I think this picture dates from 2001 because I saw Yes here on a Saturday night. 3 days later, on Tuesday, 9/11 happened.

This is a program I got at Cinestudio when I saw “2001” there in 70mm in February 2002.
It was so hot in the Dome that night, the icing on the cake was melting, as you can see. I thought I might get a piece of this cake, but no. Must’ve been for VIPs only.
Saps: I’ve always loved the Ziegfeld, but I always thought an actual 146-degree curved Cinerama screen would fit perfectly in that space.
A member named Rory sent me this photo a few years ago. I know he’ll be happy to see it posted here.

Vito, Sonny, … if your next two posts are labeled Michael and Fredo, someone is pulling a prank on you :)
Vito: the new site gives us the ability to remove our own posts. Maybe this explains the 5 missing posts. Tinseltoes may have deleted them himself.
I wonder where they got Sonny from? The name I first entered as my username back in 2003, BillHuelbig, also comes up in every one of my posts now.

Hey, I just checked the photos and it HAS been deleted. Thank you, whoever did that.
Sorry guys. I posted the wrong picture (Los Angeles Theater) on this page. I asked for help in getting it deleted, but haven’t heard from anyone yet.
“The Tree of Life” opens today at only two theaters in NY and two in LA. I assume the Chinese isn’t one of them, but wouldn’t it be nice if it was.
Just goes to show the drawing power of the classics on the big screen at the Ziegfeld, whether it’s classic movies or a classic Verdi opera. Give people real quality stuff and they will come out for it.
