Weird that the Times spelled the name of the picture wrong, namely “Hannie Caulder” which apparently played one week here, the theater’s last, from May 24 to May 30, 1972…

Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen just completed a week’s worth of shows at this theater. Looking good…

I believe the “New Embassy 46th Street” is the Victoria, not this Embassy.

Paul, I’m enjoying your posts, but please don’t use all capital letters; it makes it hard to read…

It is now a Dollar Tree, although I wish it were a dollar theater instead.

I posted two ads for The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm in the Photos section, one for the Cinerama run and one for the neighborhood non-Cinerama run…

Yes, Ben, please do that. Bright and clear and close-up where possible. Don’t forget to edit them before posting (cropping, lightening, centering, etc.) for best results.

Since #2 Regal has about 7,307 screens in 564 theaters (compared to AMC’s 8,200 screens in 661 theatres) I guess you prefer Burger King…

It’s amazing (or not) what $93 million can do…

I wish I knew as much about classic movie houses then as I know now. I would have made it a point to visit every single remaining one a least once. And the ones I really did the visit over the years I would have paid closer attention to, savoring the experience.

That said, I knew enough by 1987 to be at the last show of the upstairs Loews State 2 so that I could get one last look at the proscenium, ceiling, fixtures…which I did indeed savor …

The apostrophe moved over to “its” and so now it too often auto corrects to “it’s” even when you don’t mean it to…

Orlando, you have shown yourself over the years to be a true movie theater lover, historian, preservationist, and restorer, and that’s only scratching the surface. And you’ve been a valuable asset to this site.

So please delete your intemperate response to a paying patron’s experience, rethink your answer, and post again in the cool light of day.

Was the delay in seating due to slow security check-ins?
