The Song Remains the Same - Theater Marquee photos

Recommended Posts

Yeah! The Fox Wilshire! That's where I saw it. In "four dimensional sound" or something. It was good and loud, very much a party atmosphere. When did the LP come out, wasn't it right before that? Same day maybe?

Did the movie do well box office wise.

It did well. Here's stats for the 1st week box office results in North America and UK - November 1976. It would run continuously in many cities across North America in weekly midnight screenings, well into the late 1980s.

Considering how low cinema tickets would cost then they are phenomenal figures. Thank you for posting the information.

Not where I saw it (The Futurist Liverpool)  at the first showing on the opening day Nov 10th 76 give or take a day. There must have been no more than twenty people in attendance. I spent almost the whole showing moving from seat to seat trying to find the sweet spot for the Quad surround sound..

Saw it at the Carnegie Theater in Chicago in fall of 1977,  just after my 11th  BDay. That's how I got hooked on Zep.  Wish I had a Marquee pic, but here's the ad.

This poster is awesome! Loved the photos of the theater marquees also. I (barely) remember when going to the movies was an event!
