The same thing was done at Loews Astor Plaza. After the final show they had construction workers ripping the screen apart. I hate it and all these multiplexes that have taken away all our grand theaters.
NYer I agree 100% about the marquee.
Cinedelphia, was it not shown in scope? I assumed even digital it was filmed in 2.35 aspect ratio.
What is the name of the group. I know all these theaters from my childhood
I saw Hello Dolly revival there and it was awesome on that huge cured screen as was Fame when it moved from the Ziegfeld.
When I saw the 50th anniversary digital print of My Fair Lady locally here in NC, the aspect ratio was 2.20. The theater it played in has masking that that closes top and bottom. After the slide they closed the masking to scope ratio 2.35 for some previews, but once the filme started they opened the masking and MFL was shown with the black bars at the top and bottom juts like your picture shows TH8 was.
Thank you Movieholic, Robert R and Al Alvarez. I had the same comment on Nov 17.
I hope you are Mark P. Best to you
What I remember is when one of the double features was in scope they kept the masking open even for the film that was flat. If both films were flat the masking was closed.
New photo added of the new signage for Theater 7000.
Very stupid and infuriating. There is no respect left for long time theaters either legit house or movie houses. :(
I have tried to find where the listing is for all theaters showing The Hateful Eight in 70 MM roadshow for two weeks and have come up empty handed. Can anybody help? This is a film that should definitely play the Ziegfeld.
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.
