I saw a movie here this weekend, in cinema 9, and the theater was big and clean, the sound was just right, and the image was bright and clear.

Although one sentence is still very relevant:

“New 42nd Street found successful new uses for all seven of the block’s other theaters, but efforts to get the lights back on at the Times Square have fallen frustratingly short.”

That article is 2-½ years old, from March 2016

Odd that there’s no mention of Agatha Christie in this ad for “Rene Claire’s ‘And Then There Were None.’”

This looks like the new Trans-Lux, later to become the Pussycat

Another vote for Cineplex Odeon. They really knew how to put on a show, even if their finances and leadership were a mess.

I believe these stages are now managed (owned?) by The Shubert Organization.

This theater should be listed as OPEN, which it seems to have been for a while.

Recent photos added.

And some history or description is needed.

I was being sarcastic…

Yeah, and a few pictures played there between its burlesque days and legit incarnations.

Well, since this theater has been closed over three years, and was torn down, I don’t think that it is still one of the most dangerous theaters to go to.

I don’t think there were several shootings in the 1990s, just one highly publicized fracas during Godfather III.

And this was one of my local theaters, and I never felt in any particular danger or undue concern.

I’m heading up to the drive-in next week, does anyone know if the digital bulb is still as bright and clear as it should be? If they haven’t changed it since 2014 (as has happened at many locations, both hardtop and drive-ins) I will be disappointed…

That Strange Inheritance show was on again, and it was chock-full of info about this theater.

The sketchy introduction on this page needs to be rewritten with some facts and respect.

These movies came out in 1974; even the second-run Larkfield got them prior to 1976…!

I wonder if it meets the building code.

I went to several movies here this week and nearly all of them had bright clear images and excellent sound.

Like many, many AMC locations, the Fathom Event screening of Mel Brooks' The Producers was way too dark.
