movieguy commented about Loew's Paradise Theatre on Feb 11, 2015 at 6:47 am

I think it’s a terrible shame and waste that the Lowe’s paradise is sitting unused. It was so beautifully restored. There had been some questionable management running the place and stories of them keeping money, That was owed to the performers and making off with money. But it’s a real shame is there’s a restaurant right next door and there could be a lot of good acts that would appeal to a wide range of people. Now he just sits and from what people posted here, the people who have it now are very unfriendly and unwilling to let people look around inside.

Rstewart. Thank you for your positive comments. Hope you can come up from the Lehigh Valley to see some classics this spring. I know the Lehigh Valley has a lot of older theaters. Like the beautiful Roxy Theatre in North Hampton Pennsylvania and the Emmaus theater in Emmaus Pennsylvania. As well the 19th St. theater.too bad none of them do classic films

It is very difficult to get 35mm prints now. Even in the last season that Pete and Nelson did classic films,in spring of 2013. It was getting harder and harder for Pete to get 35mm prints. He did run a bunch of 35mm, but he had to also run a fair number of DCP’s that season. If Pete Nelson had stayed on, they would have had to run more DCP’s as the years went on. I’m sure they still would’ve been able to get some 35mm. But not as it was in years past where they had every film, run in 35mm.

Plus the cost of getting a 35mm print is higher than running acDCP. The total cost of renting a 35mm print and paying for the shipping back-and-forth, comes to about $620. The DCP cost about $350 to screen.

Thank you for your thoughts and suggestions.advertising in the Journal news using social media like Facebook Twitter along with the word-of-mouth is really helping to get more and more folks into the theater. American sniper was our biggest grossing movie with the best attendance throughout its run, it’s set a record for the most people in attendance. They are far more than 10 to 20 paying customers for each of our classic shows this past fall.Nelson had a very good run at the Lafayette the years he was there. The reality is that the movie companies are making it much more difficult for a single screen theater Or any small independent, theater with even 2 to 4 screens.

That is the major reason Nelson decided to leave and retire completely from the movie business.

movieguy commented about Jackson Heights Cinema on Feb 9, 2015 at 6:34 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.
