"We actually started last month," Moyse said. "I hope this can become a monthly event. In August we started showing an old 'classic' movie in the theatre after the regular movie,' Last month we showed 'Grease" and next Wednesday night we will be showing "The Wizard of Oz" Moyse and the theatre are also rolling the prices for the classic movies btck a few years. "The price is only $5 for adults, children, and seniors. I see this as a great op- portunity to see a great old classic on the 'big screen,'" he said. Moyse said that modern inno- vations actually helped him decide to start the classic movie program- ming. "It first occurred to us when we upgraded our projection system that we could play DVDs or Blu- Ray on the big screen. At first we made this an employee only ben- efit and we showed 'Young Fran- kenstein.'" Moyse said that while the turn- out was good, in a theatre the The Avalon Theatre will show "The Wizard of OZ" next Wednesday as part of its new classic movie_revival program after its regular film screening. size of the Casino it still seemed empty. "We then decided to admit the public for a minimal price," he said. "Many of our people had said in the past how cool it would be to see some of the old movies again or for the first time on the big screen and'I agreed." The classic movie titles are chosen by the theater's employees, who vote for the movie of their choice. "We place ballot boxes throughout the Island Company offices with 10 movies listed from the genre of the month." The events seem to be catching on. "The first show with the public was 'Grease' and it probably had twice as many visitors as employ- ees," Moyse said. "I thought it was pretty successful since we did not have time to get it in front of the public other than through avenues such as Facebook and flyers on the movie poster kiosks." Moyse said he has already re- ceived positive feedback on the idea. "'From the people that have gone I have receivec nothing but extremely positive comments," he said. "I truly believe this will be an event looked forward to by the community. I hope to involve the community in the vot- ing for the movie, but I still need to figure out how I would go about it without involving a lot of manpower or time" The Avalon Theatre is located in the lower level of the Catalina Casino. It features first-run movies and seats 1,184 people. The theatre is 138 feet across and 43 feet high. Art deco murals by John Gabriel Beckman adorn the walls and cre- ate a glamorous ambiance.
