Get pictures of the Continental 6. It was a cinerama theatre It has a 30 by 100 deep curved screen. UA theatres saved it and added 6 more screens years ago. I sent pictures of it's sister theatre in Oklahoma City or whats left of it. But they are still somewhere in your in box.

Are you looking for things to do in Denver when you're dead?

Not to get nitpicky here, but while the Continental in Oklahoma City was a licensed 70mm Cinerama strip-screen theatre, it's copy in Denver was an official Dimension 150 lenticular (or rubberized) screen theatre.

The Continental added 5 more screens, not 6. There are already pics of the theater on Film-Tech if you want to see it. I definitely was a D150 auditorium... the D150 rectangular lens is definitely odd. This theater also had CDS digital sound back in the day. This is the only theater in Colorado that has played films in analog (optical and mag), CDS, DTS, Dolby Digital, and SDDS-8 all in the same auditorium. The screen is about 3 1/2 stories tall.

Make sure you get some pictyures of theatres while you are in Denver, Adam. From what I understand, Denver has lots of theatres.

I'm leaving town tomorrow ... I suppose I should stop working on this site update and print out some maps. And maybe booking a hotel and car would be a nice touch. [Uh-oh]

Well fun was had on the trip to Denver. Until we decided "Hey... we should go to Wyoming." At which point the rapid change in altitude sent me into dry-heaves and pretty much left me hugging the toilet, the side of I-80, the gutter in front of the Cheyenne library... where else? Adam was kind enough to not take pictures of my violent vomit spells, but I suggested that next time he should, it would be funnier.

I'm actually feeling better now. My sore throat I thought was just left over from the puking turned out to be strep throat... so thank you Penicylin!

I did take one photo ... you leaning against the car the next day in Parker, wishing the Parker Cinema 4 would stop spinning so fast.

Well he tried, but since Brad Miller and I are the same person, we can't be in two places at once. [Razz] Plus, he was in Wyoming the entire time I wasn't busy. And when I was busy he came back to Denver. That was pretty awesome. [Smile]
