I think it’s Cinepolis, a Mexican exhibitor with eight US houses; details to follow…
Bow-tie has sold the theater; new owners take over July 1st, 2016.
I heard the name but can’t remember it; details to follow.
Passed by last night, stage house almost completely demolished since Friday…
Looking gorgeous on tonight’s Tony Awards…
Walked by today, got a good look at the proscenium and stagehouse through a gap in the fence netting. You can see the arch above the stage area and the cinder blocks they used to create the wall for a new screening room.
Ed, post your pics…!
I just read the article about the renovations. I can’t tell from the photos if the concession area has been redesigned, etc…
It seems weird (and a little sad) to hear about “both” Times Square theaters…
Of course between them there are 38 screens, but still…:(
You’ve gotta have glorious Technicolor,
Breathtaking Cinemascope or
Cinerama, Vista Vision, Superscope or
And Stereophonic sound.
But maybe they could delete some of their comments every now and then…
It did seem wide…
Saw my first James Bond movie here — Live and Let Die — and have been a lifelong fan ever since. My sweetheart and I (ah, young love) took the HART bus from Northport, and I had no idea what to expect. In a word, wow! I remember the theater was big and square, with no balcony, but I did return here many times in the ensuing years.
After you few have your private conversations about Dolby at the Paramus and heaven knows what else, can you please delete your comments? They are cluttering up this page with, imho, irrelevant and tedious chatter that is of little interest to the rest if us.
Intro should mention that The Sunrise Multiplex Cinemas was closed January 19, 2015.
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
Jumping Jehosaphat, who the hell cares.
Go and find out. And make sure you report back here. Not.
The last time I passed by the marquee was in lousy condition — bulbs out, crawl not working…
That is an amazing list. I am astounded at how many movies I remember seeing at this house. Damn, what a loss…
How about reposting it now? So we don’t have to dig through the archives….
I guess you would choose the version you’d want to see based on how long a nap you needed…
On its website Regal says a new multiplex coming here in 2017. link
What’s that burlesque theatre on Irving Place and 13th street, seen in the first photo…?
There is now a construction fence around the entire building and adjacent parking lot.
Spring question: Would you rather have roses on your piano or tulips on your organ?
