As of today, the Narberth’s 2nd auditorium was converted to digital projecton.
John Carter lost money for its studio, Disney. Bigjoe59 might want to post his question as “News” since it doesn’t belong on this page. I want emails with updates to the Uptown, rather than on this other question.
I’d like to see a close up photo of that “art medallion” or whatever it is called, above the marquee.
Phila. Inquirer article today about it being taken over by another arts organization after having gone into the red.
Last night, I enjoyed at the Prince Music Theater an archival print of “North by Northwest” with a Q & A on stage before the movie of star Eva Marie Saint. I asked Vince Young where it was shown in original issue, and he replied that it was a big hit at the Stanley in the summer of 1959.
DEFG, are you saying all studios are transferring ALL their classic titles to 4k?What do you mean by USB 2.0? That doesn’t sound like a way for 4k films to arrive.
I doubt studios will transfer most classic movies onto 4k. I’d rather see 35mm than DVD or Blu Ray. And, I would rather see 35mm than 4k.

How old was this theater?
Silver, I’ve written many of the Introducions & haven’t noticed any of mine being shortened or disappearing. Even for LA, usually I (here in Philly) or Ken Roe (over the pond in London) take it upon ourselves to write a much more complete Intro than the skimpy one this one has. Only once did I see a movie here, in 1988, did I see a movie here, “The Milagro Beenfield War” in what my notes say was a large auditorium.
Email arrived that the theater is soliciting donations from the public towards the cost of $100,000 digital projector.
Again, BAD BAD BAD. People want to see historic films projected in original format, real film.
Article about refurbishment & restoration of plasterwork
here’s an article about reopening
In Philadelphia area, many theaters show classic 35 mm prints. in the burbs at Colonial in Phoenixville, Ambler, County (Doylestown), Hiway in Jenkintown. In Philadelphia, Prince Music, Roxy, and International House.
I was there to see a movie years ago. Let’s get photos posted of this nice curved, curtained screen!
I read elsewhere the quota is increased to 20 films from 10 films! There’s almost no products in US stores other than from China, so this isn’t the way free trade is supposed to work!
Bad! Bad! Bad! Studios could be more flexible. And, I certainly want to continue to see classic films projected in 35 mm.
