The Stanley 
When I was a kid the Stanley was a Famous Players movie house.
I must have seen lots of movies there over the years.
The only one I recall specifically is Apocalypse Now.
Dolby Surround Sound would have been the latest rage at the time. 
The sound of helicopters moving from the back of the theatre to the front was downright startling.
And apparently memorable.
The Stanley is a live theatre now.

Granville St. @ W.11th Ave.

It's a great looking building. And Apocalypse Now's helicopter scene everybody remembers!
