I’d rather think of Barbra Steisand and Don’t Rain on my Parade…

I notice in the ad posted from Sept. 9, 1948, in the photos, that Doris Day’s name is not mentioned in the ad for Romance on the High Seas, her first motion picture. Soon she would be a top star and still alive today, while Jack Carson, Don DeFore, Oscar Levant and Janis Paige are largely forgotten (but of course not forgotten by members of this site, lol)

Love the new photos but none of the theaters looks like it can hold 240 seats…

10 years ago they announced they were returning to film, with some live performances. What is the exact status of the place now?

Is there any original or recreated architectural detail in any of the auditoriums?

You’ve had six years to find the answer; time’s up…

Unremarkable, yes, but even worse, it’s unreadable as you drive by…!

Since this movie is nearly three hours long, how did they have a performance at both 8:45 and 10:30…?

Dozens of photos and renderings in that link to IMBY but I didn’t see any of the proposed new 47th Street entrance and marquee…

I have to laugh at a chain like Alamo, which has a strict no talking and no texting policy, yet meanwhile there are servers running in and out of the theater throughout the feature film…!

After a year-long delay of its original opening date, Nitehawk is finally ready to debut its new location inside Park Slope’s restored Pavilion Theater, across from Prospect Park.

A Facebook post on Nitehawk’s page revealed that the theater will hosts its grand opening on Wednesday, December 19, a date that PR reps for the company confirmed with Curbed. The official opening will be preceded by an invitation-only press preview on Tuesday, December 18.

Last November, Nitehawk founder Matthew Viragh told Curbed during a construction tour that various historic elements of the original theater had been discovered during the renovation phase. These included marble stairs underneath the carpeting, an exposed balcony, and ceiling panels.

Nighthawk wanted to preserve as many of these elements as possible and went back to the drawing board to incorporate them into the new multiplex, resulting in delays to its 2017, and later, its early 2018 anticipated opening dates.

Excerpt from a New York Times review March 31, 1966:

“Twentieth Century-Fox opened [The Murder Game] yesterday at the Lyric Theater on 42d Street. At this showcase yesterday, where a boisterous mob had piled in to see "Our Man Flint,” topping the double bill, the first twenty minutes of the little picture were inaudible. Suddenly, though, you could have heard a pin drop. Why? Well, there’s this guy who suddenly catches on to a plot by his pretty young wife and a blackmailing handyman to do him in. For money, of course…"

Thanks for those excellent photos, HomecrestGuy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a semi-wraparound marquee before — it’s beautiful.
