars” was not the first thing to play here. (Some readers might misinterpret the ambiguous overview as indicating “Star Wars” was the theater’s debut booking.) As well the twinning appears to have have occurred later on as in summer ‘78 it was a single screener.

Does anyone recall (or willing to research) if the 70mm re-releases of “Gone With The Wind” (1967-68) and/or “This Is Cinerama” (1973) played here?

MSC77 commented about Syosset Triplex on Jan 3, 2018 at 11:32 pm

Did any general-release films play here in 1968 in between the roadshow runs of “Gone With The Wind” and “Star!”?

My December 14th comment regarding the new “Close Encounters” article actually belongs on this page instead. I didn’t realize there’s a separate database entry for the #3 screen. Which begs the question as to why the two entries aren’t combined into one.

Since “1776” was brought up I thought I’d share the link to an article I put together a couple years ago for the film’s Blu-ray release but which includes a mention of the Radio City run and a director interview.
