ERD commented about Loew's 46th Street Theatre on Jul 18, 2015 at 4:20 pm

There is no doubt that this building will never become a theatre again due to neighborhood’s uncompromising religious view about seeing movies. One of the negative aspects of the location it is close to the elevated train and there is a lot of noise when a train passes by on New Utrecht Avenue. The theatre will most likely be knocked down just like the Boro Park.

ERD commented about Radio City Music Hall on Nov 11, 2014 at 3:43 pm

The fact still holds that the false proscenium cuts down the original proscenium opening and in many people’s opinion looks ugly. The stage shows of many decades ago were more spectacular. Originally, the speakers were hidden in the grills of the ceiling.

The fake proscenium cuts down the size of the scenery, saving money. Glad to learn they stage show has improved. I still remember those wonderful 45 minute Leonidoff stage productions that were presented with the movies.Something so magical about them.

The ruins of what was once one of the most beautiful movie theatres in Brooklyn. Unfortunately, the entire goal of building such types of theatres was to make a profit. When that stopped, these buildings were either abandoned, converted to something else, or destroyed. Like other CT members,I thank Matt Lambros for sharing these photos of what Loew’s 46th Street Theatre looks like now.

The Multiplex in Johnstown continues to show first run motion pictures. It is well maintained.

ERD commented about Tuxedo Theatre on Apr 25, 2012 at 12:47 am

I saw a photo of this theatre but can’t remember from what resource. It was a wide shot of the block (pre World War I)) so it is not too clear.

ERD commented about Roxy Theatre on Feb 16, 2012 at 10:12 pm

As a youngster, it was a wonderful experience to see “Carousel” and a stage show at this magnificent entertainment palace. The Roxy was my favorite theatre in Manhattan. Some other musicals I saw there were “The King & I” & “Damn Yankees. (You are right Simon, it was not “Oklahoma!”)

I find it hauntingly sad and depressive, a sign of “modern” times.

ERD commented about This is Cinerama (2011 Trailer) on Jun 5, 2011 at 12:45 am

I remember when “THIS IS CINERAMA” was presented at the Ziegfeld theatre back in the 1970’s. I was there for its first showing. Before the movie began, the elderly Lowell Thomas, with two pretty girls at his side, took a bow from the front of the auditorium.
