The new marquee is DISGUSTING. If you don’t know its a movie theatre driving by on the LIE you wont now.

Talk about an opportunity to open theatres. All of the Bronx has only 2 theatres? We have 3 theatres just in Forest Hills.

If City Cinemas (who used to operate this) or another operator who could get good product came here they might make a go of it. Even though the days of the single screen are over, the neighborhood is painfully under screened. I ran this theatre many eons ago and hate to see it close.

This theatre never caught on which is strange since it became the only game in town after all the 3rd Ave closings. I wonder if the 59 St. East is going to get primo bookings now?

The balcony is probably still intact above the store in the auditorium.

Clearview is letting this place fall apart at least on the outside. The marquee is mostly burned out so the cram all the letters to where the lights still work. In addition a lot of their letters are broken or the wrong size.

Why have they never played the 70mm Cleopatra print?

RobertR commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Jul 9, 2012 at 5:36 pm

It would have to be a non-profit or a foundation, the weekly nut at the Ziegfeld is HUGE.

We have nothing like them here. The Film Forum programs great but lets face it the cinemas are tiny as are the screens.

RobertR commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Jul 9, 2012 at 4:40 pm

I used to go to the movies once a week but now maybe once a month because of the garbage product. I loved IMAX until they started making IMAX screens that were half the size of the original. I still travel to the Ziegfeld for the festivals or if anything of quality plays there. I have attended the theatre since it opened and have always felt the screen is way to small to really impress. I always hoped they would put in a huge wall to wall curved screen that could give us an experience similar to the Music Hall.

RobertR commented about Century's 110-Drive-In on Jun 19, 2012 at 7:51 pm

I watched an old flick on TCM called “The Marrying Kind” starring Judy Holliday and Aldo Ray. They go the Route 110 Drive-In and there is actual footage of the huge marquee. If anyone had this film on DVD it would be great to take screen shots.
