Very glad Disney had the world premiere of Into The Woods here at the Ziegfeld and not at the El Capitan in CA. It seems to have been on Dec 8
I hate Carmike Cinemas. I knew they would ruin this theater when they took over.
If my memory serves correct, this theater had 70MM projection and showed many films in 70MM. Howard Haas can you confirm this?
Everybody going enjoy and be grateful you can see it at the Ziegfeld in 70mm. Where I live in Asheville NC there is no theater that has ever been equipped to show 70MM. What a bummer.
Howard theater 1 masking opened left to right. Theater 2 masking went down just fro the top.
I was only 7 when it closed, but I do know that on weekends they showed Italian double features because at the time it was a predominantly Italian neighborhood. After it closed it became a social security office then a office supply store in the early 80’s Funny I had a dream about this theater the other night. If I remember correctly the name Savoia hung above the marquee vertical and curved.
Will we still get news stories daily Ross? I am still waiting for a like button on comments like Facebook.
Please update status to OPEN
Good point Howard. The aspect ratio for 70mm at the Ziegfeld and the Boyd were actually not as wide as a scope 2.35 ratio.
Is this going to be a true 2.35 aspect ratio 70mm showing or 1.85 which The master was. to me 1.85 aspect ratio is not true 70mm
It is markp. thanks
How many multiplexes did National Amusments open on drive in site and close in less then 20 year. Besides this I can name the Whitestone Multiplex in the Bronx, the Atco multiplex in South Jersey and there is one more in North Jersey off the New Jersey turnpike.
msroane79 you are correct it was Bob Wilson Dodge. Also the status should be updated to demolished.
Chris1982 thank you so much for keeping us updated on the drive ins. They are a dying breed that need to make a big comeback.
Giles I really don’t I guess I need to look it up
Anyone know if by some chance they fixed the curtains?
I thought the last film filmed in 70 MM was The Master. I know nothing about this film.
Have they gone digital?
The information should be updated there were actually 2 screens at the Steel Pier. The music hall had movies with a vaudeville show and then there was the Casino was just showed movies.
Yeah thanks Chris1982. Now someone needs to reopen the Fair Oaks it already has the digital projection.
Actually Chris1982 I called the recording this year and the drive in closes the 2nd week in September for the season. I was there last year the 3rd week and it had just closed. I was very disappointed.
cmbussmann loud previews seems to be the thing. We have Regal and Carolina cinemas here and the loudness of the previews is ridiculous.
I grew up there The Alan and never remember that theater which would go back to the early 60’s. All that was there in the 60’s was the Terminal, Tower and 69th St.
UGH Carmike sucks what a loss. They closed every theater they purchased from Cineplex Odeon in Tampa. Big time loosers
