Nice to see the Music Hall beautifully featured in tonight’s Wheel of Fortune.
I think it is because a movie usually plays in only one theater per neighborhood; when it plays on both 42nd Street and on Broadway, it is then playing in two houses in the same area, so the discount house gets left out of the advertising and the prestige booking gets the ads. But both bookings get listed in the movie clock.
Aren’t there already groups that have been working on this for the past decades? What are they up to?

Pyrrhic victory \PIR-ik\, noun:
A victory achieved at great or excessive cost; a ruinous victory.
Example: Technically it was a victory for the British, who attacked the patriot fortifications — but a Pyrrhic victory if ever there was: out of 2,200 British soldiers 1,034 were killed or wounded, including one in nine of all the officers the British lost in the whole war.

A good musical tied to the theme of the end of WWII would be “It’s Always Fair Weather” a glum little story about disillusioned post-war vets.
Or, as my English teacher might say, when is the next scheduled program?
What is the next program scheduled?
Did the Orleans always have its own separate entrance on 47th Street?
Worst. Thread. Ever.
Hey Gus, if this was open…I’d go inside; it wouldn’t depend on what’s playing.
I’d say, spend the $10 and go inside! Who cares what’s playing. Remember, we buy tickets to theaters, not movies.
Garth may have mismanaged or overspent, but he put tons of money and love into his Cineplex Odeon houses, and it shows. They had curtains and wall decorations and lots of neon and other touches. They weren’t palaces but they were showplaces; Garth was an exhibitor and a showman. Compare him to the bureaucrats who run UA/Regal, with their lack of imagination and dreadful designs. Everytime I’m in the UA 14th Street I expect to hear bus departure announcements.
stoppit already, my mailbox is exhausted!
Sorry, I meant when I was at the Lyric/Park, which while full of atmosphere, was probably not an atmospheric! Never been to the Mayfair, which was already gone by the time I discovered Asbury Park.
The balcony was already closed when I was here, and a drop ceiling over the orchestra, with no access to the ceiling that I could find. I would have loved to have seen the atmospherics, or what may have been left of them.
I saw Robin and Marian there. Not a good movie, and a bit of a downer. But I don’t recall an empty house.
Tommy was one of the first movies I saw at the Ziegfeld and I can remember it as if it was yesterday. The sound and spectacle were awesome; and coming from the suburbs (RKO Twin, anyone?) the theater was a revelation. Who knew you could see a movie in such a glamorous and elegant setting.
We’re lucky that in New York City “art” releases and mainstream releases often share the same venue, as at the Clearview Chelsea, Loews Lincoln Square, AMC Empire, and Regal 14th Street. Even the Ziegfeld just played Raging Bull, a picture more likely to be found at the Film Forum. So it is conceivable that King and I could have an arthouse release plan, yet play at a big screen house in NYC and the art rounds in other markets.
Friends of the LIU gymnasium, unite!
Friends of the Brooklyn Paramount, unite!
And that’s a very interesting site. Thanks for the tip.
In a word, wow! But I wonder if the Lyric actualy played those two movies, or if it was a mock up for the film.
