'Spartacus' at Westview, not Senator


The restored version of the 1960 "Spartacus," starring Kirk Douglas, will play the Westview Cinema, rather than the Senator Theatre, as was originally announced. The film opens tomorrow.

Tom Kiefaber, owner-operator of the Senator, said he decided not to show the film because the studio was not releasing it in 70mm. George Brehm, owner-operator of the Westview complex, said that the film will be shown in 35mm, in "one of our big theaters, and with Dolby sound will look and sound exceptionally good."

Kiefaber, meanwhile, will continue with his 70mm festival at the Senator, featuring revivals of classic films. "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Silverado" are among the titles he is considering.
