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
Howard when I looked this theater up a few times on AMC web page it showed they only had 1 or 2 shows daily which is what they did with the AMC Palace in Philly before it closed.
So I am glad to hear they aren’t looking to close it. I wish I would hit Powerball big I would buy the Ziegfeld and this theater.
It really concerns me that AMC will close this theater. Does it do well?
There must be a catch. That must be just for the business. I wonder how much the rent is?
Oh nice. What are cinema suites?
Where is Dumbo?
I love it. This theater is part of my childhood. Amen to this organization for renovating this theater and make it alive again.
I only knew Mike Rogers because it was in the local paper.
Also Mike, the info above needs to be corrected, it was taken over by Epic theaters and turned into a discount house after Epic opened the multiplex up the road.
The last time I was in NO was 2003 and the theater was open Labor Day weekend showing movies. I do remember they showed The Godfather, Cabaret and Lady Sings The Blues that weekend. Prior to that it was a club so I am not sure what they used for a screen
I am confused moviebuff82, is it not 13 screens anymore? How many are left?
Even before the complex was built, it was always listed as a Regal theater coming. Consolidated
was never mentioned even in newspaper articles.
Pardee hospital has purchased the property for their use as a walk in clinic.
ROSSPLEASE UPDATE THEATER AS CLOSED. THEY CLOSED YESTEERDAY. ALSO SCREENS SHOULD HAVE BEEN 5.MIKE
The theater is closing. There last day of business will be July 20. There reasoning is because of the mall renovations which is a crock. That mall has been dead for 20 years. They choose not to put any money in this theater for years and went to a discount house in Oct 2010. Very sad as there have been many upset people about this on their Facebook page. They said they are in early negotiations with the mall developer( a new outlet mall)to possibly open a new theater. All I can say to the ownership of this theater is Bah Hum Bug.
Maybe the Nederlander Organization will purchase it and make a small theater.
All I can say is the SamEric chain should have never sold their theaters to United Artists. They closed almost all of the theaters they purchased in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. UGH
Remember seeing this theater on a school trip in the early 70’s.
