With the destruction of the last of the Downtown movie palaces in the 1980s, what was once just an average neighborhood theater became the city’s premier cinema. The 1936 art deco movie palace—with 1,500 seats it’s the city’s largest—now shows blockbusters and would-be blockbusters. Not everyone applauds the curved screen, originally installed in the 1960s for Cinerama movies.
