Oh I love that Hoyt's tour that just posted. Damn I love the doors on those auditoriums. I think when I get stupid and rich I'll have all my doors detailed like a cheesy 70's multiplex.

Scott is talking about the Hoyts Cinema City 4.

I hope we're still friends when you're stupid and rich. [Big Grin]

You know I could've tormented more people to send in their pictures with that one!

I know, but it was important to several people to get it available last night. I made a special update just for that.

At any rate, I have some installation photos from the Newport, Kentucky, and Gatlinburg, Tennessee, Imax theaters you can torment people with.

Yeah, but I bet they still get people asking which is cinema #1. [Big Grin]

It's too bad all the really cheesy 70's multiplexes in this area are closed down. I used to love going to the UA Northgate with the funky red and orange plaid carpet, wood-grain formica counters and huge chandeliers with the fake crystal beads hanging down!

I still maintain there was something in the drinking water during the 70s that made our entire population behave in very odd ways, affecting even movie theatre decor & furnishings. [Wink]

Either that or people were getting decorating hints from "Laugh-In"! Talking of 70's cheesiness, has anyone here seen the webpage for the Gobbler Motel? I'll have to see if I can find that page again. That place makes the Hoyt's multiplex doors look quite normal by comparison.

What's wrong with red and orange plaid carpeting for a ceiling and wall covering? [Confused]

It can't be "70's Fabulous" unless there is foil-backed wallpaper and wood paneling in the lobby.

(Where the heck are my lobby photos of the Kenwood Twin? ...)

At least by the looks of things, the Cinema City is able to keep in business by showing art films. A hint for those operating those types of theatres in need of a cash flow...

70s fabulous = Showcase! My location has theaters with green AND gold/brown vinyl seats mixed together, blue dotted carpet that makes your eyes go buggy when you try to sweep up tiny popcorn kernals and the whole teal neon theme.

I have an old uniform... powder blue polyester usher jacket with white shirt that had a thin-stripe navy weave, dark navy tie with logo all over it (women wore an airline stewardess droopy bow). And of course, navy polyester pants with a powder blue racing stripe down the side of each leg. [Rolling on Floor Laughing] They used the same uniforms from the 70s until the mid-90s. OY! But the nostalgic value is pretty cool...

There have been few decor upgrades to my theater, as far as I know. If you look up our stats, there have been many physical upgrades to the building itself. (5 screens to 15!) If you would like to see how it looks today, please email me through the website and I can hook you up. I'll grab my digital and snap a photo of the old uniform for you soon... [Razz]
