After the new year, theater management gave out discounted 90-cent passes to public and parochial school students. On the first Saturday morning after the passes were in circulation, Jan. 12, 1957, police found what they later estimated as 10,000 youngsters downtown. They wanted to see the parting of the Red Sea — and Charlton Heston as Moses, Anne Baxter as Nefertiti and Yvonne De Carlo as Sephora (long before she appeared as Lily Munster). There was a hitch. The New Theatre, while a large house, couldn't accommodate thousands.
