josephporasso commented about Country Squire Theater on Jan 24, 2005 at 8:26 pm

“The Sound of Music” and “Doctor Zhivago” had Fresno premieres at the Warnor’s Theatre in 70mm and “Oliver” opened at the Towne Cinema (formerly Sequoia) both downtown theatres.
I remember viewing “Ryan’s Daughter” (70mm), “Nicholas and Alexandra” and “Thoroughly Modern Millie” at the Country Squire. “Jaws” played to packed houses for months. The theatre had a huge screen and great sound.
At one time the Warnor’s, Hardy’s, Towne Cinema and Country Squire were operated by Trans-Beacon Theatres.

I was visiting Seattle several years ago and couldn’t wait to view a film at the Cinerama. The pic was “Lord of the Rings” and what a presentation. A huge screen, flawless projection and incrediable sound. We have nothing like this in SF. The Cinerama is the best!
