bobbydias commented about Santa Maria Theatre on Mar 18, 2014 at 4:27 am

Maybe not referring to twin screens. The Santa Maria had the regular screen plus a cinerama screen for some special type of movies. Also, the upstair seat area was closed for some years because of safety concerns- the bottom area seated only 973 if a notice in the office was correct(I went there to sign a waiver of responsibility of my safety because the owner was afraid somebody would sue him if I got hurt at one of my all-girl get togethers). bonnach said: “Santa Maria has very little sense of history unless there is money in it.”– The guy running the museum(Chamber of Commerce building) runs it to suit his financial needs by changing history if the price is right.
