Roger Katz commented about Digital Movie Licensing? on Feb 16, 2004 at 6:00 pm

Right now digital cinema is virtually non-existent. Very few movies are released digitally and few cinemas have the means to play these. The cost is way too high at the moment for the equipment needed. For more on issues like this check out the forum archives at BigScreenBiz http://www.bigscreenbiz.com/

Roger Katz commented about State Theatre on Feb 10, 2004 at 1:28 am

The State was known as the premier performance and concert venue in Hartford. It was only used as a movie theatre as a secondary attraction to its live shows.

The status that says “Renovating” is wrong. This cinema is set to be demolished (it may already have been demolished). A new cinema and live theatre will be built on its site.

Richard: I think that seating number is accurate as my source actually says it was 1200 seats (which is probably a bit earlier than the 1100 figure)!

Then unless they physically moved the building that makes it a different theatre since it is in a different building.

It is now a store called Wicker Paradise which sells furniture to meet all your wicker needs.

Roger Katz commented about Plaza Theater on Feb 5, 2004 at 6:16 pm

Hey Michael: Believe it or not, this theatre actually IS under consideration for use by a symphony orchestra. Word is that the Hartford Symphony Orchestra is considering turning the Plaza into their rehearsal space.

Roger Katz commented about Commodore Hull Theatre on Feb 5, 2004 at 5:01 pm

This theatre closed around 1952 and was converted into a TV showroom sales facility. It is sad to see it in its current sta5te as a parking garage.

Ooh! This theatre is less than 90 minutes from my house. I’d love to drop by sometime to see and photograph the wonderful restoration that has taken place!

Roger Katz commented about Berkshire Music Hall to Open This Spring on Jan 30, 2004 at 3:52 am

I didn’t include photos of the not-so-flattering details (e.g. the peeling walls, the sagging ceilings, and the holes in the floors)!

Roger Katz commented about Berkshire Music Hall to Open This Spring on Jan 30, 2004 at 3:35 am

There is no way this theatre will be reopened by June. I have been in a few theatres that were renovating, and this one is in far too dilapidated a condition to be fixed up so quickly. I’d guess that it will open at least 6 months behind schedule.
