I saw many movies in this theatre in the 1970’s. Movies such as Jaws, The Great Gatsby, King Kong, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Star Wars, and many, many more. I’d see anything that was showing even though I was between 8 – 12 years old. I can remember there were two sets of bathrooms because in early days they were segregated for blacks and whites. The seats were very old even back then, the material was very dark red, thick, and almost course. I still remember the feel of those seats, something you’ll never see or feel like that again. I saw so many movies there that I knew by memory which seats creaked or sunk in.
