Finally going to start upgrading to stereo in existing screens. Woohoo!!!!
Slow business but still going strong. Recent and upcoming festivals are helping.
I’m surprised they closed early too. At least they have the Cafe rented again. Too bad they won’t upgrade the sound in the theaters there.
Ken, getting back to that 1929 theater opening. I’m pretty sure it was the Lily theater. It’s only 2 blocks to the east of Tyson Avenue. You mentioned Tucson Avenue. I’m pretty sure it’s Tyson.
As I thumb through the pages*
Yep. The 3-D is still 70MM on the silver screen. The file cabinet is great. So much info.
Gone With The Wind…..4/24/75-4/28/75
Singing In The Rain……5/8/75-5/12/75
Sorry Ed. No grosses listed on any.
Some pretty interesting stuff I just came across here. There is an old filing cabinet in the old generator room here. In it are books dating back to the early 30’s with most if not all the movies that played here. Pretty big collection. Goes into the 70’s.
Yes, the bus has been a consistent pain in the ass. Still having issues. As far as the 3-D is concerned,…….
“Soon Santa is off, and the sleigh ride from the North Pole to Manhattan, with 3-D effects on the giant LED screen at the back of the enormous stage, draws oohs and aahs.”………
At least part of that is right. It does get lots of oohs and aahs. It IS still on 70MM film (as it should be)……..
Typical Cineplex installation.
A distraction to the live show? I don’t think so. Just another way to cut a job and give the people less.
Just found out a change for Christmas show.All the video projection that was on both sides of the 1st Mezz has been eliminated.
It doesn’t mention wardrobe specifically on my schedule. October 20th is first day of load in. October 30th is first tech rehearsal.
Early?? It’s 3 days later than last year..lol.
Christmas show load in starts October 20th!!!!!
Still running. Upgraded some equipment also. Nice place.
They are definitely not pictures of either the Calderone or the Hempstead theater.
The old theater is now a sporting goods store called East End Sporting Goods. The “M” is still on the marquee.
Apparently the economy has not affected the Christmas show that much. Opening day has only been pushed back about one week.
It could be Tyson Avenue which is in walking distance of the Floral
As bad as you may think the article is, it’s exactly what is happening. It’s all about money today. It doesn’t matter if there is a historic place there. Same with the bowling alley. They can get more money with something else in it’s place. It’s not going to change.
I would like to hear of any other stories like this myself. I doubt and hope that there are no others. I have been here for 15 years and never have I heard of or seen anything like this.
The quarter moon you are seeing is actually a reflection from the subwoofer driver. I should have painted it when I replaced the screen last year. As far as the picture not being centered, they probably didn’t adjust the masking right. All the aspect ratios for all 4 screens are correct. We are one of the few theaters around that actually have the proper lenses and plates for all 4 aspect ratios.
The first couple weeks I thought attendance was up but now it has dropped off. Most of the optional shows have been cancelled already. I suspect the remaining ones will be also. Also, from what I have heard, they are looking to start the shows next year later into the season.
