Moviemanforever, “1996?” It was demolished 1988.

When I was at Boston U School of Law (1982 to 1985), it WAS the largest screen in Boston!

HowardBHaas commented about AMC said to be talking to Chinese buyer on May 9, 2012 at 4:33 am

Yikes! The AMC Uptown in DC often has world premieres of movies, including ones about US military and attended by government members. In China, there is repression. Will the Chinese censor the movies in US theaters or abroad? Few people would be alarmed if a British or Dutch company bought a major US movie exhibitor, but a Chinese company?

Maintenance of the existing marquee, as I will mention soon in a Weekly Update email (freely available from Friends of the Boyd)

I’m sure it must be a wonderful book.

HowardBHaas commented about Another Manhattan theater bites the dust: UA East 85th Street on Apr 10, 2012 at 10:33 am

This closure was a shame. Not living in NYC, I went there once. The article is correct in that it was not as nice as the Tower East. It was still nice. Long live the Ziegfeld, the Paris, the City Cinema 1, 2, 3, the “new” Beekman twin, the UA 64th St (former Gemini) and others!

I had previously linked them, but today I’ve added to the photo section my half dozen photos of the ornate auditorium when still open, before gutted.

Yes, here in the States I’m watching now that Whitechapel episode. It also filmed in the theater’s back and in the interior, too, in the auditorium and stairway.

Regal’s website has “Stadium” in the theater’s title. How did stadium seating change the auditoriums' looks, screen sizes, etc?

Luis, do you mean info on proposed hotel? There is a very fine Introduction above with history of the theater.

Showtime TV’s “Brotherhood” series Season 1, episode 7 has a story plot with a fictional account of the saving of this theater.

As of today, the Narberth’s 2nd auditorium was converted to digital projecton.

HowardBHaas commented about Uptown Theater on Mar 22, 2012 at 7:12 pm

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.

HowardBHaas commented about Stanley Theatre on Mar 16, 2012 at 6:19 am

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.

HowardBHaas commented about This is DCP at the Film Forum on Mar 7, 2012 at 11:52 am

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?

HowardBHaas commented about iPIC Westwood on Feb 29, 2012 at 6:28 pm

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.
