I am so happy that I got to see the last 70MM film projected there “Interstellar”. The picture and sound was amazing. It is a shame this place couldn’t hang on.

Oh how i could visit the ziegfeld like my dad did back when big movies came out. It was very expensive when it first opened and it still was until they closed it down. No more Bow Tie cinemas in Manhattan anymore that are still called Bow Tie. That’s the state of moviegoing. There are other Bow Ties around the four boroughs and in NJ. I’d like to see the new management keep the famous Ziegfeld script and add in the ballroom name. I think it will get more crowded with all the extra space once it opens next year.

Not a day goes by where I don’t miss the Ziegfeld.

Opening paragraph of the NYTimes' review of Marooned:

IT seems fitting that a handsome, professional and future-minded space drama in fine color, like “Marooned,” should open a new jewel box of a theater, the Ziegfeld.

Bill, I really do hope that they keep the marquee and sign up when the new place opens, the building is a piece of history and touched so many lives

On the way to Radio City for Blazing Saddles on Thursday night, I passed by the Ziegfeld. Construction was still going on with whatever they’re turning the theater into, but it did still say Ziegfeld Theatre on the outside of the building, high up on the brick wall, and the marquee is still up. Maybe they’re going to keep them?

TCM did have an annual screening of classic movies for the rest of the country to coincide with their big festival, called The Road to Hollywood. Sadly, I don’t think they do it anymore. I was lucky enough to see All About Eve, To Kill a Mockingbird and Cabaret at the Ziegfeld, complete with Robert Osborne hosting special guests (Liza Minnelli, Michael York, Spike Lee), and all for free admission. Needless to say, all shows were filled to capacity.

I also saw The Birds in Huntington, Long Island, NY: Tippi Hedren on stage interviewed by Ben Mankiewicz in another sold-out show. Just the other night, Blazing Saddles with a live appearance by Mel Brooks sold out the almost 6,000-seat Radio City Music Hall. The audience for classic movies on the big screen is out there, and waiting for more events like these.

That is a wonderful idea! What is more important than the films themselves is the movie palaces that showed them. I am hoping that TCM will do an east coast version of their west coast yearly film festival. Maybe the Kings,Beacon,Radio City,175th etc. They rent the screens & projectors sometimes. Wouldn’t that be a thrill!!

Early tomorrow morning at 4am TCM is running this theater’s opening attraction Marooned.

By coincidence or design at 6:15am they are showing The Bitter Tea of General Yen, the opening attraction of Radio City Music Hall…

Hello-

i was a frequent patron at this theater starting with its debut film “Marooned”. to which in reference to Mikeoaklandpark’s post of 5/1116. from the very beginning this theater often closed for a week or two if no suitable film was available for a 1st run engagement but i never remember this theater ever showing films second run in the sense that they had exhausted their original engagement at other theaters.

No problem. I may try to do it myself but thanks for posting the 70mm engagements.

Movieholic…. I’m pleased you liked the Ziegfeld filmography and thanks for the suggestion. I’m afraid I have no interest, though, in putting together a similar filmography for the 34th Street Showplace. The best I could offer would be a list of the 70mm presentations that played there.

Nothing makes me angrier that this theatre had to close.

For someone interested in researching NY theatres, if you get a subscription to the NY Times, you can get access to the TIMESMACHINE which gives access to all papers from the very first issue to 2002. They frequently have discount prices.

Mike (saps) You’re probably right about the Loews 34th Street Showplace. For me, it would be fun to see the bookings since I went there more times than the Ziegfeld and Astor Plaza combined. If I can figure out how to do it myself I will.

Mike (saps)
Mike (saps) on May 18, 2016 at 6:18 pm

I wonder if the Showplace was significant enough to warrant a full list… The single-screens Ziegfeld and Astor Plaza often had exclusive engagements and very long bookings, while the Showplace (if I recall correctly) was more of a neighborhood house playing day-and-date with many other theaters

Movieholic
Movieholic on May 18, 2016 at 5:52 pm

Great job compiling this list too Michael Coate. Just a thought but would you be interested in doing one for the Loews 34th Street Showplace theater in Manhattan from 1987 to 1999 when it closed? If not, that’s okay, but thought it wouldn’t hurt to ask. I’d do one myself but have no idea where to start. Another user named King Biscuit posted the bookings from the first five years, 1981-1986.

Thanks, Michael. It was a great 46 year run, and we’re all grateful to you, Al Alvarez, Howard B. Haas and others for documenting it.

I didn’t realize in the beginning how many 2nd run movies they had after Marooned and how many weeks over the years they closed.

Nice listing, Michael. Thanks for going to the trouble of posting it.

After the Ziegfeld closed, I inserted into the Intro at top of the page the long runs of movies.

Out of all the movies which one has been played the most?

Great job. Still cant believe its gone. Many great movies played there over its lifetime

As requested, I’m re-posting the list of films that played here since the website redesign a few years ago has caused the original formatting to go haywire and because the original list is now buried among several pages of comments and because other, similar lists are less-detailed. So here’s a fresh version with improved layout and formatting. The 2000-2016 period is a work-in-progress and requires additional research/vetting and so for now only the titles are listed without any supporting details.

On a related note, I’ve also recently posted revised-and-updated listings for the Astor Plaza as well as San Francisco’s Northpoint and Phoenix’s Cine Capri.

THE ZIEGFELD, 1969-2016
