Warren, you are some kind of demi-god around here. How are you in real life?

I wonder if the Ziegfeld could be expanded upwards, maybe with a proper balcony installed and a few hundred more seats. I’d love to go to a 2000+ seat theatre on a regular basis.

What are the current uses for the Paramount, 5th Avenue, Moore and Neptune? (I know I could look it up, but…) Are they live performance spaces or do they still show movies? I wonder if any tours arre available. Thanks!

So, do you think is the best digital projection in the city?

And while I’m there, are there any recommendations for great movie houses that I should check out?

I meant the 68 foot screen.

I’ll be in Seattle in September and hope to see somehting on the 90 foot Cinerama screen, rather than the 60 foot (but still impressive!) screen.

How is the digital projection at this theater? I know there are several brands out there, some newer and better than others, and of different quality.

So who has the best digital projection, this screen or the ones at AMC or Loews? Or are there others I should consider for the best digital presentation?

The St. George website says that a classic movie night is coming soon.

Thanks for the link; really fascinating stuff. Not completely accurate, and with a typo or two, but well worth a visit.

Holy cow, what a collection of vintage photos at that link above. Thanks so much, Bryan. The first 24 photos are of 42nd Street theaters, which I hadn’t seen before. Quite a treat.

Oh!…then it was actually the Warner Twin, without the RKO, that had me stumped. I remember the Cinerama and the Penthouse (and the Cine Orleans!) but I don’t remember when it went (back) to Warner. What years were those and who ran it then? I do remember the Rialto revamped by Cineplex Odeon and called the Warner, so I guess that was after the Warner Twin closed.

“Artsy-fartsy” movies are usually pretty good…they’ve gone through a lot of careful review before they’re selected for your viewing pleasure. Anyway, once you’re up in the balcony with your favorite girl, who really cares what’s playing!

They put the art fare on the top floor and call it “Top of the Empire” or something like that.

I saw that film on CUNY, too. Fascinating look at New York, in startling color.
