The Hello Dolly date was a typo and will get repaired. Sorry about that; thanks for the correction.

HowardBHaasEsq commented about Madison Square Garden Entertainment buying Chicago Theatre on Oct 15, 2007 at 11:39 am

Warren,the article says the sale isn’t finalized yet, so I guess it could fall apart. It does appear to be a sale rather than a lease.

As to Radio City, that must be a long term lease since Cablevision spent tons of millions of dollars there to restore it.

Roadshow,
Thanks for the correction. The modifications to the Rivoli and
the World Premiere of October 13, 1955 Oaklahoma! will be added.

Perhaps somebody can verify by a news clipping or something as to “Goodbye, Mr. Chips.”

I hope I’ve added something of interest to the site. If not, then others can feel free to lash out like Warren.

View link (which makes it easy online to find 70mm World Premieres, but not 35mm) is uncertain whether or not the 70mm World Premiere on November 5, 1969 of “Goodbye, Mr. Chips” was at the Palace
/theaters/6635/
or elsewhere. Same uncertainty regarding a reissue of “Ben Hur” in 1969 but I wasn’t concerned with reissues.

Was “Windjammer” 70mm or a different process?

Thanks, Mark for your answer which is what I was thinking. A major project like this didn’t get completed without earthquake retrofitting, and government oversight. There is no need for any blogger (without engineering expertise)to scare away audiences by implying the theater isn’t safe.

Enjoy the new Introduction.

Closed as the Intro says, no current use pending consideration of how to reopen. That’s been the status since closure.
