Long live the Lafayette!
After leaving a multiplex without seeing “The Aviator” the other night, I found out that the film was showing at The Lafayette Theatre in……Suffern? Oh yeah, I’d driven by before, but had never been inside.
We set out early fron Hewitt, fearing the usual mad lines we encounter at the multi-type joints. So this gave us the opportunity of being the first to enter The Lafayette.
Why we stood in an aisle for a good 10 minutes before taking our seat can only be explained by being there! What a marvelous place! It brought us right back to the 1950s/1960s, when movie theatres still existed.
The movie was good, but even if it hadn’t been, our night at The Lafayette is something that we’ll be often repeating now. Thank you to the fine beings who’ve preserved a treasure.
