I suspect that in the era when audiences sat on the floor in front of the screen to watch “2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY”, front row at “FUNNY GIRL” was no longer an issue.
Vindanpar, you are correct. It seems the first six rows, for some reason, were deemed too close to be full priced for MY FAIR LADY.
So when was this the case here?
Vindanpar, you must have missed “EVITA”.
??? Your first paragraph seems to contradict your second.
This may have been operating as the LENOX in 1968 advertised for “Coogan’s Bluff” in the NYT.
“THE LION IN WINTER” played here for over a year.
Of all the generic multiplexes in the world, vindanpar pointed out this classic historic beauty as the target of shame. How clueless is that?
vindanpar, the historic lobby of this theatre alone is worth the listing.
ridethectrain. Try. Punctuation. Please.
Operating as the Santurce in 1959-1961.
bigjoe59, the studio announced an expected $110 million opening. That figure was low based on other recent Batman films opening at results much higher than that. The resulting $94 million opening is therefore considered a ‘stumble’.
I don’t know, “THE HIP HOP NUTCRACKER” sounds pretty Brooklyn to me.
That would be the Liberty, robboehm.
The big three Broadway landlords are thrilled at the lack of competition. They would want no part of this theatre as it might lower ticket prices. That is why still have huge shut down theatre space on 42nd street.
Garth, “THE LAST WAVE” opened at the original single screen Beekman, not this one.
ridethectrain, can you please try English. I have no idea what you are trying to say in your last four posts.
Unless it is a Nolan, short attention span digital slide show, with muddled mono dialogue, deafening noise and loud music interludes designed to keep audiences awake. Then I stay home and avoid all movie theatres for a while.
moviebuff82, SDDS is (was?)a sound system.
The inaudible dialogue issue is not a theatre adjustment problem. They problems continue on the Blu-Ray versions. It is a sound mixing poor production value issue. Most theatres have experienced technicians who visit and check for presentation quality. Perhaps this standard level of checks and balances has been cut down.
Alpine, how many people were in the audience at each showing? Larger crowds absorb sound.
The Rivoli was twinned in 1981.
“THE OMEN” opened at the National in 1976. The Criterion became a five-plex in 1980. “DIVINE MADNESS” opened there after the ‘plexing’. In 1981 it became a six-plex. In 1991 it became a seven-plex.
Some of those older cinema screens had space behind them for giant speakers on what appeared to be a stage but the area was actually only about five feet deep. When the curved screen was installed for “South Pacific” they probably removed some front seats to accommodate the screen curvature.
It opened on February 4 and played until June 23, 1970. 16 or 17 weeks.
