CSWalczak commented about Capitol Theatre on Nov 7, 2012 at 12:51 am

According to this website, this theatre opened as the Auditorium de Québec with a beaux-arts interior; the original architect was Walter S. Painter. It was remodeled in 1927 by architect H. Laberge when the theatre’s name was changed to the Capitol by Famous Players. Another makeover occurred in 1935 under the direction of Raoul Chenevert; it was apparently that year when it became a full time cinema.

CSWalczak commented about Palace Theatre on Nov 6, 2012 at 10:17 am

Yes, the Nixon fell to the wrecking ball in 1975.

In reference to edblank’s comment about moviegoer’s sensing that the film would would be a long ordeal in a single confined set, that is, more or less, what director George Stevens wanted to do in order to simulate the time and tension spent in a claustrophobic environment by the Franks and the others in the “secret annexe.” If you go there (and I have been there), you will find it almost incredible that so many people could have occupied that small space (for many hours each day without speaking or moving) for as long as they did.

To heighten the effect, Stevens wanted to film in the standard screen ratio, but 20th-Century-Fox insisted that he use Cinemascope. So, in a number of scenes, he made the sides of the set appear very thick-walled to reduce the available acting space. The original running time was just a little shy of three hours, later cut down somewhat.

CSWalczak commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Nov 4, 2012 at 9:15 pm

Only time will tell of course, but if the current naming system being used by Digiplex holds in the event of an acquisition, the Ziegfield would probably become the Digiplex Ziegfeld on its website, in directories (online and elsewhere), and in advertising, but not with regard to the theater’s external signage.

CSWalczak commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Nov 3, 2012 at 11:10 pm

Bloomberg.com is reporting that Digital Cinema Destinations, headed by Bud Mayo, is considering making a bid for the Clearview theaters, especially if a partner can be found. Mayo founded Clearview in 1994, selling it to Cablevision five years later. This article seems to suggest that some locations would be sold off while others would be given digital and other upgrades and that more diversified programming would be offered.
