MSC77 commented about Edwards Town Center 4 on Oct 11, 2022 at 6:10 pm

Flix70: Your E.T. comment of June 12th has some errors: (1) The domestic gross at the conclusion of its 52-week first-run was $359 million (the $435 million figure you cited includes re-issues). (2) Its domestic all-time gross record held for 14 years (not 11) until eclipsed by the STAR WARS: SPECIAL EDITION re-issue. (JURASSIC PARK eclipsed the E.T. gross worldwide but not domestically.) (3) The Town Center’s run was 49 weeks in total with the latter half of its run in 35mm in a smaller house.

I share your celebratory sentiment and have fond memories of seeing E.T. numerous times in 1982. (I did not see it at Town Center though I’ve seen many other films there.)

Howard:

1) MW = “Man in the Wilderness” and it was only on opening day per the Philly policy back then of overlapping the outgoing movie’s final day with the incoming movie’s opening day. (There is a legend for the co-hit abbreviations at the beginning of the article’s theater listing on Page 2.)

2) No, it’s 6838 Hollywood Blvd. Currently known as El Capitan.

Does anyone have a more precise ownership timeline than what is given in the overview (and elsewhere online)? In particular, when did Esquire last own it, and in what year did it get renovated into its 10-screen configuration?

MSC77 commented about MacDade Drive-In on Jan 7, 2022 at 11:26 pm

The “Star Wars” run at MacDade Drive-In didn’t commence until July 27th, 1977 and played for about six months, so RidleyRick certainly didn’t see it there during June and quite possibly not in July either.

Bigjoe59: Try this link instead.

As I (and others) have mentioned before, members posting links to articles as a courtesy (and to increase likelihood they get read) ought to make them clickable.

MSC77 commented about Cinedome Theatres on Dec 31, 2021 at 9:11 pm

Here’s a clickable link to the RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK retrospective article that was mentioned a few comments ago.

I can’t be the only Cinema Treasures member who wishes the Cinema Treasures crew would “strongly encourage” commenters make their links clickable. It’s not difficult: Simply type out within brackets how you wish the link to read and then paste the URL within parenthesis that follow the brackets.

I skip right over comments that include an un-clickable link (and I bet most members do the same). So I imagine links to articles will get read more often if they’re clickable.

Happy New Year!
