Hi Meredith, Michael, Lisa, David, Sean, Brett, George, Paul—
wow— that was fun!
Lisa, sure; there are ghosts— but right now they’re all smiling & waving at us!
when the theatre is listed as part of your “favorites” list, an email automatically goes to you.
I was one of the managers in 1976 – 1977, and during that time the Bleecker had a different double feature every day!
Lorenzo, I felt the same way about the Bleecker. I was manager 1976 – 1977. I only left because… [see Aug. 2005, above!]
THANK YOU for the clip— brought back lots of memories.
I was manager at the Tiffany 1978 – 1980.
Now my two teenagers go to see it at the Nuart, L.A.
It was my first job after moving here from NY.
Also, my first friends in Los Angeles. And they still are:
hi David, Meredith, Terri, Michael!
and Jim and Queen George, in Heaven.
really? what year?
David, how is NC? Michael & I still sing your “Christmas Quarrels!"
Meredith, come visit L.A!
I live near there. Inside what used to be the auditorium/lobby is a bunch of little stores, not separated by walls. I’ve bought stuff there, and all the prices were negotiable. Maybe that’s why they call it a swap meet. Behind the building, besides Smart N' Final, are a produce store and a toy store. I’ve been there lots of weekends, and have never seen anything going on in the parking lot.
I MISS THE FOX VENICE!
something similar happened with an 800 number at Goldwyn— when it rang late at night on the last button, it was always for a radio station request line in Kansas City. We had fun with it; and took lots of requests for ‘Stairway to Heaven!’
Nothing’s there but the pillars. I cried.
MarkNYLA: update your profile! ie: LA/NY theatre-related stuff
One day in the summer of 1979, my Tiffany staff & I took a day off from Rocky Horror, and went to an all day Beatle Film Festival at the Fox Venice. The manager & staff were very hospitable, and took us on a tour of the theatre. Upstairs, there were couches, and windows that overlooked the marquee. You can see them in the above picture.
Meredith, do you remember that day? I loved it!
Meredith, How great to hear from you—it’s been LITTLE WHILE!
Isn’t this site fun?
My email address is on my profile, let’s be pen-pals!
I’m still friends with David!
I’m been in California the whole time since the Tif,
but I’m a New Yorker, and I’d love to hear what & who & where!
In 1985, Enzian began as a repertory house offering six to 12 classic films each week as well as the occasional live show. By 1989 had Enzian refocused and moved into the then-risky field of showing first-run independent features. Surrounded by weeping oaks, a bubbling fountain, and a beautiful courtyard, Enzian Theater is a unique movie-going experience. It’s Central Florida’s only full-time, non-for-profit alternative cinema.
There were no comments here, so I put up something from the theatre’s website. I saw Inherit The Wind here in 1986, and it was a unique experience: instead of theatre seats, there were tables and chairs. You could bring your dinner in from the attached restaurant; and eat while watching the movie!

Hoppy: it looks like we have to change
the ‘Display my email address’ “no” to a “yes”
for private email
ok, we did that. Does anyone know: what do we click to send
a message privately to another member’s email? Thanx!
I saw King Kong on the giant screen during an Art Deco show
at Radio City during the ‘70’s. Cool!
Hoppy, you did the profile update. Now I can see what your favorite movies are. Contact ( I think) is for private email.
Hoppy, would you like to update your profile + contact?
Hoppy, I contrasted your picture of Picwood’s final show,
and Ken’s 1946 ‘Picwood newly built’ —
it’s hard to see that it’s the same theatre!
It’s hard to believe looking at that post World War 2 shot of the Picwood, like Hoppy says— it’s so EMPTY! The building with the bowling alley/ arcade that was next door to the east of the theatre doesn’t look like it’s been built yet.
Think of that next time driving past the Westside Pavillion (in this case; Westside Two- west of Westwood Blvd.) on crowded Pico Blvd!
wow, Picwood, 1946! great picture; thank you, Ken!
Were you at Rocky Horror when I was there ‘78-80?
What a party!
I’ve only seen â€œHow the West Was Wonâ€ on TV, but what a GREAT movie!
