Renata Adler was the chief film critic for the NYT in 1968. According to an ad in the March 22, 1968 NYT for “HERE WE GO ROUND THE MULBERRY BUSH”, she also disliked “THE GRADUATE”, “BONNIE & CLYDE”, and “GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER” along with “PLANET OF THE APES”. She was fired in 1969.
The question bigjoe is asking may not have an answer. Sexploitation films of the seventies often issued a soft core version for the drive-in trade. How would anyone know when The Met switched to hard core versions for good unless they were regular customers or worked there.
Chilean Oscar nominee “A FANTASTIC WOMAN” just opened at the Walter Reade. Swedish nominee “THE SQUARE” is at the Elinor Bunin. The two Lincoln Center theatres bought a full page promo ad in the New York Times last week, so it looks like they expect to help fill the void on the UWS.
Define “regular” in the early 1970’s.
Showing Yiddish films in early 1965 along with a stage show, as the Anderson. New York Times ads.
The Trail opened in 1948.
alpine, if you try book a ticket on a day that hasn’t yet sold one, the first automatic generated option is G22, so that is the center.
The 39th Street Casino showed some movies in 1918, 1920, and 1921.
It showed movies in 1928, 1929, 1930 and again in 1934 as the Casino.
The opening ads for BIRTH OF A NATION state “all seats reserved”.
Streisand sure was, so maybe some in her audience did as well.
I suspect that in the era when audiences sat on the floor in front of the screen to watch “2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY”, front row at “FUNNY GIRL” was no longer an issue.
Vindanpar, you are correct. It seems the first six rows, for some reason, were deemed too close to be full priced for MY FAIR LADY.
So when was this the case here?
Vindanpar, you must have missed “EVITA”.
??? Your first paragraph seems to contradict your second.
moviebuff82, I am not sure how you define ‘arthouse’, but the Cinema Village, Quad, and Cinema 1, 2, 3 are all older than this. The latter having been the definition of ‘arthouse’ at one time.
This may have been operating as the LENOX in 1968 advertised for “Coogan’s Bluff” in the NYT.
“THE LION IN WINTER” played here for over a year.
Of all the generic multiplexes in the world, vindanpar pointed out this classic historic beauty as the target of shame. How clueless is that?
vindanpar, the historic lobby of this theatre alone is worth the listing.
ridethectrain. Try. Punctuation. Please.
Operating as the Santurce in 1959-1961.
bigjoe59, the studio announced an expected $110 million opening. That figure was low based on other recent Batman films opening at results much higher than that. The resulting $94 million opening is therefore considered a ‘stumble’.
