The following was sent in by “Clark”:
Hi, my name is Clark and I am doing a school paper on the death of the single screen movie theater and I wanted to know if there is someone I could talk to who has a first hand account of being at the Roxy theater (the one that was located in New York City on the corner of 50th street and 7th avenue and had 6,214 seats). Also someone who might have a good knowledge of the Ziegfeld or New York City cinema. Thanks so much and love the website.
Go to the library and look for a book titled “The Best Remaining Seats” by Ben Hall. It has pretty much all the information you could possibly need on the Roxy.
Rather, I should have emailed him that, had I been looking closely…
Also book entitled “The Last Rivet"
Dorothy from Oz: Who is the author of “The Last Rivet” as I couldn’t find it on Barnes and Noble by title? BTW, there was a book written entitled The Making of Oz that might be of interest to you, Dorothy and say hi to Toto!
