I agree with Ross time to drop all the personal jabs leave it for the boxing ring ALA Rocky!
James should return next weekend so the problem experienced with Rocky SHOULD NOT be repeated!
Hey Rhett that is a bummer that Rocky was not presented well, very unusual for The Lafayette! James has been the man behind the projector since Nelson Pete and crew departed.
I was planning on going but had to change plans at the last minute.
We should support the rest of the series. I did phone into WRCR 1300 AM on Friday morning and talked with the Host’s of the show about the classic series and The Lafayette with them for about 5 min.
Rocky Will be the “CLASSIC” movie the morning. I look forward to seeing it on THE BIG SILVER SCREEN!
When Nelson and crew ran the Lafayette they changed over the movies at a faster rate.Most movies ran only 2 weeks (except for Harry Potter or The Dark Night)
99% of the films today only have “legs” for two weeks.In a single screen theatre it is crucial to not let a movie run to long..
Night At The Museum II would have been PERFECT for The Lafayette.It would have attracted folks from age 8-80. Parents with their kids teens, couples. I WAS in the theatre on opening weekend of Night At The Museum and their were over 800 people there!
UP will be in 3D and IMAX so many people will go see it that way.Not such a good booking for The Lafayette.
SOS to Nelson, Bob and Pete the Patient is Ailing and need of a team of skilled Doctor’s to bring her back to good health!!
With regards to the curtain mechanism being burned out I hope it is fixed quickly.I have been going to the Lafayette since 1980 and have NEVER attended a screening without the curtain working.
Jeff sorry to hear that your movie going experience was not as good as it could have been.I am glad you drove up to Suffern and supported The Lafayete!!
The classic shows are a lot of fun, but do not pay the bills.The Lafayette has to rely on the regular films to keep the theatre going.
I did see Star Trek on opening weekend (Sat nite) There was a very nice sized crowd.I hope the Lafayette screens Night At The Museum 2 this Friday.
The sheets should days “What Movies Would you like to see in the future” not just plain paper of course
Rhett I agree with you! I am glad that there is a series on Sat morning.Rocky,Midnight Cowboy,Annie Hall and Network were movies I only had a chance to see on video.
In the fall hopefully more films from the 1930’s-1950’s will be screened.
Perhaps if sheets were printed and handed out in the theatre folks could write in the films they want to see.
Tonight THURSDAY Star Trek WILL have a SPECIAL ADVANCED screening! Catch this film tonight at THE ONLY MOVIE PALACE in the ENTIRE TRI-STATE AREA!
This weekend Star Trek will light up the SILVER SCREEN at the Lafayette!!
It is supposed to be rainy on Saturday so it would be a GREAT day to go and see Midngit Cowboy in the morning.Then return for the 7:00pm screening with Jeff Barker at 6:30 for a pre-show concert at the mighty Ben Hall Memorial Mighty Wurlitzer!
It was a STUNNING PRINT! I have NEVER seen Westside Story in the theatr. It was AMAZING!
I sat in the balcony so I did not experience the talking or cell phones ringing.
I was not able to make it for Some Like It Hot. How was the print? Did Jeff play the organ? It was like a summer day so that may have affected turnout.
Some Like it Hot screens tomorrow morning! Looking forward to Jeff Barker for a pre-show concert!
State Of Play begins tonight it has received many good reviews!
We will have to wait and see what happens. I am looking forward to seeing Raging Bull, Rocky, Annie Hall and Midnight Cowboy.Different choices from when Nelson and Pete did the programing yes, but good flicks!.
I do not think the older crowd will be as bent out of shape regarding the “racier” films as some pessimistic posters think.
Hey Pete I agree with you 100% on all of your points! Especially on reason three.With all the hard work you and Nelson and Bob did over the years, be it the classic series,special weekends or just seeing a regular Hollywood flick made The Lafayette a very special place.
Some of the “magic” may be missing without you guys at the helm,but “The Show Must Go On”
Hope to see many familiar faces and new ones for the spring season of classic films!
The appear to be running films that were “Oscar” Winners over the years. Some may not be as family or senior citizen friendly as in the past.
Better to have a classic films series then none at all.

This was fine as a single screen, not to bad as a twin. It is now HORRIBLE!The seats were NEVER re-done since it was a SINGLE SCREEN! Not only are they old and uncomfortable BUT they are all at a slant in all 4 theatres. This is bc they were set up to face one screen!
Clearview fixed up many of their other in Westchester, NJ and Rockland with new seats and better sound systems over the past few years.
This theatre got nothing! Not even new carpets! So you get uncomfortable seats poor sound small screens 4 little boxes that are supposed to pass as theatres!
The last INSULT is the $11.00 price! I went there on Tue which is free if you have Optimum Cable Tripple Play.
The staff is friendly!
Clearview TEAR DOWN THIS CINEMA AND BUILD A NEW MODERN 4 SCREENER!
Yes Clearview is not a big chain. The run one theatre that used to be independent The Warner In Ridgewood NJ. It is a quad but retains a lot of the elements from when it was a single screen. The manager is very nice and she works hard on keeping customers happy.
Have you ever been to the Washington Theatre in Washington NJ?
Digital projection IMO it not good as 35MM all this hubbub digital IS OVERRATED! Digital is going to HURT and put out of business many of the independent cinemas. Then the ONLY choice people will have is AMC REGAL and CLEARVIEW! Once that happens ticket prices will be $14-16 + more for a 3D film!
SUPPORT THE INDEPENDENT CINEMAS like The NEWTON Theatre in NEWTON! The Lafayette In Suffern NY and the Washington Theatre in Washington NJ!
They are all 3 GEMS with heart soul character! The owner at the Washington theatre and the staff are the nicest people!
This theatre is a TRUE GEM! I have been attending movies here for over 10 years.The staff is very friendly and helpful. The popcorn HOT AND FRESH! The screen is LARGE the sound crisp and clar without being overly loud!
The Picture House has HEART and SOUL! IMO Why would you want to go anywhere else?!?!?
I am looking forward to coming down to this GEM of a theatre! This theatre has HEART AND SOUL! Marco Joni are doing a GREAT JOB!
I will try to come down this Sunday or Fri,you are about 75 miles away from me, but I am sure it will be worth the drive!
Hi I am a bit confused about the post Washington Theatre Re-Opens. I know it had been taken over in 2006 I spoke to the owner on the phone and he was very friendly.Did he sell the theatre to new owners/operators?
