Sallah Hassenein is alive and well and was, last I heard, involved with Todd AO. For years after leaving UA he was Managing Director for Warner Bros Theatres international based in the UK. He doubt he was ever connected with the Angelika 57.

AlAlvarez commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Feb 16, 2006 at 7:46 pm

Bill, there is a rather funny Variety article from 1968 reporting that young audiences at the Capitol often sat on the floor instead of in their seats for 2001 and that the film was doing well although advance sales were poor and most sales occured just before the performance. It also alluded to the smoking of a certain substance by a large portion of the crowd, an nostalgia element the Ziegfeld will not be able to legally recreate.

A cheerful “bon mot” to you Jews who think the cencentration camps are a bad thing. They are for your own good and please do stick to the subject of cinema preservasion and never mind those silly German films now at our cinemas and on TV. We do understand you and America will keep you from harm…

To TommyR above: Please re-read the story carefully and then watch the real news (not Fox!) carefully as well.

Landmark has nothing to do with ROAD TO GUANTANAMO and the U.S. government has no defense for having arrested and held these men for two years. No Jihad here. Just two Brits held in prison by the U.S. for two years without a trial, then released with no explanation. And no, the U.S. government does not get the courtesy of innocence before being proven guilty denied these men.

The only controversy here is the day and date release of another film.

It’s a shame that AMC hasn’t figured out that one of their 25 screens at Empire would would do just fine.

My compliments to Clearview for doing their best!…and to Craig for listening. It is easy to criticize, but putting this type of program together requires some serious hard work.

Clearview can only play the prints that are available so save your grief for distributor Warner Bros who really did this

Cheers to Clearview for bothering with MY FAIR LADY instead of some better print of RENT.

AlAlvarez commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Feb 7, 2006 at 7:29 am

I must contradict a previous poster. Having seen THE ABYSS at Radio City Music Hall for a premiere and then a few days later at the Ziegfeld (I am not a sadist, my office was at the Zieg), I assure you the sound at the Ziegfeld was far superior.

Having said that, Loews Lincoln Square is probably better and the only draw back is that most movies today record the music sound track too loud compared to the dialogue. When audiences complain, you lose the dialogue. This is common almost everywhere on blockbusters and is a print problem, not a theatre problem. I dare anyone to sit through EVITA at the recommended sound levels. The audiences would run for the nearest exit.

I saw a notoriously bad digital version of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA at Lincoln Square and that soundtrack was embarrassingly bad so I think the theatres sound better when things are exploding.

Due to the premieres, the Ziegfeld is constantly tested for sound quality. Admittedly, many sound technicians over the years have expressed their displeasure with the acoustics.

By the way, here in the UK we only insert intermissions on Bollywood films. Hollywood intermissions are forbidden unless it is already there on an older film. If you get caught, you could lose the run.

AlAlvarez commented about Beekman Theatre on Feb 2, 2006 at 7:49 pm

I think when Sony first took over Loews they also changed all the names to SONY for a while, so Loews has been missing from the New York scene before.

AlAlvarez commented about Mark Cuban asks "What business are theaters in?" on Jan 31, 2006 at 8:37 pm

If you check back issues of Variety going back to the 1940’s you will find articles about the lost art of movie-going etiquette, the growing restlesness of movie audiences, and “those damn noisy kids”. Since movies were considered working class entertainment prior to that, I suspect it is a common conceit to pretend this has not always been the case where mass entertainment films were concerned. You cannot expect audiences to sit quietly through WEDDING CRASHERS as reports show show they did not do so for THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY, BIRTH OF A NATION, THE GREAT DICTATOR, ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK, THE BLOB, AMERICAN GRAFFITI or ALIEN. What they won’t do today (and never have done) is buy obscure low budget specialty films sold through tacky gimmicks. No, not even on DVD.

Audiences still sit quietly for good films and get thrown out when they don’t by good theatres. Mark Cuban thinks he is so progressive by attacking audiences and theatres but he comes across as a crotchety old timer upset that kids have burst his BUBBLE.

AlAlvarez commented about New Metro Twin closes; Owner plans to scrap interior on Jan 30, 2006 at 8:40 am

The Metro survival has more to do with the trendy Upper West Side getting better all the time than its appeal. Aside from the stunning facade it is not much of a presentation inside.

By the way, in Britain we always question anyone taking theatre photos. It comes from years of terrorist paranoia and all public places will either prohibit this or at least ask questions outside the tourists spots.

AlAlvarez
AlAlvarez commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Jan 30, 2006 at 7:07 am

Bob, my comment referred to the fact that if the same film played with the tiny Coronet, the Coronet always outgrossed the Ziegfeld. If a film moved to the National or Warner, it picked up. It was always a battle to book the Ziegfeld unless an exclusive was on offer by a distributor trying to establish a film.

AlAlvarez commented about New York Theatre on Jan 29, 2006 at 7:56 pm

I look forward to it, Warren. I think it may be a true lost treasure and the kind of place this site truly was meant for. I do have an article somewhere about a fatal fire at the New York Theatre but perhaps it was a different location. I will try to dig it up.

AlAlvarez commented about New York Theatre on Jan 28, 2006 at 9:47 pm

Does anyone know anything about the Loews New York (Bdwy & 45th St)? It was showing movies full time by 1916 and apparently burned down the year this one opened. It had a roof garden advertised as the “New York Annex” that showed staggered showings of the film below, making it, in my book, the first twin theatre.

AlAlvarez
AlAlvarez commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Jan 28, 2006 at 6:12 am

Bill, you are probably right. I have a small gap in THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL period (newspaper strike, I think) and those 1986 double features were a Kirk Douglas/Burt Lancaster prelude to TOUGH GUYS that may have included even more titles for a day or two.

AlAlvarez
AlAlvarez commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Jan 28, 2006 at 3:25 am

The Ziegfeld history has always been straddled with the legacy
of being an off-the-beaten path pseudo movie palace that opened
at just the wrong time.

It was the last choice run for many distributors and has survived thanks to the creative programming and massive efforts over the years of the Walter Reade Organisation followed by equal support from Clearview and, yes, even Cineplex Odeon who insisted on always keeping it open.

Contrary to popular opinion, New Yorkers have never truly supported the Ziegfeld, preferring to see their movies elsewhere when possible. The theatre was often out-grossed when playing day and date with a Broadway house or the upper east side.

It is ironic that the demise of the Broadway palaces is what allowed the Ziegfeld to survive, mostly thanks to exclusive engagements for which it would never have been first choice.

Straddled in its early days by huge overhead including three projectionists on 70mm and a full time stagehand (there is no stage), the theatre often closed between movies rather than incur losses.

That glorious curtain so many of you love was often the source of grief. Many a sold out show was refunded over the years when the damn thing simply wouldn’t rise. Due to its weight, it was practically impossible to run manually. Hence, it is often left open at all times.

The choice location for many movie premieres, the promoters were forced to hire extras to form the crowd of gawking fans outside when not enough celebrity hunters bothered to find their way to 54th Street.

Between the opening weeks of big film exclusives the Ziegfeld had several weeks of tumbleweeds going through its now seemingly massive seating.

Won’t digital restore the experience without having to restore actual 70mm prints? It seems to make IMAX redundant as well, since it can blow the film up as much as you like without losing clarity and the sound is as good as your theatre system.

I think this is the reason why no one is too concerned.
