When Beverly Connection 6 opened and for the first few years, three of the theatres featured Ultra-Stereo front / surround setups. (Center channel and surrounds only) Those Ultra-Stereo units were later moved to their Santa Anita 4 Theatre.

Looks like I'll be working at the semi-run down theater in attleboro, MA now, tri boro. I got the job offer last week and I'm going down to take a look-see tonight. Maybe if I take the job I'll be nice enough to send some pics to Adam. Maybe.

Oh yeah, btw. Change the damn picture, I'm not in Mani-what? anymore!!! Not to mention I have short hair now [Uh-oh] Adam, KEEP UP! [Big Grin]

The Westgate Cinema in Brockton (recently closed and slated to be demolished) still has a shadow box in the Cinema 2 auditorium (521 seats)that was never split. Dave W is correct originally painted White there was reflection onto the screen. Some time in the early 70 the shadow boxes were painted Black to eliminate the reflection. The shadow box gave the impression that the screen was floating and with the Blue screen dimmer lights on during intermissions it was quite impressive.

Here's a view of the front entrance to the Framingham Cinema, taken around 1980.  -

Found another existing GC Shadowbox at Dispon Theaters Eastern Hills, Williamsville, NY (Theater 3 only - 1 and 2 appear to have been split). Dipson it appears makes an effort to only play scope films in 3, however this week all pictures were flat, including the one I saw in Theater 3 - it looks like Dave's picture of the old Framingham Cinema (with new seats, thankfully).

It appears only the entrance/snack bar have been remolded, the theaters and bathrooms are pretty vintage.

I think I hear Scott Neff hopping on the next plane to Williamsville. Somebody should photograph it while it is still open....including the split.

Seriously. There can never be enough photos of theatres. MORE MORE MORE I say. And yes, if i had some money and time off from work I'd probably have arranged another trip somewhere... old cinderblock GCC's are crying for more attention.
