Loews Jersey Screenings Are Back!
JERSEY CITY, NJ — If you missed the first film screenings at the reopened Loews Jersey Theatre in early 2002 (the first films showed since the theater closed in 1986), we have good news for you. The Loews Jersey has just announced a small part of its new fall schedule!
On Sunday, September 22nd at 3 p.m., “Danny Columbo” will be on stage with a 17 Piece Swing Orchestra, 6 Playboy Bunnies, Mike Gall, Steve Ames, and radio host and emcee Danny Stiles. Tickets will go on sale the day of the show.
To celebrate the 73rd anniversary of the palatial Loews Jersey, the theater will bring back the movies with “The Wizard of Oz” on Friday September 27th, at 7 p.m. and “North by Northwest” on Saturday September 28th, at 7 p.m. And coming soon, will be a Halloween film series!
Editors note: I was fortunate enough to attend a screening of “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” on the theater’s new giant screen back in May, and it was a terrific experience. The Loews Jersey is still in need of a lot of work, but it is a beautiful movie palace and the efforts of the group and its volunteers are evident everywhere you turn.
In addition, the opportunity to see great films in a true movie palace are few and far between in the New York area. Please come and show your support for this theater which was the winner of the first annual Theodore Conrad Preservation Award in 2001.
