Thanks Joe Vogel. The American Airlines Theater aka Selwyn has kept its name since becoming a legit theater.
I hate the new name. Why has this theater gone through so many name changes?
Sold out at the Ziegfeld awesome news Howard.
Has this theater been renovated and reopened?
I thought Bow Tie was operating it for Cablevision. Does anyone know why the marquee suddenly mysteriously reads A Walter Reade Theater?
Thanks Peter Apruzzese. I thought it was. I know there is no theater that has 70mm capacity in Asheville NC. I would travel within the state or SC if I can find a theater that still had 70mm projectors
The 50th anniversary print of My fair Lady may have been. The scope on the screen seemed different from the scope previwes. The masking which lowers top and bottom rather then side to side was opened when the film started and the aspect ratio seemed different then 2.35
Will the 70MM version of The Hateful 8 be on film, or is it possible to do 70MM in digital?
The inside was identical to the Sutton in Manhattan.
Is it possible to do 70mm on a digital print or does it have to be film? I know the new Quinten Tarrentino film is in Ultra Panavision and 70MM.
That would piss me off markp and I wouldn’t go there.
It closed in 1977 markp
Chris 1982 when I was there a few years back the were renovating the theater for live use. The marquee was back. Are you sure this is a new picture? It looked like that picture 5 years ago.
They showed a lot of Disney films in the late 60 to early 70’s when they closed.
I saw several movies here when I lived in NYC. From what I remember, Star Wars, Altered States, Superman, Raiders Of The Lost Ark and the rest I can’t remember
What a huge screen.
Great news. A theater once more and not demolished or converted into some stupid retail space. :)
Did Bow Tie take their sign down? I know Walter Reade Theaters have been long sold off but it would be great if their family restarted the company by taking over this wonderful gem.
Can anyone tell me if this theater had true scope on the screen it looked very large. I know it was a Floyd theater and they were known for always wanting the full screen so scope features were off in outer space and the bushes. I hated it
Status needs to be updated to 2 screens and a twin. If you look closely at the newspaper add you’ll see it was a twin.
Status update the theater is being gutted for a restaurant/ retail space at the new Asheville Outlet Mall. Very sad no chain came in to rescue this theater.
Great photo. I hope they still use the curtains
StanMalone it was very small but comfortable theater. I saw All That Jazz there and one other film. They had great curtains that opened and closed during the previews and before the main feature .
That is what the Ziegfeld need is to have films showcased only at that theater.
This is great news.
