I drove 100 miles to see the Fathom Event ballet Coppelia on Sunday, June 10, and after settling in with our popcorn and soda, an usher came in your say that the show was canceled due to technical difficulties.

We all received a refund, including our concession purchases, and free passes, but what a disappointment.

I’m sorry to report that despite the somewhat recent installation of digital projectors, the image on Screen One the other night (Ocean’s 8) was very dark and detracted from my enjoyment of the picture.

On the plus side, the food at the Burger Barn concession stand was tasty and the 20 minute intermission show of old drive-in snack bar promos was very entertaining.

I don’t think Tony tickets are actually offered for sale to the general public, but I could be wrong…

The only unanswered question is whether we should smoke a little something before seeing the movie.

I can’t imagine the screen at the Alamo Drafthouse is all that big.

Odd that the Argyle Theater website has no photos of the theater.

I wish I had snagged some of the photos off that blog before it went defunct.

Mike (saps) commented about South Station Cinema on Apr 8, 2018 at 9:49 pm

Reposted from another site (this was not written by me nor was it my experience):

“A year after graduating, dammit, the Adonis closed before I got to visit.

“However, the new downtown, all-male South Station Cinema opened. I was 18-19 at the time. This was also around the same time when Linda Lovelace and her movie, "Deep Throat” was a huge hit at the Pru Cinema (short for Prudential, near Copley Square). It was then that I knew that if sex on screen between straight people (yes, I saw Deep Throat) was at the Pru, I figured that sex between men must have happened at the Adonis and now at South Station with the “All Male Cast.”

“It took me a while to get up my nerve, but one day I decided to pay a visit to the South Station Cinema. OMG, it was amazing. I was nervous, scared and hugely turned on. The sex on screen with men-only was more than I imagined. And then this gentleman movie attendee lured me into a corner. It didn’t take much to persuade me. We got busy in no time — after thinking about it for years, I was finally having sex with another guy. There were fluids everywhere, but I didn’t care. I had reached nirvana.”

To echo bigjoe, who the hell is going all the way to the West Side Highway to see a movie for $18.50, with no bargain matinee prices, that they can see anywhere else in town for half the price…?

And no masking, to boot…!

I wish there was a way to bookmark the pages that contain the lists and dates of movies that played here.

Phantom Thread was one trippy movie, it must’ve looked sensational in 70mm

The Kings is the name of one of the auditoriums at the AMC Lincoln Square.

Now, if only we could see it at the Capitol or the Rivoli or the State or the Criterion or the Strand or even the Ziegfeld, all would be right in the universe…

If I recall correctly, there are three theaters on the ground floor: two small porn rooms and a larger one that plays cable tv.

But isn’t 70mm the size of the film stock and not related to screen size?

There are a couple of quick exterior shots of this theater on Hotel Impossible, season 8, episode 13.

I meant to research that a bit — but from my memory, didn’t Larry Hart see Garbo’s Camille, which was released in 1936 and was not a silent picture. The 1921 silent Camille starred Valentino and Nazimova…

It’s a little weird that it opened at both the 5000+ seat Capitol and the 599 seat 72nd St. Playhouse.

(By the way, it’s a little annoying that the search feature is so specific that it took me three tries to locate the 72nd St. Playhouse because I didn’t have the name exactly right.)

And MSC77, why don’t you put the Planet of the Apes ad on the 72nd St. Playhouse page also. Thanks in advance.
