This film is better known as Loose Shoes.
The final engagements at the theatre: The Place Beyond the Pines, special engagements of Jaws (Friday), The Sound of Music (Saturday) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (Sunday), The Company You Keep, Trance and The Sapphires.
Woody Allen on a drive-in screen. Interesting.
I see this was taken around 1985, since The Breakfast Club and The Falcon and the Snowman are playing.
At the time of release, Breakout was the widest released film of all-time (at 1,300 theatres).
The other film on this ad, Warriors of the Wind, is better known as Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. The New World cut of the film deleted 30 minutes from the film and director Hayao Miyazaki disowned this version.
Actually, it would be around 1994 that this picture was taken.
I wonder if Disney is going to consider selling the theatre due to the fact they only seem to release a new movie every few months now (and they never play DreamWorks titles at the theatre).
The 3-D movies of the 1980’s had glasses with clear (polarized) lenses. It wasn’t until Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare that the red/blue glasses were used for film.
Aliens wasn’t supposed to play both screens originally. The second print came from the Murray Hill (which closed a few days before the film opened).
I’m surprised that prints of Lady Terminator still survive.
Didn’t RoboCop 2 have its premiere at this theatre?
I see that Twilight Zone: The Movie, The Survivors and Yellowbeard were the opening engagements.
It looks like it was taken around November/December 1993, as there is a poster for Ghost in the Machine (which opened on December 29th, 1993).
Surprised to see the Scorsese-produced indie Search and Destroy playing with many of the big summer movies that year.
When the IFC Center first opened, Me and You and Everyone We Know played on all three (at the time) screens and had over a $30,000 PTA on opening weekend.
Les Miserables is set to open wide. And even with the Oscar buzz, it simply looks like another Phantom of the Opera (also, will the musical crowd go for one shot on handhelds?).
The film on the marquee is The Intouchables.
Either that or The Greatest. Both Universal and Columbia used sneak preview ads with only arrows.
What I can make out:
Shallow Grave, Friday March 10th, 1995, 9:30 pm, Auditorium 1, Bala, Student $5.00. Enjoy the New Bala.
Lincoln is only on 35mm and digital.
I also found that Predator 2 opened at the Regency but it was likely gone by Christmas.
Some of the movies that were showing at the Regency during Christmas 1990: The Russia House, Kindergarten Cop, Look Who’s Talking Too, Mermaids, Edward Scissorhands, Misery, Three Men and a Little Lady.
I noticed that Jurassic Park played for nearly five months in second run here. I knew the film was a huge success but to play five months in second run (only being pulled for its first-run reissue) is some staying power.
