New Fabian 8 evokes memories of original Fabian

PATERSON, NJ — The name may sound the same, but the theater is brand new. The Fabian 8 has opened after some delay on February 19. This article recalls the original Fabian and contrasts what moviegoing experience was like in an earlier era with that most patrons expect now.

“We’re back with a tip of the hat to the past,” said John Halecki, general manager of Community Theaters LLC, pointing out what he calls the “Disneyland/Main Street feel” of the bright, blinking marquee at the theater’s front entrance and a clock that declares on its face “Movie Time.”

Hearing of the theater’s opening sparked a trip down memory lane for many residents, who fondly recalled the bustling movie houses of their youth.

I did go here this weekend, beautiful theater with great sound, projection and a friendly staff. We were in 8 for Brooklyn’s Finest, large theater, comfortable seats with retractable arm rests and a good amount of leg room, a few times someone would walk by the port window (part of it was blocked off, but they still caught the beam in the regular rows) and a shadow would appear on screen, this could get odd at a more crowded showing I’m sure.

I’ll write more on the theater’s page.
