AMC has left the building.
Also, I can’t tell exactly what other theaters Nicolaou owns in Manhattan…is it one theater or is it the City Cinemas chain?
Craig does a good job.
I didn’t see these screenings but I have really enjoyed others in the past.
Still no messages in my mailbox; over a week now.
I haven’t received any comments in over a week, either, and I know that theaters that I subscribe to have had comments, but they haven’t arrived in my mail. I checked my profile and my email address is correct, so I wonder what’s up.
Boy, do we need it now.
The Voice article said the Polk was one of three theaters left showing porn on the big screen. What are the other two; I’d like to check them out before they close.
Nice ad, Warren. By the way, What was the Loew’s 42nd Street?
I’m sure the print of “The Stork Club” was in pristine condition at the Paramount, much unlike the raggedy public domain print that often turns up in the wee hours on public television.
More fodder for the flame war:
To some people, anyone out of the closet is a “homosexual activist.” Those same people won’t admit that gay people come from traditional families and usually support traditional values. What is the fight for gay marriage but a demand for stability and tradition? Or that the point of Brokeback Mountain is that staying in the closet is an intolerable and suffocating way of life? I find that many gay people are intolerant of intolerance. And ghamilton unwittingly supports this position: “Give [people] the right to do what they want.” What could be more traditional than that?
Maybe we should inform National Amusements, as well as each other.
The Lyric at 100 Third Avenue (listed here as the Bijou) is in a four story building; this looks a lot shorter.
Looks like an elevated train column in front of the theater, so that means it’s not on 42nd Street.
Robert R, do you have a transcription of that NY Times article by Bosley Crowther?
Glad you joined just so you could share those memories of times gone by! If I had lived in Boston then, I probably would have called the Pilgrim a home-away-from-home, too.
I’m taking my 24 year old niece to see Lawrence sometime next week. I know she’ll love it.
Jerry, my head just exploded in delight when I saw that flyer advertising Brandt’s 42nd Street theaters. I’d been to all those theaters from about 1974 until they closed. What lost treasures, and what a delight to see them so well promoted.
Jerry, great album. I looked at all 24 pics. In a word, wow.
Last time I looked the Metropolitan is located on Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn.
Let’s stay on topic here; I’m sure there is plenty of room on the Commodore and Williamsburgh pages for your musings.
I don’t think the Anco ever went porno.
