NEW YORK, NY — The New York Post reported the closing of the United Artists East 85th Street last week. As the article shows, Manhattan screens have been dwindling for years.
(Thanks to Mark Edwards for providing the picture.)
This closure was a shame. Not living in NYC, I went there once. The article is correct in that it was not as nice as the Tower East. It was still nice. Long live the Ziegfeld, the Paris, the City Cinema 1, 2, 3, the “new” Beekman twin, the UA 64th St (former Gemini) and others!
Don’t forget that UA also has its name on the first stadium seating megaplex in NYC, the Union Square 14, which opened nearly 15 years ago and became a huge success.
This sucks. Maybe somneone will take over the lease.
