I worked there in 1978 as an usher, I think we were at least 20 ushers at that time, we had so much fun there, used to go sit behind the big screen in Cinema1. On Saturday nights all ushers were working at the same time, each of us were making animal noises in the main lobby, it sounded like a real jungle. I remember lots of cool people from that time, unfortunately they are all only in memory.

I worked there in late 1979, I was training to be assistant manager. Looking at the picture above it reminds me the smell of espresso/cappuccino from the mall. I don’t have too much other memories other than having a crush on the Greek cashier, every time I went to get myself a coffee I would ask her if she wanted one and she responded all the time with a “naa”. After a few weeks I had realized as a Greek she was actually saying yes in Greek which sounds like “naa” in English so she never got a coffee from me…

Thanks for posting some pictures. I work there in 1980, this was my first of 12 cinemas I worked at as an assistant manager. Good memories.

Wow, this brings me back some good memories. I worked there in 1979, I was the gate boy, hiding in my car at the exit waiting for people to sneak in through the exit to catch them. I also cleaned up the fields and got myself a 12 pack every day with the empty beer bottles I collected while cleaning. I had lots of fun that summer, one of the best of my young times. Unfortunately I have no pictures, all I have is good memories.
