Its amazing this could operate with a film policy as it did until 1981.

I love that incredible CINEMASCOPE sign from 1963. Is there another word in neon on the same sign also that maybe it flashed from one to the other?

I think the American in the Bronx. It was stupid of them to rip the walls apart in the downstairs.

Out of all the movie palaces restored or about to be restored (Jersey, Kings, Paradise)the Keith’s is in one of the most populated areas to support concerts. Flushing is more populated then ever.

“Islands in the Stream” was the the last film to play under the Loew’s banner. Somewhere among all of these posts I printed some information I found that the theatre was operated independantly for a short time on two different occasions.

Almost since inception the Ziegfeld has closed for weeks and sometimes months at a time between bookings or for private screenings.

If they want to restore this theatre I would think someone would close up the huge hole in the roof. I drove by today and the snow was blowing in.

RobertR commented about Will movies at home kill movie theaters? on Nov 20, 2009 at 10:22 pm

I think we need to do what they did in the 1950’s. Give them a screen so large that when they walk in the theatre they go WOW. With home TV sets getting bigger and bigger its time for huge curved screens again and big auditoriums even with a plex.
