Mike (saps) commented about Radio City Music Hall on Nov 23, 2018 at 8:38 am

Actually, the “dynamic architectural projection-mapped media on the ceiling of Radio City Music Hall” looked pretty good, and in a way brought the show from the stage all the way to the third mezzanine more than once during the proceedings.

However, the wretched 3-D Santa ride was abysmal, looking fake and dated, and worst of all, each section of the three-panel screen had different coloring/brightness and the seams were plainly visible. It’s time to overhaul or eliminate this particular number.

The Liberty is not on the north side of 42nd Street, which is the view shown here.

Never mind, I found the information in the article posted above, to wit:

Let’s not forget that the original motion-picture house, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, was dubbed the State Theater during its construction — that name is still visible in stone above the marquee — but opened in 1926 as the Carlton Theatre, and was rebranded yet again as the Monmouth Arts Center, the name given upon reopening after a three-year shutdown in the 1970s.

The name State appears on the front of the building, near the top. Was this house ever called the State?

I saw a movie here this weekend, in cinema 9, and the theater was big and clean, the sound was just right, and the image was bright and clear.

Although one sentence is still very relevant:

“New 42nd Street found successful new uses for all seven of the block’s other theaters, but efforts to get the lights back on at the Times Square have fallen frustratingly short.”

Odd that there’s no mention of Agatha Christie in this ad for “Rene Claire’s ‘And Then There Were None.’”

This looks like the new Trans-Lux, later to become the Pussycat

Another vote for Cineplex Odeon. They really knew how to put on a show, even if their finances and leadership were a mess.

I believe these stages are now managed (owned?) by The Shubert Organization.

This theater should be listed as OPEN, which it seems to have been for a while.

Recent photos added.

And some history or description is needed.

Yeah, and a few pictures played there between its burlesque days and legit incarnations.

Well, since this theater has been closed over three years, and was torn down, I don’t think that it is still one of the most dangerous theaters to go to.

I don’t think there were several shootings in the 1990s, just one highly publicized fracas during Godfather III.

And this was one of my local theaters, and I never felt in any particular danger or undue concern.
