In the new upcoming feature film “The Producers”, during the opening titles, they have recreated Times Square — like Steven Spielberg did in his film “1941” — of Hollywood Blvd.
The production has taken artistic liberties in some placements of theatres in the square, because of types of marquees and neon signage. This model is not a full model of the square, but of major parts and signage. The Palace Theatre is missing, the Victoria Theatre is now one block north of the Mayfair Theatre. The Beacon Theatre is now located where the Criterion was.
Before people start saying why did they change history or change what Times Square looked like. Be glad they included this very short (about 20 seconds) look back in time of what Times Square looked like in the past. It looks much nicer than the real Times Square of today.
