Wasnt the Midland in Kansas City Loews favorite theater? I thought I read that somewhere……..
A small multiplex that features mostly specialty product and independent films For that reason alone, I like it as many films that play there would never be booked in other area theaters. Not crazy about the design (you have to go upstairs) and the theaters are small. Not as Grand as the Grand, but considering the movies they play, its worth supporting.
I was wondering if there was a listing and here it is! Have been watching the series……..
Did any newspaper bother to print that the last surviving Times Square theater is no more? I guess everyone has forgotten about it……..SAD.
Lovely. I wonder what they are doing with the decor? City dump?
Does anyone know if the original lobby on Broadway still exists inside or has it been converted to other use?
Those upstairs theaters were horrible! First time I’d ever seen pics of those. What a sad state of affairs. Farewell, the Demille! :((((( None of the rich moneybags in the city were willing to save you…….Sad that such a big city has no Times Sq. movie house…(as a single unit and decent size)
It’s so sad to see that no one is interested in saving this old warhorse that’s survived so long and is the last Times Square theater still in existence. Surely it could be converted to legit use?
The Sound of Music actually played at the Ohio theater downtown. My Fair Lady did play at the Colony along with Dr. Zhivago and many other roadshow engagements. Shaker Sq. was such and upscale area when I was younger. I’d hate to see what it looks like now. Such a shame…….
Thanks. I wondered. The outside was definitely the Northpoint.
I saw the theater in Zodiac also. I was wondering if the interior was actually the Northpoint or another theater. Can anyone tell?
I had a hard time finding this place too. I figured it was called a different name, but had no idea what. Nice at least it hasnt been torn down. Why cant this site have some cross referencing of theater names? Anyone have any idea what it looks like inside now?
Why isnt this theater listed under its original name (and for that matter, all theaters on this site?) If you didnt live in the area, you wouldnt have a clue on how to find it. It took me forever to find this theater listing. That being said, I hope this theater can be made to come alive again in its original form. Isnt this the last shuttered movie palace on Hollywood Blvd??
Valuable real estate. Sad. At least the Coronet didnt undergo the indignity of being multiplexed itself. I’ve read about this theater for years………
I would’ve liked to have seen more or the auditorium and the balcony, but I understand. Also a street map could’ve helped for people not familiar with downtown Cincinnati like me. But overall I thought it was very well done.
How sad they couldnt save this theater. I bought the Singer book and enjoyed leafing through it, but wished there had been more pics of the Albee interior. Cleveland and Columbus saved many of their downtown theaters, why couldnt Cinci save just one?
Happy to hear the theater will be in use again (for more than film shoots!)
I hope at least they de-twin the upstairs and leave that as one theater. Hope they can make a go of it. Some good news at least.
I second that. What a gorgeous place. And still standing!
Thanks! It looks great.
Where can one buy it?
I thought I read/heard somewhere that it had closed. No, I didnt have high hopes, but I was wondering how much of the theater still existed.
What’s the state of the old Criterion now that the Toys R Us has closed? Any hope of that being resurrected in some form or was that completely gutted?
You’re right, Vincent. It was his watch when those theaters went down. I’d forgotten about that. Wasnt he intrumental in getting those Times Square skycrapers built that destroyed many movie theaters?
Does anyone know who actually owns the theater property now? Why do they ask such astronomical rent? Who could ever make a profit and pay rent like that? Is it just a tax write off? Its a shame to let that theater just rot away there……..
