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
It is markp. thanks
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.
msroane79 you are correct it was Bob Wilson Dodge. Also the status should be updated to demolished.
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.
Giles I really don’t I guess I need to look it up
Anyone know if by some chance they fixed the curtains?
I thought the last film filmed in 70 MM was The Master. I know nothing about this film.
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.
