If there was another operator between Holiday and AMC, it would’ve been brief. Holiday, I believe, operated the theater through at least 1980, and AMC took over no later than 1984. If anyone has a more precise ownership timeline, please post.

Holiday one and two had curved screens. Sometime in the ‘70s they showed cinnamarama which I didn’t see when it came out cuz I wasn’t born yet.
But first movie I had ever seen there was Poseidon Adventure
