Is this a new theatre in Albany? Or are you planning to open either of the two multiplexes that currently sit abandoned there?

Roger Katz commented about National Amusements Signs Theater Deal With IMAX on Aug 12, 2004 at 10:57 am

An IMAX screen is supposed to be really tall. I don’t understand how they can fit one into a regular auditorium. The auditoriums at Buckland Hills are not even close to the height needed for IMAX.

Roger Katz commented about Cinema Latino for NYC's Clearview Broadway & 62nd on Aug 12, 2004 at 5:10 am

I’m not sure anyone will travel to this cinema. Latino cinemas have failed time after time in city after city due to the fact that the Hispanic population wants to see the same blockbuster movies – in English – that everyone else is seeing.

“Just like Hartford.”

FYI, Hartford still has 2 old theatres open. Granted, one now shows adult movies (Art Cinema) and the other hosts live concerts (Webster Theatre), but nevertheless they are open.

Anyone know if this has reopened as a nightclub or did they run out of money midstream?

I love going to movies at Real Art Ways. They would like to add a second screen if they can raise money for it.

Roger Katz commented about Crown Cine on Jun 25, 2004 at 7:08 am

This theatre was also known as the Brandt Cine. It did close in 1999. The sign was still standing as of the last time I was there in 2002. I believe a hotel was built on the former theatre site.

Michael, do you know what plagarism is? Please do not use my words without my permission or at least giving me credit for them rather than passing them off as your own. As you can see from the website where you “borrowed” the above description of this theatre from, they are copyrighted.

Roger Katz commented about Ville Theater on Jun 12, 2004 at 7:04 pm

It is in the Waterville section of Waterbury. There is no such town as Westbury, although it was the name Watertown was known by a couple hundred years ago.

Roger Katz commented about Loew's Majestic Theatre on May 22, 2004 at 6:31 pm

I’d be shocked if this ad were for the Majestic in Bridgeport. Bridgeport is too far awaway from Hartford, especially in 1921, for a Hartford paper to run an ad for a Bridgeport theatre. Maybe the ad was for the Majestic on Asylum Avenue in Hartford?

C.M. Brown: As a born and raised West Hartford citizen (lived there from 1976 through 1997) who still lives within a 40 minute drive I would like to help save the Elm. How do I join your campaign?

The only interior shots that I know of that may exist are owned by the Perakos family which had promised to send them to me, but never did.
