In response to dallasmovietheaters comment. Great information but when I was there in the 1970’s there was no automation of the projectors. There was a projectionist on duty. His name was Paul Turnball.

The TM Theaters Co. was owned by a Mr. Weiner from Kansas City. It was named after his wife’s cat Timmy!. I worked there from 1972 to 1976. He also opened a similar multiplex on Oracle Road here in Tucson. I also worked there for a little while to assist in getting it opened and train the staff. He hired college students for the ushers.The Cineworld was the first “multiplex” in Tucson and we had tickets for $1.00 around 6pm-7pm. We packed the house. Because we were the first multiplex we had to enforce which theater you went into as different movie companies needed to get their profits. Now nobody cares if you switch theaters!
