Great team work, guys!
I show that the Hamilton stopped showing movies in March 1965 and that NONE BUT THE BRAVE and ESCAPE BY NIGHT may have been the last features.
It appears that aside from rounding up Japanese Americans and taking them to Ellis Island and closing the Nippon Club in Times Square, the other shows went on as normal.
SKYLARK with Claudette Colbert and Ray Milland was the movie.
Harry James and his band along were Ray Bolger was the act.
Mikeoaklandpark, your thinking about blind people not going to the movies is the reason for this lawsuit. People with closed minds make disabled people’s lives impossible and Audio Description IS ALL ABOUT LEGALLY BLIND PEOPLE GOING TO THE MOVIES.
Although I agree that AMC is getting a bum rap from disability groups who are ignorant of the economic reality of buying and using these systems, the posters on this site going on about liberals are clueless of the real issue; The fact is that millions of senior citizen movie-buffs have stopped going the movies because they can’t hear or see as well as they used to.
Subtitles and Audio Description bring the cinema experience back for many in a retirement destination like Arizona.
If only liberals are the ones fighting for this, then thank god someone still has a brain left.
Andy, the Empire will outgross most West End sites due to their prices but the results do not reflect the excellent presentation they provide in the big screen. At least not yet.
Insignificant to the point of “off EDI” and no one knows what “THX means anymore” best describes this run, Andy.
BLONDES doubled BAND WAGON’S total take in national distributor rentals according to Variety estimates at the time. Of course, the Roxy seating capacity may have changed the NY numbers.
If you have to wait until the new theatres pull the film in order to play it, you will run into the DVD release competition.
According to the NY Times (July 25, 1973) the Avon 7 was raided as part on an eleven theatre crackdown on porn. The film MONICA, DAUGHTER OF MONA was confiscated and Raymond Fernandez, also manager of the Cine Lido, was among those arrested.
The rating system avoids non-industry censorship and Theatres ignore it at their own risk.
In the US rating were done by each community as resulted in stupid and racist decisions in places as diverse as Salt Lake City, Baltimore and Memphis.
In the UK, since it is a law, theatres can easily lose their license to operate if the local council feels they are ignoring teh classifications.
Anyone who thinks ratings serve no purpose should do a history check on the American Films censorship shambles when the Catholic Church made themselves the last word and when movies were banned in the UK because they might offend the Queen.
Wow! Thanks, LM. My mother says that is the very one her brother snuck her into for free when he was manager.
I am not sure if it is still there.
LM, have you run into a Cine Victoria in Havana? I belive one of my uncles was manager in the 50’s.
I obviously agree with Ed, although I am not as eloquent or patient.
I think Cinema Treasure needs to question the validity of those members who spend more time intimidating others than contributing to sites.
I appears to be the sound of one hand clapping and my suggestion was therefore autoerotic.
AMC has these movie money cards that debit the amount at each use. I suspect homeless people get these from charities who fear giving out cash to alcoholics and drug addicts.
Every time I have been to this theatre I have found bag ladies and eccentrics around (one brought had a cat in a bag) although they were probably not homeless.
Thanks Bob! I had not noticed.
I remember using real butter at Cineplex Odeon. Post Garth Drabinsky we shifted to buttery flavored chemical and started charging extra for it, a stupid customer service fiasco that the local press rightfully had a field day but wrongly at the employees expense.
The Toronto boys couldn’t care less.
Child St., if you have a multi-regional DVD you can order these from Spain. If not, Maraka Video from Miami carries several titles and some non-regional versions can be found on ebay from questionable Latin American sources.
Some VHS versions are also available.
Jkane, prophetically advertised as THE FIRST ROGER CORMAN FILM FESTIVAL it was a precursor to the Kips Bay’s exclusive first run of “GAS”, starring Country Joe and the Fish.
JKane, according to the NYT, the Roger Corman festival ran in early 1971 at the Kips Bay.
I am happy to report that Steve appears to be doing just fine.
Ace, I have the book and can send you a scan if you write to me at:
??? I thought it was Steve C.’s brother who passed away.
