Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen just completed a week’s worth of shows at this theater. Looking good…
Paul, which of my photos did you comment on?
I believe the “New Embassy 46th Street” is the Victoria, not this Embassy.
Paul, I’m enjoying your posts, but please don’t use all capital letters; it makes it hard to read…
you don’t need to post in all caps…
It is now a Dollar Tree, although I wish it were a dollar theater instead.

The 1980 picture added to Photos
I posted two movie ads in the Photos section, but not one with any theaters listed :(
I posted two ads for The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm in the Photos section, one for the Cinerama run and one for the neighborhood non-Cinerama run…
Yes, Ben, please do that. Bright and clear and close-up where possible. Don’t forget to edit them before posting (cropping, lightening, centering, etc.) for best results.
Cabaret: USA:PG (MPAA rating: certificate #23094)
Since #2 Regal has about 7,307 screens in 564 theaters (compared to AMC’s 8,200 screens in 661 theatres) I guess you prefer Burger King…
It’s amazing (or not) what $93 million can do…
The original Broadway show starred Gertrude Berg and Cedric Hardwicke
Bob’s last starring role in a theatrical feature.
I wish I knew as much about classic movie houses then as I know now. I would have made it a point to visit every single remaining one a least once. And the ones I really did the visit over the years I would have paid closer attention to, savoring the experience.
That said, I knew enough by 1987 to be at the last show of the upstairs Loews State 2 so that I could get one last look at the proscenium, ceiling, fixtures…which I did indeed savor …
The apostrophe moved over to “its” and so now it too often auto corrects to “it’s” even when you don’t mean it to…
Orlando, you have shown yourself over the years to be a true movie theater lover, historian, preservationist, and restorer, and that’s only scratching the surface. And you’ve been a valuable asset to this site.
So please delete your intemperate response to a paying patron’s experience, rethink your answer, and post again in the cool light of day.
Was the delay in seating due to slow security check-ins?
I just checked out this page for the first time in a while, and there are so many great new photographs in the photo section… Thanks everybody, it really is the users' contributions that make this one of my favorite sites.
Loew’s not Lowe’s
New construction photo posted.
I was at the 2pm attempted TCM showing of Hitchcock’s North by Northwest yesterday when the projector or the signal or something wasn’t cooperating, and the screening was canceled. Everyone was given a pass to come back and refund of their admission price but it was still disappointing.
From the short bit we were able to see, the movie looked great — clear image, good sound, and subtle and natural use of Technicolor.
I think this was the theater where I first saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I went in completely unprepared and needless to say it knocked my socks off…!
