Wow, I just read on wikipedia that they are trying to become 70mm equipped. That would be incredible. I am going to look into this and see how I can help.

I was so happy to be in New York around Halloween. I used a family car and drove myself to the Loew’s to see “The Shinning”. What a beautiful theater !! The organ sounded wonderful as he played for an hour for the crowds were huge outside. A night I will never forget. The group that runs the theater are to be hailed for their effort keeping this beautiful theater alive. Congrats to all !!

Hi Altoblanco… “What does the Loews Jersey mean to me?” (Sorry, I don’t want this to sound like an elementary school “post-summer” creative writing essay !) But for all of us who love film, this question really should be answered. For me, if I were to respond to this question with one word, it would have to be “heritage”, both “personal” and “communal”. As a resident of Hudson County for the first 31 years of my life, just about every weekend would find me on the #1 Boulevard bus on my way to Journal Square, final destination.. the great Loews Jersey! (and occasionally the Stanley and the State.) I find it more than a bit disturbing that “heritage” is a concept that has such little value these days. (just about now, I am imagining those cries of “nostalgia” or “why don’t you stop living in the past !”) But where would any community be without a sense of its history and a respect for the foundations of that community? The Loews is one of those very few venues where I make it a point to attend not always for the films they present (although there have been some great programs such as the James Bond weekend, the Film Noir presentations and the early Sc-Fi Festivals) but just to sit and take in the surroundings of this grand architectural marvel! (a kind of “meditation” for me, if you will.)

Our Heritage needs to be preserved! (The FOL have done a wonderful job in this respect.) Bob

Here is the latest in the unfortunate battle between Friends of the Loew’s and Mayor Fulop for control of the theater.


Now, more than ever, FOL needs public support. Despite the many obstacles placed before them, they have remained true to their mission of not only saving, renovating and maintaining this magnificent slice of history, but also operating and sustaining it as a precious and necessary cultural and community resource for the citizens of Jersey City and beyond. Now THEIR survival is at stake! Loew’s Jersey’s supporters, customers and friends must let their voices be heard if this iconic building is to remain in the hands of the people, for the people.

The Mayor and big government should not be allowed to strong-arm their way in, take over the “people’s palace” and turn it into a symbol of self-serving opportunism and greed. It must remain ACCESSIBLE to ALL – and that can only happen if FOL stays the course. We can all help by letting our public officials know how important and invaluable FOL’s role CONTINUES to be in accomplishing this, and what it means to us to preserve Loew’s Jersey Theatre as an a NON-PROFIT, COMMUNITY-BASED arts and entertainment center that ultimately serves and benefits EVERYONE!

If you’ve ever attended any movies, shows or other events there… performed there… worked there… have personal memories or reminiscences… followed its history… advocated for its preservation… or simply admire it from a distance as a “theater buff”… What does Loew’s Jersey mean to YOU?

Any word yet as to what the films might be for next weekend, June 13 and 14 ?

The Landmark Loews Jersey Screenings This Friday April 25 and Saturday April 26

New York, New York. The city’s so nice they had to name it twice…

Friday April 25th at 8PM

The French Connection

Nothing say’s New York better than this gritty tale of international drug smugglers and corrupt cops. 35mm film presentation.

Saturday April 26th at 6pm.

Little Fugitive

An amazing tour of Coney Island in the 1950’s. It is the story of a little boy who runs away from home, to hide out at New York City’s playground, Coney Island. 35mm Film Presentation.

Saturday April 26th at 8pm


Harold Lloyd’s classic comedy about a New York a small time Trolly operator trying to keep his business afloat against bigger competitors who will use any means to take over his routes. The highlight of the film is a mad rush though the crowded streets of Manhattan to get the real life Babe Ruth to the real life Yankee Stadium in time for a game. 35mm film presentation, organ accompaniment by Bernie Anderson.

And so goes the Boyd Theatre in Philadelphia. In 2005, Live Nation bought the theatre, and it has been boarded up ever since. According to news reports, they have started demolishing this art deco gem so they can sell the building to a company that plans to build a modern multiplex.

Agreed, movieguy. “Glorious” is certainly the word for what the Loews does with their 35mm film programs!

movieguy on March 28, 2014 at 9:36 am

Yes “The African Queen” WILL show in GLORIOUS 35MM!

bolorkay on March 28, 2014 at 7:38 am

Just got the e-mail on 3/26…. John Huston’s “The African Queen” (with Bogart and Hepburn) will be screened this Saturday at 7 P.M. at the Landmark Loews Jersey.

Very quiet (in terms of films) for the remainder of this month and into March… I hope all is well at this great theater.

Not only did Jaws not have much advance publicity, but the free publicity it could have had for over a week — the name of the movie on the marquee — was not there as of Saturday morning, mere hours before the show.

I know the volunteer staff is spread thin, and under the weather, but it seems ludicrous that someone couldn’t change the marquee before show time.

Was it even changed BY show time?

bolorkay on February 5, 2014 at 3:05 pm

Thanks, FOL for that great 35mm presentation of “Jaws” this past weekend. One of those movies that just keeps getting better with time, especially on Loew’s huge screen. Very nice turnout for a film that did not recieve very much advance publicity. Looking forward to the rest of February and March to see what surprises are in store for us.

GDellaFa on January 28, 2014 at 6:09 pm

Yay! Thanks! I’ll be there!!!

bolorkay on January 28, 2014 at 6:08 pm

Yes. “Jaws” will be screened this Sat., Feb 1 at 7 P.M.

GDellaFa on January 23, 2014 at 7:51 pm

Any films scheduled for January of February 2014?

bolorkay on January 6, 2014 at 8:48 am

NYCer, In a year-end email from the Friends of Loew’s summarizing some of the great programs of 2013 one of the “frustrations” mentioned was that the government funding coming from Jersey City never seemed to materialize. (If I have my facts straight.) Would this be the same funding/support for renovations mentioned in your post of Nov. 12 ?

GDellaFa on January 2, 2014 at 8:57 pm

Any chance this could ever be shown at the Loew’s Jersey on the big screen?:


bolorkay on January 1, 2014 at 12:34 pm

Any thoughts yet on the monthly film programs for the month of January ?

NYCer on November 12, 2013 at 7:50 pm

Some good news. Looks like more funding and government support for the renovation of this theater. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303914304579194271702251270

It was a fantastic show tonight with BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN and PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.

Bernie Anderson’s superb accompaniment on the Wonder Morton fit the movie perfectly. Subtle musical touches with dramatic pauses at key moments really added to the effectiveness of his score. It was nice to see the audience respond with a standing ovation and I’ve never heard the organ sounding better. Bravo to Bob Martin and his crew for restoring and maintaining this magnificent instrument.

The volunteers were very cordial and did a great job with handling the large crowd.

Major kudos to the projection team for a flawless 35mm presentation. The framing, focus, changeovers and curtain cues were done perfectly. An excellent job.

If you haven’t been to the Loew’s Jersey, make it a point to attend their classic 35mm film presentations. You won’t be disappointed!

bolorkay on September 29, 2013 at 10:12 am

Leave it to the Loews Jersey to present such a wonderfully “varied” film program as this past weekend’s. Car chase films? Who would have thought? (Whoever organizes the Loews film programs should be commended for their imagination and just plain sense of “fun”.) And (call me old-fahioned, if you will) in glorious 35mm! Looking forward, FOL to the “Horror Weekend” at the end of October.

Good looking line up Mitchell. I wish I could be there for Bullitt but I think I might be working at the Prudential Center. If not I may come up and visit and be sure to ask for you.
