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.

Mikeoaklandpark commented about Savoia Theatre on Nov 2, 2014 at 2:16 pm

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.

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

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.

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.

I thought the last film filmed in 70 MM was The Master. I know nothing about this film.

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
