Princess - In 1958, the Princess became the 13th location in the country to be equipped for the new panoramic film sensation, Cinerama, which featured three projectors and a deeply curved wide screen. In this photograph, crowds gather for the premiere of the first film, This Is Cinerama, on July 22, 1958. The vertical neon sign alternately spelled “P-R-I-N-C-E-S-S” and “C-I-N-E-R-A-M-A.”
