New Jack was what, 1990-91? If he was older then, the detective is probably long retired – they usually retire after 20 years…

Chuck 1231: Do you know how many seats were in the original 1968 building – either as a single or a twin? I was never in there but from the size of the building it looked to be 900 to 1000 seats, yet their directory ads in the paper always said “Parking for 3000 cars”.

Maybe they closed it because at the time Loews was owned by Sony, who may have been offended by the politically incorrect name ‘Oriental’. And changing it to Loews Asian sounded too stupid.

I know it’s NZ – Reading Entertainment the same bunch that owns City Cinemas in NYC.

I wonder if Reading is in a big hurry to convert this to retail, or tear it down for an ugly hi-rise apartment building, the way they do in New York. It’s a good thing LM found a photo of its unusual facade, these people are known for remodeling with a jackhammer.

WABC-TV Ch. 7 is who was originally reporting the story.

Ed Blank is correct: “Maurice” was at the Paris, for months and months.

dave-bronx™ commented about AMC Loews Village 7 on Jan 29, 2009 at 4:10 pm

When the Loews Village opened in 1991, it had the distinction of being the most expensive theatre per seat ever constructed. Loews paid a fortune for the site, and the unusual (at the time) multi-level layout necessitating a more complicated structural framing system and the many needed escalators were given as reasons for the high cost.

This stays open because the Union Square 14 is a rat infested pit and people try to avoid it.

dave-bronx™ commented about State Theatre on Jan 28, 2009 at 2:38 pm

One of several great murals painted by James Daugherty on the lobby walls of the Loew’s State can be seen here. I believe this is ‘The Spirit of Cinema’, and was photographed by Life Magazine for the cover of the February 20 1970 issue. That issue featured an article entitled “Goodbye to the Glory Days: Hollywood Puts Its Past Up For Sale”.

The ABC, from opening to about the late 1960s was operated by General Drive-In/General Cinema Corp.

dave-bronx™ commented about Quad Cinema on Jan 16, 2009 at 10:04 am

While I haven’t seen what they do at the Quad, I have seen it happen other places, but under the circumstances where the customer has had the tickets held in their mouth while adjusting their change, wallet, purse, shopping bags, baby strollers, babies etc. and then hands the ticket taker the wet end. Sometimes they go as far as jutting their head forward for the ticket taker to remove the tickets from their mouth (how disgusting is THAT?). That is the fastest way to turn an otherwise pleasant ticket taker surly. And it’s not a rare occurrence.
