Long holiday hours as the Times Square flagship of the toy mecca: http://money.cnn.com/2011/12/19/pf/holiday_money_toys_r_us/index.htm?source=cnn_bin
I certainly want to continue to see 35 mm classics not DVDs or Blue Rays projected on movie screens. There are many movie theaters, often arthouses, currently with classics programs.
Perhaps because links don’t auto link, I neglected in June to post this link here of current photo of auditorium facing stage! follow link to photo of lighting control panel, too
Great surround sound is important! And, yes, I’d hope for 4k rather than 2k for the main auditorium.
Giles, many people including myself aren’t bothering with 3D. As I will be in DC for a few days, I’m looking forward to seeing “The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo” at the historic Avalon. Interesting enough, “The Girl” will also be at Baltimore’s Senator. AMC’s website indicates the new “Mission Impossible” will be at the Uptown. I didn’t see “War Horse” yet online in DC, but since it is listed that it will be at the Ziegfeld….
I’ve not been in this auditorium. How large is the screen? Is this to be 35mm projection of classics?
Wow! That looks like a real gem.
I was at the 2:45 PM showing yesterday! Which showing were you at? Tonight, ABC TV news showed “The Artist” on the Paris marquee in a story about the film.
Excellent 35mm prints sounds impressive. At these classics showings, is the balcony open to sit in? Does the curtain open before the movie & close afterwards?
I also go to see the big screen, but I like to sit in the back! In Radio City Music Hall,the back or upper balconies are too far away, but in most movie theaters today (historic or newer) it isn’t that far away. Today’s stadium seated movie theaters have such large screens, I like the view better from the back, getting the whole picture especially for scope films, and not looking up at the screen.
If somebody can find a “proper address” we will post it. I don’t think I could find it online when I added this one.
Ed, I’ve alerted the site masters as to the spam.
As William pointed out, this has always been the Arlington Theatre so not sure what you mean by another one with the same name 2 blocks away, or your church references. There are “Nearby Theatres” linked here, FYI.
You are an architect? a decorator?
The current Arlington Theatre was built as a movie palace in 1931, not as a church.
Simon’s comment was so wonderful he spoke for us all!
Now showcasing “Hugo” in 3D.
The 4th Q 2008 Marquee of THSA states the “Freihofer-Stamper Theatres' Tower was constructed….”
What is an 8k restoration equivalent of? 35mm? 70 mm? Can 2k or 4k projectors adequately show the 8k restoration?
but it had a balcony.
Because there’s already downtown a stadium seated megaplex (the Regal Gallery)for mainstream movies & the Landmark F Street downtown for arthouse movies, it makes no sense to me to have movies in this arena, too.
For 3 years, the Epic Church, which now has 450 members, has services here
Sunday services at 9 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. are held inside a rented space, the United Artists Theater on Main Street in Manayunk.
“Well for us, the movie screen is like modern-day stained glass, and we are able to use video to help convey God’s message,” explains Pastor Kent Jacobs, who frequently wears flip flops, t-shirts and jeans to lead services.

Sadly, I’ve heard it is being demolished this week, but haven’t verified that info.
