Circa 1981, here’s a photo of the Cinema Lobby with the game machines of the day.
I’m sure there’s a Pac Man there, and an Asteroids, as well as Donkey Kong. There were experts who were regulars, that knew the patterns on all these games, and would come in every day to play. There was a game called Defender, which was pretty hard, but I remember someone who could play it for hours on one quarter.
I’m sure there’s someone out there who remembers the red carpet, and the glass chandeliers in the Cinema Lobby. The photo is bright, but if you could see outside, you’d be looking out on the stairs that went up to the Jordan’s Basement Store, or the Roundup which was just outside the back exit from the theatre lobby.
