Bill Huelbig commented about Capitol Theatre on Jun 18, 2011 at 7:11 am

BobbyS: It was the most incredible movie theater experience I’ve ever had, before or since. The size and shape of the Capitol screen, combined with the greatest science-fiction movie ever made – nothing else will ever come close!

Bill Huelbig commented about Walter Reade Theater on Jun 17, 2011 at 9:18 am

ErikH: The Walter Reade screened the 70mm “Cleopatra” again in May 2011 as part of an Elizabeth Taylor retrospective, and I missed it. I also missed the September 2010 screening you described. I am determined not to miss it a third time! I just hope they screen it again next year.

I saw “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Fiddler on the Roof” here last month as part of their tribute to Norman Jewison. Both films looked and sounded beautiful. Jewison appeared in person after each film, along with conductor Andre Previn (“Jesus Christ Superstar”) and lyricist Sheldon Harnick (“Fiddler”).

I’d better get myself added to their e-mail list. I wouldn’t want to miss any upcoming shows that are as good as this.

I posted a page from the NY Daily News from August 1960 which shows the “Psycho” wraparound sign. It’s on this theater’s Photos page. It’s not the greatest picture of the sign, but at least you can see what it looked like. Hopefully someone will find a better shot of it.

43 years ago today – a life-changing event. I saw “2001” at the Capitol. I try to commemorate it every year here on this page.

Early 1972. I was 17. I remember how nervous I was, pacing around this lobby, as I was soon about to be let in to see my first X-rated movie, “A Clockwork Orange”.

I saw “Nashville” here in 1975. One of the greatest movie experiences I’ve ever had. I sat up close, so the Panavision image was quite large in this relatively small theater.

Thanks, Dave-Bronx!

The year is 1963. Notice the date of the How the West Was Won premiere. It’s a safe bet this premiere never happened – not on that night, anyway.

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.

Bill Huelbig commented about Cinerama Dome and ArcLight Cinemas on Jun 7, 2011 at 10:59 am

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.

Bill Huelbig commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Jun 7, 2011 at 3:49 am

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.

Three tiny lenses produce one of the biggest motion picture images ever.
