Given your taste for Starbucks instead of A&P, I’m not sure you’d get enough for one cup a day….maybe one every 2.3879 days! And the answer to your question is “Yes”. Contact me sometime ().

Facts: 1. I managed this theatre during the years of the “Blade Runner” preview showing Harrison Ford attended and Carol Channing caught a performance of “ET”.

  1. For the entire performance of “Blade Runner”, Mr. Ford was seated in the private balcony outside the projection booth. As the end credits rolled, it was reported to me a patron had suffered a possible heart attack. My Chief of Staff (Marta Mahaffey) and I immediately left the projection booth. On the way down the steps, Ms. Mahaffey shouted, “He’s (Ford) coming, too.” I responded, “Well, he’s on his own!” Upon reaching the lobby, Ford was immediately beseiged by fans. He survived.

Over the years, other stars sat in the back rows of NorthPark, however Ford was not among them.

  1. Ms. Channing did pass out tissues to those seated around her in the fifth row center. She did not go down the aisles passing out tissues!

Theatre is now owned by the Arlington Independent School District and is a learning center of some sort.
