March 13 – On this day in Montana history in 1962 “The
World Theater” dedicated to “showing unique films from all over the world”
opened in Billings. One of the first features was “Tunes of Glory” an English
film starring Alec Guiness, who would go on to achieve fame as Obi-wan
Kenobi in Star Wars. Billing itself as
an “art theatre” there was a “coffee hour” before each movie, and the Billings
Art Association maintained an art display in the lobby.
