While I know it may sometimes be difficult to get, I wish more photos of the interior of the theatres should be posted on Cinema Treasures.

ERD commented about Huffington Post lists 10 most beautiful US theaters on Oct 27, 2010 at 7:02 am

I agree with the above posts, what criteria did they use to make their choices? I don’t think they’ve checked out all the theatres that were restored in the U.S.
Also, why aren’t interior photos of the theatres shown.

At least someone fixed up the facade and made it presentable. It looked so neglected before.

Antiquelover, thanks for posting your photos of the former Loew’s 46th Street auditorium. I remember when it was in decent condition. I, and am sure other members, would enjoy seeing more pictures of the stage and proscenium arch. It’s like seeing the ruins of an entertainment era that is gone.

I have signed the petition and passed it on to friends. What a shame it would be to lose the Winter Garden Theatre.

How lucky we are to still have this beautiful edifice to enjoy.
The Louisville Palace theatre is absolutely magnificent.

A unique and beautiful interior and exterior. I am glad the Avalon theatre is so well maintained.

ERD commented about Loew's 46th Street Theatre on Oct 29, 2009 at 12:27 pm

The 46th Street interior would cost a fortune to restore. With the neighborhood extremely Hasidic. To be realistic,the former theatre will never reopen as an entertainment edifice. That,unfortunately, is definitely a thing of the past.

The Cinema North Corporation has ceased operations. The Johnstown Movieplex 9 is closed. The Manager of the Pyramid Mall, where it is located, hopes to get another movie chain to take over the building.

The photo is from 1976 since that is the date the movie on the marquee was released.

Uniquely beautiful! I am so glad this theatre has survived.

ERD commented about Schine Holland Theatre on Aug 25, 2009 at 6:44 am

What a beautiful and interesting interior. I am very glad the Holland is being restored. The Schines built many wonderful theatres. From what I read, the Schine brothers were very decent people.

From the photos I just saw of the theatre, the Midland is beautiful. I’m glad it is back in use as an entertainment center. Kudos to all those involved in the wonderful restoration.

ERD commented about Radio City Music Hall on Aug 9, 2009 at 6:46 am

With the huge costs of producing shows, producers want a sure thing.
It seems we live in a complex & technical age where creativity and imgination are secondary to profit.

ERD commented about Radio City Music Hall on Aug 8, 2009 at 8:08 am

After listening to the 1978 Nativity segment several times, I personally found the music to be better arranged and much more inspiring than now. I remember the stage shows from the 1950’s through the 70’s. Although only about 45 minutes long, it had a showmanship element that is missing today.

Leonidoff’s stage presentations were so distinctly special! Like most of Roxy’s staff, he was extremely talented.

Thanks for posting the audio clip, DJF7, extremely enjoyable. It brought back many wonderful memories of the MUSIC HALL. Will enjoy hearing more when you add more.

My cousin lived further up on Garth Road. I use to pass the theatre many times. I remember going there back in the 1990’s. Bob Miller gave excellent info.

ERD commented about Radio Theatre on Aug 1, 2009 at 3:52 pm

Royal was etched on top of the original facade of the building, so I believe that was it’s original name. The building is on the corner of forty-first street and thirteenth Avenue, so it could not have been the Amoranth theatre which is listed as being on forty-second street. That place must have been a short lived theatre. It is the first time I ever heard it mentioned.
