The current feature, The Woman in Gold, like the prior feature, The Imitation Game, which ran for months, is not also at the AMC Sony Lincoln Center or on 42nd St (AMC Empire 25 or Regal E Walk). It is great the Paris can showcase a movie without it being everywhere else.

HowardBHaas commented about Regal Moorestown Mall Stadium 12 & RPX Theatre on Apr 20, 2015 at 6:34 am

Regal’s website has showtimes for what seem like 6 auditoriums. One strong possibility is that new lounge style chairs are replacing the regular luxury chairs in those auditoriums, because of great box office success at other theaters with that kind of seating. Another Philly area multiplex, the AMC Plymouth Meeting 12 also closed down 6 auditoriums at a time while replacing their seats.

HowardBHaas commented about Randolph Theatre on Mar 13, 2015 at 2:46 pm

Bertinphilly, I get you want to chat with others from that era, but not from then (child then),I learned from the weekend tuxedo reference & would be eager to hear about any movie premieres, stars, or anything about the moviegoing experience then. FYI, that’s primarily my Intro above. I also wrote the Intros for the Goldman & Regency. Any recollections about movies specific to those theaters would fit nicely on those pages. Thanks!

Main Line Times today profiles a restaurant reuse of the theater, which has further remodeled the fa├žade. It says the restaurant is taking advantage of the tall ceilings inside the 5000 square foot space & dining on top of the marquee. http://www.mainlinemedianews.com/articles/2015/02/19/main_line_times/news/doc54e36f2555a67721111016.txt

Cleopatra was actually at the Stanley Theatre, which has its own page and was a beautiful prewar movie palace (according to historical accounts, as I wasn’t there).

HowardBHaas commented about Lafayette Theatre on Feb 9, 2015 at 5:42 pm

I’m one of those reading these posts who has never been to this theater. I’d love to but it is a bit far from Philly. I appreciate that there are classics, and I enjoy readng the annoucements of the next new movie. Seeing the photos & hearing accounts makes it more than “special.” The Lafayette is an incredible “cinema treasure” and I’m pleased it remains open for people to enjoy movies in.

In 2013, I went from 70mm film festival at Seattle Cinerama to see a couple new 2k digital films which looked like crap compared to 70mm resolution, and notice Giles that crap is the more appropriate 4 letter word to publcly employ.

I saw Blade Runner in 1998 at the Uptown as part of Warner Bros 75th Anniv. 35mm, I believe the ‘91 directors cut. The movie had not impressed me on TV but it was awesome on the big screen.

Lobby, lower lounge & ladies restroom area featured in last night’s ABC TV Castle episode, pretending that this is the Opera House with Rigoletto being the opera. It should be the Opera House!

Did anybody see West Side Story in 70mm? How was the print? A week ago, I saw 3 of the European Union Showcase films- Black Souls (Italy, mafia, aud 1), For Some Inexplicable Reason (Hungary, comedy, Q & A with director after, sold out, aud 2)and Gemma Bovery (France, comedy, aud 1, closing film with post reception of dessert & champaign). I was told there will not be another 70mm festival, though there will sometimes be 70mm films.
