off the drive-in business again but this year plans to a four-screen theater and some hot new technical advances are making their off-season busier than ever One of the biggest projects In the works Is the Pacific Drive-Ins’ planned theater on the corner of Herndon and Blackstone The (dans can to a big four-screen complex— something new to Fresno but not in larger cities Pacific’s plan has already cleared the planning commission but is awaiting final action by the Public Works Department and City Council HARGUS ARNETT district manager of the chain says they are hoping to break ground soon but It will likely be January or February before construction can begin Arnett la hoping that the new theater can test some of the technical innovations that may soon revolutionize the drive-ins business One o f the greatest advances is in the area of sound Poor quality sound has been a problem ever since the outdoor theaters began The portable speakers were easy prey to vandals and often ripped out by viewers who drove out with them still attached Now several companies have developed a sound system that operates via your car radio "It’s the way of the future” says Arnett "the quality of tone is just so much better” PG ‘Another Man Another Chance’ "Another Man Another Chance” showing at UA Movies 4 is not a sequel to "A Man And A Woman” but it is a film much in die same romantic vein as the mid4Qs film Written and directed by Claude Ldouch “Another Man” tells a basically simple story of two people against a panorama of war-torn France and the American West hi the 1870b Genevieve Bujold adeptly cast as a young independent French woman who comes to America with her photographer husband gives a subtle yet striking performance As the man she is destined to meet James Caan portrays a gentle man with a love for animals and children In an age when most movies seem to follow a pat formula "Roseland” stands out as a refreshing and deeply sensitive film The story centers on one of those glittery ballroom dancing palaces — : a place where the older crowd gathers to flash back into better happier times But the central theme is loneliness and director James Ivory captures the spirit of Roseland beautifully in the lives of several of the “regulars” there There are no Mg name actors but the cast of Lou Jacobi Geraldin Chaplin Joan Copeland Don DeNa-tale Helen Gallagher Conrad Janis and Lilia Skala is first rate all the way Each one has a story and they v are blended smoothly into a revealing montage of cinema’ There are One such device was patented recently by Cinema Radio Core It transmits a signal to car radios from underground cables Pacific is currently testing another system in its Los Angeles theaters It is called Cinefi Sound and operates with existing equipment The idea is to attach a wire from the speaker post to a car's radio antenna According to Arnett a variation of the Cinefi system is likely to be installed in the new drive-in complex here ANOTHER PROJECT the drive-in chains have been working on is nothing short of amazing It is called a containment screen and it somehow enhances the picture for drive-in viewers while making it invisible to those outside the theater This costly project (soon to be tested in Los Angeles) came about partially in response to people who despaired of seeing R and X-rated scenes from neighboring residences It may be years before the containment screen is perfected but it will certainly be a welcome innovation THERE ARE TWO new movies in town that merit some mention “Ro-seland” and “Another Man Another Chance” are both welcome additions to the current fare Neither seems destined to be a big hit but in the slow weeks before Christmas they are most appealing It is a different role for him and one he handles well The film weaves their separate stories until finally they meet as the couple did in "A Man And a Woman” through their children Their relationship blossoms slowly as two people reach out from prior hurts to “another chance” with one another Although it is set in the West there is not much action except to a race toward the end It is instead a story of people and the ending will satisfy all the romantics in the audience The film is rated PG and is playing at UA Movies and Starlite North — Kathey Clarey ‘Roseland’ heartbreaks and happy endings and everything in between but always the dance goes on It is not the kind of movie that will keep you laughing or crying or on the edge of your seat There is none of the sex violence supematuralism or fast action that Hollywood is selling these days but there is a fine well-presented story that almost certainly will leave you satisfied and not oversold ' Despite Roseland’s acclaim by movie critics around the country its lack of commercial appeal won’t help So (dan to see it before it gets out of town Rated PG and playing at UA Cinema — Scott Tompkins JAMES CAAN GENEVIEVE BUJOLD r m c in jfilni written
