The whole Granite Run mall is being demolished? It as a great mall. I went to the theater twice, once in 1991 to see The Prince Of Tides and in 2007 to see Harry Potter. It was always a great neighborhood.
Big Joe I agree and wonder why The Paris can get mostly exclusive first run films but the Ziegfeld can’t
Great news Howard. The area is coming back with this opening and the old 69th Street theater now Theater 7000 and of course long live the Tower.
I lived in NYC from 75-83 and it was the marquee then Garycom.
I lived in Jersey City in 1977 for about a month and it was a quad then when I saw Pete’s Dragon there.
So it isn’t used as a regional theater anymore.
I always hated this theater. Terrible screens.
He has an excellent point. The theaters here in Asheville NC don’t have any restrictions on what theaters beer and wine are taken into.
Very nice theater and screen
Carmike is the worst theater chain around after Frank Theaters.
Al, do you know if they undivided the 3 large auditoriums that had been divided? I suspect they are going to add more. Very strange for AMC to purchase a small theater.
Did they ever fix the 3 auditoriums that had damage from Sandy?
Is Stomp not playing? Are they remodeling the theater?
Three cheers for opening The Interview tomorrow. Freedom of speech wins again
It appears that demolition of this theater has started. The box office is intact, but all the outer and inner doors are gone and it looks like they are also removing the seats. Very sad this theater could have come back big time when the mall takes off if a new chain like AMC invested money in it and converted it to digital and one of their cinema and dines.
Maybe the fight isn’t dead. This could be wonderful news.
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.
