movieguy commented about Jackson Heights Cinema on Feb 9, 2015 at 9:34 am

It is said that the theater has closed down. It was the last remaining theater in all five boroughs built in 1924 to still be operating. The middle theater has 600 seats in it a large screen and a beautiful arch around the screen.The two other theaters to the left and the right of the middle theater or once the wings of the balcony. They have 230 seats each. Sadly I don’t know if the theater will ever open again. It needs to be converted to digital projection which is costly probably close to 150Thousand dollars. As well as the air conditioning and heating systems needing work. Because when I went to the theater in the winter it was kind of lukewarm and in the summer the main central air-conditioning did not work and they had to try to use a few window units to cool the theaters.

This used to be one screen and now is three. However the auditoriums are of a good size. The two downstairs auditoriums, seat about 250 each. The screen is a good size and the seats are all new. The balcony Area is a third theater. It is quite spacious with 250 seats, “stadium style” seating. The screen is quite large the biggest I’ve seen in A theater converted over into three screens. All new seats in the balcony as well.

movieguy commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Jan 10, 2015 at 5:57 pm

I went to see out of the woods for the 7:30 PM screening I New Year’s Day January 1, 2015. There was a very good attendance I’m happy to report. Looked like to me about 550 people. Quite a good turnout. Sadly they did not use the curtains. I want to find a manager after the show to ask them why they did not use the curtains, because they were used for the 70 mm showing of interstellar in November 2014.I had to hustle to make the train back home. Here a tip to save on the $15 admission. BJ’s Wholesale Club as well as Cosco or if you’re AAA member. You have the option of buying tickets for any bowtie cinema. They only cost seven dollars. Then when you bring the voucher to the box office at the Ziegfeld. You pay one dollar surcharge. So that’s $8.00 vs & 15 quite a savings.

The Gambler starring Mark Wahlberg and John Goodman. It’s a very good movie. A dialogue driven drama. Ignore some of the poor views and go see the movie it is well worth it. Screens at the Lafayette theater Saturday the 10th at 4:00 pm and 7:00. Sunday the 11th, at 4 PM and 7 PM. Final show in the one week only run, Thursday the 15th at 7 PM.

movieguy commented about "Bow Tie Cinemas Permanently Closes Bedford Playhouse" From Bedford, NY. on Jan 10, 2015 at 3:58 pm

This is a very nice place to go see a movie. It was a real old Playhouse from the 40s. I theater upstairs had a decent size screen and a small section of leftover balcony seats that you could sit in. The downstairs theater also was a nice size. Really hope they can keep it as a theater maybe do what Jacob burns does show art house movies. Bowtie also didn’t, renovate and put digital into the Mamaroneck playhouse. I theater back from 1927. Both play houses in Mamaroneck and Bedford should be used for movies or live events. Not left sitting empty or turned into retail or housing

I went to the theater and saw the night at the museum three Secrets of the tomb. The theater has a very nice look, the 50s style As it was open in 1947. Big screen, slightly curved, Sounds very good and clear. They are still running movies in 35mm. Studios still sending out some limited prints. But they hope to get a digital projector in the near future. They’re having a lot of live shows on the weekends, local bands. They are open Friday through Sunday at this time. Down to this great classic theater Great place to see a movie, admission price only seven dollars for first run movie. Concession stand lots of yummy candy, hot fresh popcorn cold cold drinks.

The hobbit battle of the five armies. Continues at the Lafayette theater and second big week, held over by popular demand. See it today at 1:30 PM, 4:45 PM, 8 PM. Come one half hour before, Showtime on Friday and Saturday nights and be treated to a concert on the mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ. Popcorn popped fresh before your eyes, and kosher oil, Coca-Cola products at the fountain. The experience of going to a grand old movie palace can’t be matched by any other venue.
