Happy Birthday Radio City!

NEW YORK, NY — This past week on December 27th, Radio City Music Hall celebrated its 75th Anniversary.


Roxy opened the doors to RCMH and called it the “Showplace of the Nation” and it was with an all live show. Movies with a show came later.

This is one of the leading Art Deco masterpieces and it is still with us and still in use. It was a very advanced theatre for its time. Huge pipe organ, everything about it was huge.

In the 90’s, I was fortunate to see a few revival films there, including THE EXORCIST, JAWS and SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. What a screen! What a place!
