In Cincinnati, the offices were located on Central Parkway. On the corner of Central Parkway and Liberty was a free-standing Warner Bros. building, which still bears the WB logo. Next door was the Universal office and shipping facility. A cluster of smaller offices housed Columbia, Buena Vista, Allied Artists, 20th Century Fox, United Artists, RKO, Republic, and several indies (Realart, Screen Classics, etc). Across the street were the National Screen Service and MGM buildings.
Starting in the mid-to-late 1960s, they started moving elsewhere. 20th Century Fox was the first (I think) to head a few blocks downtown to rent space in the Cincinnati Enquirer building. They all scattered over town, then quietly went away when branches were consolidated.
Today there are no film offices in Cincinnati, and before long, the local depot is to be shuttered as well.
Sorry, Simon. The answer is a resounding NO!!! The only ones hurt will be the theatres who miss out on hit films. There are so few of them, compared to the losers that are released, who can afford to pass up something as important as “Alice in Wonderland.”
Besides, corporoids don’t care about anything. They’re not programmed that way.
A pox upon their plex if it’s to be built from the blood money received from desecrating and dismembering a perfectly good drive-in.
More info, please…location, price, capacity, etc.
Found this info in the “FAQ” section of the website…
Are you showing actual films?
Yes (and no). We are very pleased to be showing exclusively 35mm film prints of all titles listed in The Plaza Theatre. Weâ€™ve worked hard to procure the best available film prints of each title and weâ€™re pleased that the major Hollywood Studios have provided us with mostly archival film prints.
In the New Philanthropy Theatre, we will be presenting digital screenings of all titles listed for this venue.
Hate to break the news to you, but although these will be on the big screen, this series is run from DVDs. I went to a couple last year, and the scope titles were pan-scan versions.
Try Tom Holland at Holland Releasing. He has 35mm prints on things like Night of the Living Dead, First Spaceship on Venus, and others, including a colorized 35mm print of Plan 9 From Outer Space, which comes with other Ed Wood material. His website should have a complete listing.
Yes, it’s still open Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon showing mostly first-run films.
