It seems weird (and a little sad) to hear about “both” Times Square theaters…
Of course between them there are 38 screens, but still…:(
You’ve gotta have glorious Technicolor,
Breathtaking Cinemascope or
Cinerama, Vista Vision, Superscope or
And Stereophonic sound.
But maybe they could delete some of their comments every now and then…
It did seem wide…
Saw my first James Bond movie here — Live and Let Die — and have been a lifelong fan ever since. My sweetheart and I (ah, young love) took the HART bus from Northport, and I had no idea what to expect. In a word, wow! I remember the theater was big and square, with no balcony, but I did return here many times in the ensuing years.
After you few have your private conversations about Dolby at the Paramus and heaven knows what else, can you please delete your comments? They are cluttering up this page with, imho, irrelevant and tedious chatter that is of little interest to the rest if us.
Intro should mention that The Sunrise Multiplex Cinemas was closed January 19, 2015.
I wonder if the Showplace was significant enough to warrant a full list… The single-screens Ziegfeld and Astor Plaza often had exclusive engagements and very long bookings, while the Showplace (if I recall correctly) was more of a neighborhood house playing day-and-date with many other theaters
Jumping Jehosaphat, who the hell cares.
Go and find out. And make sure you report back here. Not.
The last time I passed by the marquee was in lousy condition — bulbs out, crawl not working…
That is an amazing list. I am astounded at how many movies I remember seeing at this house. Damn, what a loss…
How about reposting it now? So we don’t have to dig through the archives….
I guess you would choose the version you’d want to see based on how long a nap you needed…
On its website Regal says a new multiplex coming here in 2017. link
What’s that burlesque theatre on Irving Place and 13th street, seen in the first photo…?
There is now a construction fence around the entire building and adjacent parking lot.
Spring question: Would you rather have roses on your piano or tulips on your organ?
The “A Chorus Line” ad shows the original New York engagements, but I cannot make out which theaters it was playing at…
EbertFest 18 now underway… http://www.ebertfest.com/PDFs/EbertfestFinalSlate2016.pdf
This is where I saw the Robert Redford picture The Hot Rock way back in the 20th century.
Next week I’m seeing Olivia Newton-John here in concert; I wonder if any of the old place still exists…
I passed here yesterday and was sad to see the sign was finally gone
There is paper covering the front doors and a “Asbestos abatement” notice taped to the glass. There is an opening in the paper and I looked and saw dozens of theater seats piled in the lobby.
The adjacent parking lot is closed and there was a dumpster and a crane next to the theater; a worker there said they were removing the stage house roof (although he didn’t call it that…lol)
The beginning of the end.
Photos of the “progress” would be appreciated…
For what it’s worth, the article says “All three of the films will be presented in their 1997 re-release format.”
