Mike (saps) commented about Times Square Theatre on Oct 2, 2006 at 10:55 am

The movie “Sunrise” is playing on the Fox Movie Channel. According the New York Times review of the picture at the time, it opened at this theater on September 23, 1927. “Sunrise” won several awards at the first Academy Awards, including “Unique and Artistic Picture.”

I was shocked to read in Yahoo Movies that “This theater is permanently closed.” So I came straight here and am relieved to find out that it is alive and well as a Regal Cinema.

Ken, could you be more specific?

I will be checking out “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” which I’ve never seen. Also looking forward to “Cabaret,” which originally opened at the Ziegfeld, and the “Grease” sing-a-long should be a lot of fun.

I’m not buying anything from ij’s collection, but I thought there were several interesting items that I enjoyed looking at.

Some of the articles specifially mention that his other screens show mainstream fare, not art, yet Cinema Village shows exclusively art product.

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?

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.

Mike (saps) commented about Polk Theater on May 20, 2006 at 3:28 pm

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?

Mike (saps) commented about Capitol Theatre on May 8, 2006 at 3:08 pm

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.

Mike (saps) commented about Utah Theater Cancels 'Brokeback Mountain' on May 7, 2006 at 11:54 am

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.

Mike (saps) commented about Lyric Theatre on May 4, 2006 at 3:22 am

The Lyric at 100 Third Avenue (listed here as the Bijou) is in a four story building; this looks a lot shorter.

Mike (saps) commented about Lyric Theatre on May 3, 2006 at 4:39 pm

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.
