Good luck! I was in that theater several times back in the 70’s

What theaters are left in SF besides the Castro? (decent sized I mean).

What a sad day. Another great theater bites the dust! :(

Yeah, but where are they going to get the product to fill all those screens?

Why is there no listing here for the Midtown? Is it listed under another name?

Is he still around? I know he and Margaret Whiting were an item after his film career. LOL.

Good luck! Anything that can bring attention to these endangered works of art is worth the effort.

There was an early Porn film called a Night at the Adonis that was supposedly filmed there. Dunno if they closed the theater for that or what.

What’s the seating capacity of this theater? Does anyone know?

Hibi commented about Circle Theatre on Feb 16, 2005 at 8:29 am

Thanks, I didnt spot it right away. Where were the other theaters in relation to this? (University, Park, Keiths) Were the Park and Alhambra on one side and the rest on the other side?of the street? I have a fascination with this area, but the theaters were long gone before I could explore it…

Hibi commented about Keith's 105th Street Theatre on Feb 15, 2005 at 11:01 am

What’s the theater farther down the street, do you know?

Hibi commented about Circle Theatre on Feb 15, 2005 at 10:55 am

Which marquee is the Circle? What is the theater next to it? Its on the right side of the street? Is this looking east or west?

Hibi commented about Metropolitan Theatre on Feb 15, 2005 at 8:51 am

This is sort of off topic, but why were there so many theaters in the Euclid/105th neighborhood? There were more theaters there than in Playhouse Sq. downtown. So the original Scrumpy Dump was in the theater lobby? That must have been a big lobby!

What a great loss. :(

Hibi commented about Criterion Theatre on Feb 2, 2005 at 5:51 am

Just another reason for me to hate multiplexes. Sigh.

Hibi
Hibi commented about Criterion Theatre on Feb 1, 2005 at 12:43 pm

Am I right in assuming from the Cinemascope website article that what we are seeing in multiplexes now are cropped Panavision prints? We’re not seeing the whole picture? This is depressing…….

Hibi commented about Criterion Theatre on Feb 1, 2005 at 7:47 am

Thanks! Have always wondered how all there processes differed.

Hibi
Hibi commented about Criterion Theatre on Feb 1, 2005 at 6:20 am

Yes, How did VistaVision differ from CinemaScope? When did Paramount stop using it? It had to be still around at least by ‘57 (Funny Face) And when did Panavision become the standard? Early 60’s? When did CinemaScope stop and Panavision start? How do they differ?Anyone want to educate us?

I recently caught The Pawnbroker (great movie, hadnt seen it before as I was too young when it came out) on TCM and there was a brief scene where Rod Steiger was walking down 125th St. It showed the Apollo and the Loew’s Victoria. Couldnt make out what was playing at the Apollo, but The L Shaped Room with Leslie Caron was on the Victoria marquee….

Whatever happened to the Old Mayfield? Was it torn down? Does anyone know? (The one in Little Italy).

Hibi commented about Hippodrome Theatre on Jan 25, 2005 at 6:20 am

Roger, that’s too bad, but I’m not surprised. I do remember some of the theaters from ads in 60’s newpapers.

Hibi commented about Hippodrome Theatre on Jan 21, 2005 at 8:14 am

Yes, cant wait to see the pictures! Many of the theaters, I’ve never heard of. Sad. I know there was a book published on the Playhouse Square theaters decades ago. Too bad no one bothered on the rest of them….
