The Jackson will reopen within the next 2 weeks……….
It’s been about 5 years since we have run through New Years.
That’s another surprising thing. Last year, there were large sections that were empty for the 9:00 AM shows. This year, they are filled.
Better than good. I’m shocked to see so few empty seats. Even the 10:00 PM shows on the weekends have been packed.
One of the trusses was lowered to work on it. It has the wreaths and gold balls on it. The ice rink is no longer on the band car elevator. It comes up on elevator 3 and stays there.
I hope this works. Here are some pictures I took today. During each show there are 2 projectionists, at least 8 spot operators and countless other stagehands.
The spotlight operators are still here and being used. We do still use film here at times.
We still go on the buzzes today.
All Xenon bulbs now. All spots are used throughout the year off and on.
There seems to be some major renovations going on at the theater.
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.
