go on line to kewgardenstheatre.com to check out the website and see the original photo of the theatre in the thirties. the outside was not changed at all except the marquee. years ago they widened lefferts blvd. and shortened the sidewalk. the delivery trucks constantly backed into and damaged the oversized marquee. it had to be modified. the facade was recoated with fresh gray finish to duplicate the original concrete exterior. it looks even better than the original which had no punch.
in response to film101, i work at the cobble hill and he’s way out of line. i know for a fact that this person was totally unprofessional and ran a film festival for ten years and did everything an hour before the first screening. of course everything went wrong. he hooked up a 220volt projector without letting anyone know by his own technician using jumpers directly to a rectifier. he could have burnt down the building. he shorted out three power supplies. the sound systems are all dolby with QSC state of the art amps. the two auditoriums are also digital, DTS and Dolby Digital. he’s taking out his frustration on the wrong theatre. take some blame yourself for being so unprepared to run the festival properly.
