My one big memory of this theatre is when I took two friends there for my 14th birthday. The 80’s 3-D craze was in full swing and they were playing a 3-D double feature of Alfred Hitchcock’s DIAL M FOR MURDER and Andy Warhol’s FRANKENSTEIN. I noticed in the newspaper that FRANKENSTEIN was rated X. My mom and I thought it must’ve been a misprint and she bought the tickets for us and arranged when to pick us up. We saw the Hitchcock film first. But little did we know what we had in store for us afterwards… X-rated, indeed! I never told my mom. And I don’t think my friends told their parents either.

Do you know if the Harbor Twin was actually equipped with 70mm projection?

@Chuck1231 — Get it right, Moviegoers! It was CONVENIENTLY located at 2300 Harbor Blvd at the corner of Harbor & Wilson, just two miles south of the San Diego freeway in the beautiful city of Costa Mesa. D'ya think I had the occasion or two to do the recording?

Remember seeing some good films here in the 80s and early 90s: Pete’s Dragon, Rocky III, Grease 2, Risky Business, Iron Eagle, Octopussy, A Christmas Story, Wild at Heart, Batman. The last movie I saw at this theater was Pulp Fiction. The place was SO run down at this point, very creepy. I don’t think they ever ran 70mm presentations of anything back in the day but the place was ok for its time and of course it was right next door to Chuckie Cheeses.
