“The Old Man and the Sea” played for four soft weeks (27 days, to be precise) at the Warner.

Hi, Denny. The Hollywood was a Warner theater but not a John P. Harris theater. They were rival circuits here.

Thanks for those, Denny. Miss the marquees, if not the spelling on the Colonial’s.

Do they remove all – perhaps 4,000 – orchestra auditorium seats? That seams like a tremendous effort for a two day rental.

GabeDF, Coincidental to your posting of a silent video showing “The Bells of St. Mary’s” on the RCMH marquee, that was the answer to a pricey question on “Millionaire” recently: What was the movie indicated in the background when Michael and Kay left a theater in “The Godfather”? (Or words to that effect.) I always thought that was a good choice by Francis Ford Coppola, not just because it was period-appropriate but because it seemed so suitable a choice for that idealistic couple just before the moment when he began evolving into the future Corleone don.

That stage production of “The Chosen” surprisingly lasted for just six performances, Jan. 6-10, 1988, although the marquee signage probably was in place for the final month or two of 1987 and may have stayed up for many weeks after the play closed

Loved those busy old marquees on 42nd Street.

Thanks for the many fine Manhattan marquee shots, Al.

Bravo, Al, for your observations about the short-sightedness and lack of research and information in faux documentaries. I’ve seen few “documentaries” in theaters in the past 20 years that weren’t simply love letters to their subjects.

I miss visiting the Arcade. Final owner Stanley “Zundy” Kramer still lives in the area. Nice guy. And a true “character” in the traditional sense of colorful people who are quoted and remembered favorably.

Great shot. Can’t quite see the Victoria marquee. Looks as if “Prince (something)” is playing.
