The Biograph opened in 1972 with a party. In addition to the film fare it was known for its full tilt parties, usually after-hours. This handbill was for Lit Fuse Production’s third New Year's party, staged in the theater.

Lit Fuse was Chuck Wrenn and Terry Rea. For this one the glass windows in the lobby were wisely covered with brown paper to hide the goings on from people on the street. The bands, including Wrenn's band -- the Megatonz -- played in the large auditorium while various movies filled the screen all night in the small auditorium to bring in 1982.

Subsequently, on doctor's orders, this was the last of Lit Fuse's New Years Eve productions.
