As part of a three-part documentary that I’m making about my hometown, Newark, NJ, I’m making a section about the “lost” theaters of Newark. As a kid growing up in the mid-50s, I spent many hours watching movies both in the neighborhood theaters, the Tivoli and the Plaza, as well as the downtown Newark movie palaces.
I call the Newark theaters “lost” because not one theater that was operating in Newark when I was young is operating today. Some are still there, probably in some state of arrested decay, but many are gone.
I’m looking specifically for film, slides, stills, newpaper clippings or any information about the Tivoli on Orange Street, The Plaza on North 7th Street, as well as the downtown theaters: RKO Proctors, Loew’s State, Branford, Adams, Paramount, Little, etc. Please contact me and let me know what you have. Thanks.

To those of you who have a theater who meet the following specifications, please contact me at (remove the famous director’s name):
A theater that has run or has the capability of running dual-strip Tri-dimension films. This means having two sychronized projectors capable of loading 6000', a silver screen (doesn’t have to be stationary), capable projectionist, etc.
The information is needed for an upcoming article about 3-D movies and a free plug will be given to those who participate.

Does anyone know of other theatres that have been reused or converted by Urban Outfitters?

Up until the revitalization on West 42nd Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue, there was a porno theater called The Harem, located at what looks like where the BB King now stands.
I need some assistance finding out what The Harem was known as before its life as a porno theater.
I know it must have had a life before porn.

NEW YORK, NY — What theatre was located on 8th Avenue between West 50th and West 51 streets? I remember they demolished this theatre when they erected the Longacre Apartments. This was sometime in the late 90’s.
It was one block over from the old Madison Square Garden, which was demolished in the late ‘60’s / early 70’s and became the Worldwide Plaza and home to the Cineplex Odeon Worldwide Cinemas (now the Dodger Stages).
I recall the entrance as being on Eighth Avenue closer to West 50th Street. Please help me figure this out, its been on my mind.
Does anybody have the classic General Cinema trailer theme that can be downloaded into my cell phone?
Please reply to : .
Thank You Much

I am working on a 12-hour series for The History Channel titled “Mega Movers” which looks at extraordinary moves taking place around the world. I am currently looking for moves taking place between now and February 2006 to profile on the show. Specifically, I would like to document the move of a theatre – are you aware of any that have been moved or are to be moved in the next few months? If so, I would like to hear more about the move and when it is scheduled to begin.
Additionally, I am looking for historic, very large, iconic or just unusual structures moving before Feb 2006 and welcome your suggestions. Please feel free to pass my contact information along to anyone else who may know about other upcoming moves.
