Will this be actual film projection, as opposed to DVD?
I recall “King of Hearts” playing “forever” at the Central Square Cinema across the river — not here at the Exeter.
But I saw Gettysburg at the Charles. Maybe it opened simultaneously at Coolidge?
The Charles had a huge screen upstairs and two small screens downstairs. When Walter Reade still owned it, those were called the Charles East and Charles West.
By the late 1970s and early 80s, the Music Hall was almost exclusively a live stage and rarely showed films.
The address is correct. There is more than one Cambridge Street in Boston, and the map is showing the wrong one.
what is The Cleve?
Is there another still-operating Paris Cinema (perhaps the one in NYC) who could use the sign?
Can you create a page here for the In-Town? It is before my time in Columbus.
The Capitol and Somerville are both converting to digital (while retaining the ability to project 35mm), but I don’t know what’s happening with the Lexington Venue and the other theatres you listed here.
Why did the federal government care what kind of entertainment the Astor was presenting?
The other film I’m pretty sure I saw in 70mm here is “Lawrence of Arabia”.
I saw “Gettysburg” here. Wasn’t that in 70mm?
When did they add “and Drafthouse” to their name?
Does this mean the theatre is closed and abandoned?
Even into its X-rated days, it was “E.M. Loew’s West End Cinema” — until it was one day renamed “West End Pussycat”.
What is now in this location?
Poor Little Rich Girl closed last year, and Grand closed two weeks ago. I don’t yet know what will replace them in this storefront.
I’m seeing this on February 21, so how did you post it on February 24? It seems to be missing from the News page.
Today’s Boston Herald reports that the Stuart Street Playhouse is being extensively rebuilt and will be renamed “Theatre 1” when it reopens in April.
“The playhouse has been completely redesigned as a 225-seat theater for events ranging from movie screenings, acoustic music performances and short-run plays to corporate meetings.”
They expect it to hold corporate and sales meetings during the day, and to be an entertainment venue at night.
Cinema 57’s former second screen is being converted to a “blank canvas” room called Space 57 that can hold about 800 people for stand-up receptions or 300 for sit-down dinners.
The Radisson Hotel that contains both rooms is being renamed the Revere Hotel and is becoming a “boutique” hotel.
Where was the Walter Reade? I don’t remember any place with this name.
Seems reasonable; most of these places, once they are saved, need live performances to stay in business.
Link to the place where you read this news, please?
AMC will build a new 12-screen theatre in Assembly Square, according to today’s Boston Globe. Construction will start this year, and it may open by fall 2013.
When I go to the website that is listed here (CinemaCity8.com) I get a
“Directory listing is denied” error. The WHOIS information for that domain doesn’t say anything about Cover Your Assets II.
