The Richard Theatre was where I saw my first movie, as a child, and it was "San Francisco" starring Gable, Tracy and McDonald. I now have a 16MM print that I show in my owm basement theatre on occasion. I have no idea why I took such an interest in projection but it is still there and I have to admit little patience with some of the high school kids hired as operators, given a few days training and then turned loose in the booth. I detest mediocrity and that seems to be the norm these days!
