Did anyone else attend Friday night silents accompanied by Bob Vaughn on the Mighty Wurlitzer at San Francisco's Avenue Theater?

I saw many silents there in the early 1980's and possibly before(maybe in the late seventies?) Lot's of MGM films some of which were Nitrate prints. There was some talk that the main projectionist Rick Marshal(since deceased) was the Zodiac killer. There's still some talk online about him. The last time I saw him was in the early 1990's when he was working at The Stanford. He's depicted(along with Vaughn) in the Robert Graysmith book and subsequent film.
Sometimes on Sat. early sound films would be played("Check & Double Check", "King of Jazz","Hello Everybody",etc.)

I remember reading on the archives on zodiackiller.com that even Vaughn was considered a suspect by some.
