Does anyone know if the Titan Theatre ever promoted any of the films being shown as “in CINERAMA”?

The Titan Theatre only ran two 70MM engagements. In 1967 “Doctor Zhivago” and in 1969 “Funny Girl”. The only Cinerama houses in the Southern California area were the Warner Cinerama (aka Hollywood Pacific) and the Cinerama Dome and the Forum Theatre (Cinerama testing and home office in LA).

Thanks William. I’m going through a Motion Picture Exhibitor magazine that said it could show a Cinerama film. A number of theatres that were built in the 60’s were promoted as such but never did show and promote a film as being “In Cinerama”.

I recently posted pictures of Hope International University including the Titan Theater as it looks today (July, 2006) on Webshots. The album is entitled “Googie in Orange County”.

Listed at 2500 E. Nutwood in a 2/29/76 LA Times ad. It was a GCC theater at that time. The feature was the Who’s “Tommy”.

I was a student at Pacific Christian College (Now Hope International University) from 1977 to 1982. I have been inside the Titan many times and used the projection room as a sound booth for many speeches and theater productions. I worked my way through school as a sound and light technician for the school. The projection room had all of the projection equipment in tack when I was there. In fact during the fall of 1977, as a freshman, I attended the last feature film showing at the Titan. Someone at the college had some connections and they advertised to the student bidy that a “First run, major motion picture” would be shown in the theater free of charge on that Thursday night. They could not advertise what movie it was but assured the students it would be worth. The rumor mill started and everyone thought it would be a Disney movie. When the screen went black and then read “A long time ago in a galaxy far far away…” The roar from the crowd was incredible. “Star Wars” was the last movie to be shown at the Titan. After that I did sound and lights for live productions of “Fiddler on the Roof”, “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown”, the band Hiroshima and others. Reading the comments and seeing pictures has brought back some memories.
