Although he's on the side-lines these days, veteran exhibber T. G. Solomon has never been more upbeat about the cinema biz, as of March 23, 2004. Solomon feels that the embrace of stadium seating by movie-goers means that theaters built in rake-slope auditorium configuration will be successful for some time to come. "I predict stadium theaters will be good for at least 15 years," Solomon says. Solomon, who is being honored with the ShoWester of the Year, has experienced many twists and turns in exhibition, going back to 1947 when he opened drive-ins.
