House on Haunted Hill, February 9, 1959

1959_0209_boxoffice_cover_crop I've been exploring 1959 copies of Boxoffice that have been uploaded to The website is extremely hard to navigate and its search engine is useless. However, Google does a good job of ferreting out articles.

One particularly interesting article notes that 554 theaters across the country reopened in 1958, many of them in smaller communities. Theaters were being renovated or upgraded to show films in Todd-AO or Cinemiracle (like Grauman's Chinese in Hollywood).

Top hit of the week? "House on Haunted Hill."

Here's a link to the Feb. 9, 1959, edition.
