February 1, 1967Doctor Zhivago, which opened June 30, 1967, played for seven solid months at the Rialto in an exclusive roadshow engagement. It finally stepped aside for only one of two movies filmed in D-150 (a variation of Todd-AO designed to look better on deeply curved Cinerama screens which were still quite numerous at that time). The other movie in D-150 was Patton. After the Rialto closed in 1968, the old Cinerama screen was moved across the street to the United Artists, and though for years it proudly called itself 'a D-150 Theatre,' it showed neither The Bible or Patton. I don't know who went to 'gala premieres' in Louisville. Possibly important members of city government? Certainly not Ava Gardner. She told a reporter she hated being at the world premiere.
