Hi Ron! Marvin is correct. Raul Trellis had a stroke or something that impeded his speech so he was hard to understand, even in Spanish. Gino typed at the Shores. He claimed to have been the former speaker of the Cuban congress under Batista. Both were great men. All is good here.
Chris, I think you are a year early.
Was he an older Cuban gentleman? Rafael Bellestre?
Muvico man is back!
Now a Cinepolis Theatre, run by the Mexican chain.
Now the Cinepolis Grove, run by the Mexican chain.
Now back to AMC and eight screens.
The Eaton/Cherokee theatre was at 81st street and First Avenue. (address 1556 East First Avenue)
Could these all be the same theatre?
The Hallandale Drive-In was located at 831 North Federal Highway from 1949 to 1964.
Except that the 1998 story was pure hype and not only did the trailer not improve grosses anywhere, few left after the trailer.
BD, please do tell us more. This is lost history due to morality barriers.
GeorgeCheeksSr, if you scroll down on that site you will find your answer. Only peep shows co-existed on that block.
This site might help.
Does anyone know if this was Teatro Nacional in 1976 showing movies?
“MOULIN ROUGE” was exclusive only for two weeks. “EDWARD SCISSORHANDS” opened in the boroughs after three weeks, but the Ziegfeld run was a Manhattan exclusive for over two months.
bigjoe59, the answer might be “EDWARD SCISSORHANDS”.
It opened at the Coronet during the newspaper strike. “A WEDDING” was showing here at the time.
Under performing which theatre?
“Hard” ticket (if you’ll forgive the expression), was definitely the case in Miami.
I got in under-age by having my older brother buy my ticket in advance. Although the usherette did ask me for ID, she walked away when I asked her for hers. I think she was younger than I was.
As for the slow release, (if you’ll forgive…)I think it was Oscar driven.
Thank you for that, patryan6019. The elimination of X-rated films from historical context is one of my pet peeves. As is the elimination of THE BIRTH OF A NATION and DEEP THROAT from all-time top grossing films. It all seems like cleansing of things that the new researchers find distasteful.
The LIEMAX element, digital or not, is most evident in New York City where one screen is eight stories high and the one down the street is twenty feet high. Both charge the same price and are branded as IMAX.
