AlAlvarez commented about Paris Theatre on Jan 21, 2006 at 6:06 pm

You have to hail the film buyers of the Paris. They booked the classics before anyone knew they were classics. This is, without a doubt, New York’s primary “arthouse”.

The Paris filmography may by off by five days.

We play all films we can get our hands on. The public votes them out by not buying tickets. To decide for them would be bad business because audiences always surprise you. For those who think that it is unfair to suggest Salt Lake City has an anti-gay bias, the story below shows that the mayor thinks it does.

Yes jnj, I understand what you means. After all, only gays will see BROKEBACK and only Jews will see MUNICH and only African Americans will see GLORY ROAD and only Hobbits saw THE LORD OF THE RINGS.

I disagree. This discussion is about censorship in American today and the 1950’s style atmosphere of hate and religious supremacy. Of course a theatre owner can do as he or she pleases. The justification is what worries me. There was equal outrage (not in these pages) when theatres refused to show FAHRENHEIT 911 and THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST. I would question the motivation of any theatre owner who censors a movie then starts bible thumping to justify their oppressive decision.

jn, re-read your posts and open your mind. You have condemned your brother to death although he is still alive, have blamed homosexuality on his disease, and preached approval for the banning of a film due to a gay subject. It is this hateful intolerance that we and your brother see and you seem unable to. Have you no sense of decency?

AlAlvarez commented about O Cinema Miami Shores on Jan 14, 2006 at 3:15 pm

As manager of this place in the late seventies I was subjected to constant harrassment from city hall, local churches, the local paper and even the police. Among the movies this “island community” tried to shut down were LAST TANGO IN PARIS, BLAZING SADDLES, NASTY HABITS, THE EXORCIST and SHAMPOO. No banning efforts were successful for obvious reasons and the latter wasn’t even playing at the time but the local stupidity was profound.

At the theatre we laughed off the “island community” slogan to mean “no Blacks, no Cubans”.

A sad chapter in the history of South Florida, Miami Shores was a racist vacuum of Christian fascists in the late seventies which destroyed this ABC Florida State theatre and forced it to close. The subsequent “arthouse” attempts were also undermined by a community that demanded Disney and then didn’t but then didn’t show up.

When I think of censorship killing a theatre, Miami Shores is never far away in my memory.

AlAlvarez commented about Loew's Westchester on Jan 14, 2006 at 3:06 pm

This closed as a General Cinema house when Loews sold many of its Florida locations to GCC. GCC did a hasty and sloppy twin job that made for two long and awkward auditoriums. The seats were adjusted so some did not totally face the screen. The site drew crowds mainly from Coral Gables and the University of Miami, hence the possible confusion. For years it was booked day and date with the Loews 167th St. Twin in North Miami Beach. It hosted an exclusive long run of MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL. THE GODFATHER, THE GREAT GATSBY, THE WAT WE WERE, and THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE all played here.

AlAlvarez commented about AMC Empire 25 on Jan 14, 2006 at 2:09 pm

They just listed the two locations under the large LAFFMOVIE banner in the ads. This is not uncommon in many markets where the chain name is the name of every theatre they own. I guess being guaranteed a laugh had huge appeal during the war years and there would have been comfort knowing these sites were there anytime you needed one.

AlAlvarez
AlAlvarez commented about AMC Empire 25 on Jan 14, 2006 at 1:01 pm

The Laffmovie appears in the New York Times in August 1942 and disappears in 1947.

A second Laffmovie opened In December 1942 on 46th Street. That one advertises until 1943.

I want to point out that this website is really buggy, never responds and I have been trying to post this for several days.
Also, finding the Paris on this website has become a journey. Get your act together, this the Radio City music Hall of Arthouses and the damn Patis is still there showing movies! SUPPORT THE LIVING CINEMA!!!

AlAlvarez commented about Utah Theater Cancels 'Brokeback Mountain' on Jan 13, 2006 at 7:09 pm

Vokoban,
I did a little research into “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”.

From the New York Times, March 7, 1968
“Police armed with riot equipment moved into a section of Hamilton (Ohio) tonight and quelled an outbreak by young Negroes who shattered store windows. Police said the outbreak was apparently the aftermath of picketing here earlier at the Main Theater by 10 members of the United Klans of America.”

From Director Stanley Kramer also in the NYT.
“The primary objection to “Guess who…” was the fact that the film was made in the first place…The problem isn’t the south at all: except for the smaller communities. It’s in the North, the site of the big city ghetto. And the film has been doing smashing business everywhere including Atlanta, New Orleans, and all points south…the seeds of the next revolution are planted during this one.”

No theatre seems to have been lame enough to ban “Guess who…”

I can only find one case where a Stanley Kramer film was banned. That was BLESS THE BEASTS & CHILDREN. That was at …wait for it… Brigham Young University, Salt Lake City. That film was banned for being “too real for our people”
(NYT Aug 12, 1971)

AlAlvarez commented about Utah Theater Cancels 'Brokeback Mountain' on Jan 13, 2006 at 5:00 pm

I don’t think anyone could argue those points. Some markets just don’t work with some films and some movies have no second run life. This is a mainstream theatre, a mainstream film, and a relatively major American City we are talking about. If the Megaplex passed on NINE SONGS, THE SQUID AND THE WHALE or even LATTER DAYS no one would have commented. Those films have a hard time at the multiplex outside of certain upmarket areas. This film is selling out in El Paso, Texas. Are we to understand El Paso is more sophisticated than SLC?

“No, I will never accept homosexuality as normal when it is going to take the life of my brother.”

Jnj, since this will be the first ever recorded case of death by homosexuality, I think we all know what name to call this.

Your brother has a good reason to hate Christians with you as a voice box and Megaplex to justify your sick lifestyle.

AlAlvarez commented about Utah Theater Cancels 'Brokeback Mountain' on Jan 11, 2006 at 5:51 am

Forget the gay issue. It is wrong for a theatre to moralize content. They should let the public make that choice based on ratings and reviews. By banning this film this cinema should now be forced to justify showing HOSTEL, and all the other sex and violence Hollywood epics it has shown. That is the price you pay for entering the slippery slope of moral hypocrisy. If this had happened on the coasts we wouldn’t be so suspicious of religious fascism. It is happening just were we suspected the apex of American stupidity might lie.

AlAlvarez commented about Utah Theater Cancels 'Brokeback Mountain' on Jan 10, 2006 at 4:49 pm

Since Salt Lake City and Larry Miller are so progressive and the Megaplex already showed the very gay CHICKEN LITTLE and RENT then must must only assume the obvious.

Larry Miller and SLC hate cowboys!
Boycott westerns! Boycott westerns!

Great memory, Ed! FRANCES opened at the Cinema One on December 3 for the one week Oscar qualifying run, then reopened at the BEEKMAN for Christmas. The BEEKMAN also often played move-overs from the Cinema I & II, Baronet and Coronet as all distributors preferred to open on that block.

Yes astrocks, I worked for Cineplex at the Fresh Meadows and then as District Manager for lower Manhattan and Brooklyn until the mid-nineties. I also lived over the Waverly for several years.

Forrest136, these lists are compiled from the New York Times. No, I don’t live in a library, but I have compiled some over the years and have a historical NYT online subscription through Proquest. It’s expensive but it’s like time travel at times.

Great guys! I’m a bit of film geek (guess we all are here) and I have compiled things like that over the years. I have most Manhattan Theatres. I will work on the later Beekman dates.

I have SONG OF NORWAY on VHS and it is painful watch. Its sort of like watching THE SOUND OF MUSIC scenery with polka tunes and no plot.

This was not the Fillmore East (also known as The Saint) although that location was also pegged to be a Cineplex Odeon multiplex at one time. That location was further south on second avenue near the Hell’s Angels headquarters.

The local authorities' reluctance to allow a second avenue entrance and the financial problems of CPO delayed the once active project until it died.
